Future electrical/electronic (E/E) architectures will shift from domain-specific to vehicle-centralized, zone-oriented architectures. Today’s distributed application software will be consolidated in only a few powerful vehicle computers. These vehicle computers will be connected to the remaining embedded control units, sensors, and actuators via zone electronic control units (ECUs). The reduced number of control units leads to lower system complexity and an increase resource efficiency.
