The Project


The vision of ArchitectECA2030 is to provide a harmonized pan-European validation framework enabling mission-oriented validation of electronic components and systems (ECS) for electric, connected and automated (ECA) SAE L3 to L5 vehicles to improve reliability, robustness, safety and traceability.



The mission of the ArchitectECA2030 project is to define a harmonized pan-European validation framework for ECS, and the methods, tools, metrics around it, coordinated with global, and regional (e.g. US) activities for ECA vehicles including periodical re-validation and certification which may become the legal resilience for automated vehicles.



The Figure illustrates the chain of ArchitectECA2030 objectives which depend on each other. Objectives 1 to 3 represent the group of technical objectives for addressing the ECA vehicles challenges, while objectives 4 and 5 highlight the contributions to economic and societal challenges. The objectives aim to strengthen Europe’s position in the fields of safe and reliable electronic components and embedded intelligence.
