The automotive industry sets out to master automated driving use cases, which require a fail-operational performance. Therefore, the trend of building solutions based on concepts previously implemented in industries like aerospace and space is coming to the automotive industry. With one pronounced difference – there are stricter cost constraints as solutions are aimed at the mass market. This calls for a redefinition of the key practices in implementation with the aim of cost reduction.
