KEYNOTE SPEAKER: To drive or to be driven? How self-driving vehicles might impact our mobility behavior

Although it is still uncertain how fast and how strong self-driving cars will diffuse in the transport system, high impacts on mobility are very much likely in the next decades. Self-driving cars promise increasing safety and energy efficiency, less traffic issues in cities and especially higher comfort for people who don’t want to drive on their own. Nice prospects, but who are the persons benefiting most from autonomous vehicles? And how could those people change their travel behavior in case they don’t drive anymore but are driven by a computer?

He has a doctoral degree in Aeronautical Engineering from Technische Universität München (TUM). Before joining ifmo he worked as a Research Associate at the TUM Institute of Aircraft Design, where he focused on the combination of scenario analysis and technology evaluation, applied for different aspects of the air transport system. At ifmo he deals with future developments and challenges relating to mobility across all modes of transport, with automobility being only one aspect among many. Taking on an international perspective, ifmo’s activities focus on social science and sociopolitical, economic and ecological issues, but also extend to cultural questions related to the key challenges facing the future of mobility.

Automotive simulations in the private and public cloud – An easy guide and live demo on how to access and use CAE on demand, at your fingertips

Simulation engineers are often faced with computing resource limitations, when a model becomes really big or a deadline is just around the corner and the available resources are not fast enough. Here helps CAE in the Cloud, be it a private cloud with an extension into a hosted remote cluster or a public cloud for bursting to additional computing capacity. A new software technology developed by UberCloud on Advania cloud resources are High Performance Computing (HPC) containers which host any application software, workflow, and tools, and which are fully portable across different resources, on premise and in the cloud.

Continuous Architecting to Support Continuous Integration and Delivery

Based on concrete examples from the NGEA project we will discuss how an electrical architecture can support fast continuous integration and delivery:

  • How do continuous integration and deployment practices in automotive engineering impact the system architecture?
  • How do architectural decisions in the system architecture impact continuous integration and deployment practices?

Specifically, we will discuss why and how these questions impact architectural evaluation to address the following concerns:

  • Avoid building the wrong architecture
  • Reduce the number of architectural assumptions
  • Allow responding quicker to the market, manage dependencies and changing interfaces

Based on our experience so far, we propose to plan for continuous architecture assessment with the aim to facilitate the evolution of electrical architecture.  We share first experience with applying architectural assessment in this context.

Requirements specification tool for functional safety based upon Linked Data

To support agile development of safety critical embedded systems according to ISO26262, Scania has together with KTH, within the Vinnova funded project ITEA2-ASSUME, developed a new tool for authoring requirements specifications. The tool is based upon the Linked Data standards such as RDF and OSLC. This enables the user to write requirements with formal references to the system- and SW-architecture and also with trace links to other requirements. Furthermore, version and variants are managed through the use of Linked Data. Another key feature is built-in support for specifying requirements as so called contracts. This allows for modular structuring and breakdown of requirements for the purpose of compositional verification, which in turn is a key solution to deal with large, variable, and complex systems.

Autonomous cars and Autonomous teams – developing the car as a software product

The continuous price fall on CPU:s, sensors and other electronics has trigged the automotive digital revolution, which is now challenging the R&D organisations, not only to adopt agile methodologies for software development and new business models, but also to invent methods for developing the new ”softchanics” – complex software controlling complex mechanics. Commercialising this new domain, formerly limited to space, military and advanced robotics applications, requires new methods, combining agile and continuous integration with model based strategies and mechanical design. It also requires new strategies for supplier collaboration, for testing and architecting the product.

Jonn Lantz is a Technical Specialist at Volvo Cars, working with methods of agile mechatronics development and continuous integration, with a focus on electric propulsion systems.

The Real/Virtual trucks and the need for speed in Innovation
Why quick Product Feedback Loops using CI/CD are so critical in the near Future Automotive

  • Feedback is fundamental for making the right decisions and thus providing the optimal customer solutions. We are all today living in a connected world where data is provided in vast quantities and almost instantly. Neither instant feedback or continuous delivery (CD) is anymore a pipe dream – it’s a necessity to stay competitive and to remain on the market. The power of feedback data is demonstrated every day in our connected lives.
  • How to ask the right questions (test) to get the best feedback (data) and how to create the needed technical feedback capability becomes a critical part of the business setup in the very near future. The future is data driven and fact oriented with fast feedback loops, specifications and estimations will play less of a role.
  • This presentation will talk more in detail on how technologies and solutions like test frameworks, value streams, work automation (Jenkins, Artifactory), virtualization (Container tech etc.) and Virtual Trucks and virtual test system are used at Volvo Group and how that is supporting in the quest for feedback and innovation. Feedback is a gift bringing new innovations. Innovations are the currency of our next success at Volvo Group.
