CURRENT AUTOMOTIVE INTEREST GROUP TOPIC
FUTURE OF AUTOMOTIVE COMPUTING: CLOUD VS. EDGE
As part of this GSA Automotive Interest Group and again in collaboration with McKinsey & Company, we are currently working on analyzing the Future of Automotive Computing: Cloud vs. Edge.
With the rise of connected cars and increasing demand for compute and processing power in vehicles, OEMs start to experiment with hybrid applications running in the vehicle and on a cloud backend. The question if cloud backends can bear part of the processing power of vehicles in the mid-to-long-term will have significant impact on the electronics content of vehicles. We will look into assessing which type of operations could be run hybrid vs. fully on edge vs. on cloud, including intermediary concepts, e.g. local processing in 4G/5G towers to optimize latency. We will also look at the critical security aspects involved in any of these architectures.
