How autonomous and electric cars push the need for more reliable electronics


Public, Members and Partners


The automotive industry is facing two major evolutions in the coming years: the move towards autonomous driving and the transformation from combustion to 100% electric cars. It is obvious that these trends push the demand for more electronic components and systems, but also increase the requirements towards reliability of these components/systems. In this workshop, several stakeholders of the automotive electronics industry will show their view on how to deal with design for reliability (DfR), production, standardisation and system integration of electronics in automotive products for which reliability is an essential property.
