Delphi, Red Bend, Mercedes-Benz, AUTOSTAR, FCA & VW experts show how to test embedded software at ESIA Detroit

The road to autonomous and driver-assisted vehicles is a bumpy one. Automotive manufacturers and OEMs face increasing software vulnerabilities from a suite of security and safety risks, including complexity of autonomous systems, advanced infotainment and electrified powertrain.

“Statistics show that more than 50 percent of recalls of cars are because of bugs in the software, not because of some mechanical issue,” Oren Betzaleli, Executive Vice President of Product, Red Bend Software, was quoted as saying.

emebed300x150Automotive and embedded software experts with intimate knowledge of the industry’s challenges will discuss how to properly develop and test embedded software at the Embedded Software Integrity for Automotive Summit this May 23-25 in Detroit. Leaders from companies such as Delphi, Bosch, GE, Kia, Continental, and more, will work to mitigate the unintended behaviors and failure rates from automotive software and hardware bugs.

Modern day vehicles rely on embedded software for an array of functions. However, the systems are riddled with loopholes and bugs that cause unintended consequences and behaviors, contributing to a surge in recalls – more than 63 million in 2014 alone. The event will host the industry’s top leaders because of the steep challenges faced by the automotive industry in ensuring functional safety within high-tech vehicles. The time is now to develop better software and testing for tomorrow’s vehicles.

The following industry experts will speak at the eventt:

  1. Alexander Dolpp – Director, E-Drive Software, Mercedes-Benz
  2. Michael Groene – Global Software Engineering Director, Delphi
  3. Gary Streelman – Director, Advanced Engineering & New Concepts, Magneti Marelli
  4. Bob Gruszczynski – On Board Diagnostics Communication Expert, Volkswagen
  5. Richard Chutorash – ADAS Engineering, FCA Group
  6. Rick Flores – AUTOSAR Steering Committee Member
