Let’s FACE the Future of Automotive E/E Architectures
This year CEA LIST will present a structuring and innovative project being developed with the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance. The FACE project aims at developing a new E/E architecture for new generation of vehicles. The E/E architecture will provide (1) a highly scalable and modular hardware structure able to answer future application needs and support a wide range of vehicles and services; (2) the capacity to execute safety and non-safety heterogeneous applications with a guarantee of non-interference; and will come with (3) a full set of configuration, integration and programming tools. This project will drastically simplify the E/E architecture of the vehicle by replacing tens of ECUs by a centralized computing unit. Besides the safety, the dependability and the security benefits of this approach, the integration costs will be reduced by minimizing the sizing margins at multiple levels, and by exploiting its customizability and scalability.
Nicolas Ventroux is the head of the Computing and Design Environment Laboratory at CEA LIST. He received a M.Sc and a M.Eng. in Computer Sciences from INSA, Rennes in 2003, and the PhD degree in Electronics from the University of Rennes in 2006. He is a CEA Senior Expert in multiprocessor modeling and design, and was a project manager of many national and European projects. He was a scholar visitor at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) in the CALCM laboratory in 2012. He wrote, as author and co-author, 12 patents and several papers in conferences and journals in the multi and many-core domains. He is also a reviewer for several international conferences and journals since 2006.
