Next Generation Automotive Architecture Modeling and Exploration for Autonomous Driving

Abstract

To support emerging applications in autonomous and semi-autonomous driving, next-generation automotive systems will be equipped with an increasing number of heterogeneous components (sensors, actuators and computation units connected through various buses), and have to process a high volume of data to percept the environment accurately and efficiently. Challenges for such systems include system integration, prediction, verification and validation. In this work, we propose an architecture modeling and exploration framework for evaluating various software and hardware architecture options. The framework will facilitate system integration and optimization, and enable validation of various design metrics such as timing, reliability, security and performance.
