This paper describes some of the challenges and considerations which go into developing the electrical and electronic (E/E) architectures of today’s sophisticated and highly connected on and off-highway vehicles. The interdependent design objectives that have to be considered are discussed, as well as the technologies that can be used to reduce the risk and time taken in resolving these complexities. Once the E/E architecture is defined, detailed design of the networks takes place ensuring that all signal data is available to functions across the vehicle. This paper examines several of the challenges faced by the network architects and designers. Without assistance, managing these multiple system considerations could lead to a very complex design process. Today, assistance for architects and designers comes in the form of advanced design tools.
