Understanding automotive electronics services

Automotive electronics such as advanced driver assistance systems (ADAD), advanced motor controls plus influence from the Internet of Things are fast increasing the electronics content in cars we drive today — the smart car of tomorrow is here.

Today, the cost for a car is roughly 40% electronics. Driving this are new technologies and capabilities in communications, infotainment, and increased safety features. These trends will place further demand on automotive wiring harnesses (especially copper based for device powering) which are expected to change from proprietary protocols (heterogeneous) to homogenous (hierarchical) smart car networks interconnected by Ethernet.
