The Design and Development of Autonomous Vehicles

By Conor Peick

A widespread transformation is taking place in the automotive industry. Changes in technology, societal pressures, and environmental regulations are all pushing vehicles to become more sustainable, safe, accessible, and smart. In response to these trends and pressures, automakers are doubling down on electrification and continuing to invest in the development of automated driving features and autonomous vehicles (AV).

AV development will only become more important in the marketplace as the competition to produce new and advanced vehicle features continues to mount. Automakers today must focus on the development of advanced features and functions to stand out in a competitive landscape. As the emphasis on advanced self-driving vehicle features continues to grow, so too does the design challenge for the engineers.

In this episode of the Future Car Podcast, Nand Kochhar, VP of Automotive and Transportation Industries, and I, Conor Peick, Thought Leadership team writer, continue a series of conversations on autonomous vehicles and how they will shape the future of mobility.

We are joined by Mark Sampson, MBSE Product Manager at Siemens Digital Industries Software to dive into how companies can address growing complexity in vehicle design, and how the specific needs of autonomous vehicles affect the design and development process.
