July/August 2002 (vol. 22 no. 4)
pp. 14-18

Designing automotive computer systems involves satisfying stringent cost requirements and providing highly reliable operation in adverse environments. Despite this cost/performance challenge, electronic and computer-based features continue proliferating in vehicles, leading to widespread use of embedded real-time control networks. In the next few years, networked control will reach such a sophistication level that using additional performance and safety features will require giving up mechanical linkages between the driver and the vehicle. Networked computers will control vehicle operation just as they do today in fly-by-wire aircraft designs.
