China Car Led directly to the prosperity of industry, the automotive electronics industry’s rapid rise. China’s auto industry, the rapid development in recent years, annual output in 2007 to nearly 8,882,400, second only to Japan and the United States as the world’s third largest car producer. Downstream application markets, the rapid growth on the automotive industry play a huge boost.
To data released by CCID Consulting, China’s auto electronics market in 2007 continues unabated development of the scale reached 121.57 billion yuan, an increase of over 40%. China’s auto electronics market size of over 30% growth for five consecutive years, the current industry in a high growth period, and achieved leapfrog development, has begun to take shape. Data show that the electronic systems and software, is the proportion of total vehicle cost increases, has reached 25% -40%; In addition, the automotive technology innovation for more than 90% of all electronics-related, of which 80% is embedded software brings. CCID also predicted by 2012, China’s auto electronics market to more than 320 billion yuan. (Specific data see Figure 1)
In short, the rapid development of automotive electronics industry is obvious to all, especially the recent State Council, “the automotive industry Promotion Plan” after the enactment of the domestic automotive industry will usher in the spring of rapid development. But behind the scenes of spring in this, the domestic automotive industry is facing many problems and challenges. OEMs such as automotive electronics manufacturers and joint problems, industry standards, the domestic auto electronics makers to compete with foreign-related business issues, the future of automotive electronics growth and so on. For which a number of hot issues, the author interviewed a senior industry expert, I hope these answers have a certain degree of enlightenment to the reader. Decisive Force
Automotive electronics industry as it involves the electronic information industry and the automotive industry, so automotive electronics has been the standard can be said of many names. Comparing the current popularity of the international software development standards and protocols have OSEK, AUTOSAR, JasPar so, the bus system of standards and protocols are CAN, LIN, MOST, FlexRay, Ethernet, etc.. Software development design standards, as it involves a wide range and the entire automotive industry has a great impact, has been highly OEMs and automotive electronics manufacturers attention.
Which, as the center of German car maker launched its members have been all over the world AUTOSAR (AutomotiveOpenSystemArchitecture) most cause for concern. The standard is the history of car manufacturers, suppliers and related industries the largest among Cooperation . More than 100 member companies across the automotive, electronics and software industries. The core members include BMW, Bosch, China, Daimler – Chrysler, Ford, General Motors, PSA Peugeot Citroen, Siemens VDO, Toyota and Volkswagen. Thanks to automobiles, semiconductors and software vendors support the standard is likely to become a future automotive electronics system design, open standards. In fact, she can be seen as a resource bank of standard modules that can be shared components.
AUTOSAR will help define common to all cars ECU, sub-function hardware and software modules, software and hardware to achieve the standardization of common functional modules, and enhance communication between the design level, shorten the design cycle, improve security and reliability reduce the total cost. But industry experts also believe that, AUTOSAR should be further spread, still faces many challenges: on the one hand the system security and system stability to be improved; on the other hand, many expect the company to join, it should make adequate preparations. Today, automotive electronics are being converted from hardware to software, each company’s software strategy should integrate sometimes face many difficulties. Only have their own software development strategy, enterprises can truly understand the role and significance of AUTOSAR. Speaking of the software as standard
, I have to mention are the Japanese auto manufacturers and car electronics manufacturers established JasPar (JapanAutomo-tiveSoftwarePlatformandArchiteckure) alliance standard. The alliance more attention, not only because of JasPar standard automotive industry in Japan compared their popularity, but because of the alliance’s integrated sense of worthwhile domestic enterprises to learn. According to experts said, JasPar Union was established in September 2004, said since its inception with AUTOSAR and FlexRay Union cooperation. In October 2005, the three Union announced that it will start concrete cooperation activities.
In foreign automotive software standards constantly improve, and constantly promote the rapid development of domestic industry, China’s automotive electronics industry is in a disorderly competition, lack of uniform standards for the state. AUTOSAR is the face of the Chinese manufacturers waved, China joined the AUTOSAR development or other alliance or select its own standard, China’s automotive electronics industry has become a primary issue facing.
Recently held in Shanghai in the 2009 International Symposium on Advanced Automotive Electronics, guests get the most of a problem of standards. At the meeting, from the domestic vehicle manufacturers and related automotive electronics manufacturers in the experts agreed to create standardized software platform called for the establishment of software design and development of Chinese standards.
Assistant President of Tongji University, Dean, Professor Yu Zhuoping car in an interview with our correspondents pointed out that some foreign companies to form alliances to build vehicle standards, there is no standard on the joint is not up, thus not form the Non-Aligned standards. China’s auto industry faces a major challenge is to reach a consensus on the entire automotive industry, early in the competition to capture common key technologies as soon as possible to form a standard. This competitive advantage, or is disorderly competition.
