BY ERTS 2018 GENERAL CO-CHAIRS
Embedded systems are becoming more and more important in our day to day life, most of the devices that we are using contain « Electronics » and « Software » and are pushing us towards Industry 4.0 and digitalization. All major industry changes have been fueled by major technology steps and this one can be considered as the one of the software.
Expressed as such, we are focusing on technology only but there is also a major transformation from User perspective. User Experience is the new most important point in the development of new products and this focus is at the origin or the consequence of a services-oriented industry.
In the Automotive domain, we are facing these exact same new challenges with our developments for Electrical, Autonomous and Connected Vehicles, with increasing risks on Safety and Security. Software is becoming the first value of our vehicles and also the main asset we need to create and maintain. This will support introducing different User interactions with our products and work on the loyalty to our brands. Continuous relationship and evolutions are key to achieve our goals.
All these new features require interactions between on-board and off-board resources and their development will need to rely on robust System Engineering methods.
ERTS is now a very well-known convention, with people coming from almost all parts of the world with representatives from Academia to Industry teams. It is a real opportunity to exchange across domains, to share best practices, to discover roadblocks and items in research phase, to present difficulties and solutions.
The more the attendance, the better the exchanges!
