Next Evolution Connected Car –
Challenges and experiences on the way to cloud operations

Concepts for software-defined vehicles, automated driving, but also the importance of innovative online services for drivers and passengers define new requirements for future Connected Car platforms.

Agile development methods, ever shorter update cycles for software and services – also over-the-air – as well as the integration and management of new partners and devices make the operation of connected car platforms increasingly complex and force migration to the cloud.

However, not everything is always plug-and-play: cloud services can cost more than expected, their standard functions often do not sufficiently cover the high demands of connected vehicles with large data volumes and strict security requirements, and subsequent architecture modifications cost time and money.

In his presentation, Oliver Bahns gives an insight into the challenges and experiences on the way to cloud-based Connected Car platforms.
