Within this complex chain of sensing-processing-controlling-actuating many types of ECS failures might occur and must be avoided by design or at least predicted in time during vehicle operation. These failures which occur with certain probabilities, reasons, and external influences include:
ArchitectECA2030 envisions to cover both safety assurance by design and safety assurance in-operation.
propagating through the entire ECA vehicle stack consisting of onboard HW, onboard SW, off-board SW and data, development and validation methodologies, to support hazard identification, risk analysis, and sufficient risk mitigation.
The Objectives of Architect ECA 2030 are represented in a chain and aim to strengthen Europe’s position in the fields of safe and reliable electronic components and embedded intelligence.
Objectives 1 to 3 represent the group of technical objectives for addressing the ECA vehicles challenges:
Objectives 4 and 5 highlight the contributions to economic and societal challenges
ArchitectECA2030 aims at developing a semiconductor-centric ecosystem of innovation in terms of reliable, robust, and fail-aware ECS for ECA vehicles beyond the state-of-the-art and viable technologies to increase the attractiveness of ECA vehicles by translating customer requirements and concerns into a value proposition. The methods, tools, technologies and applications are developed along the entire value chain in tandem.
The stringent implementation is driven by the spirit of a cross-skilled consortium of European partner across the ECS value chain.
