The fusion of the classic domain chassis, with its brakes, steering, dampers, and the classic domain powertrain, with everything concerning propulsion, is visible in upcoming E/E architectures. The new motion domain is dealing holistically with every aspect of vehicle movement.
Reduction of complexity within the E/E-architecture, consolidation of arbitration and increase of energy efficiency are just a few benefits to be highlighted here.
For example, the Safety & Motion HPC with Continental’s central motion functions has all relevant information centrally available to decide for the best and most energy efficient chain of effects. No additional negotiation between actors necessary.
