Automobiles will be part of modern society for a long time, and consumers will continue to look to trusted companies for their cars. Right now, the automotive industry is going through a massive transformation from "metal bashers" to hi-tech software companies. Early movers embracing advanced software, data, and edge computing, like Tesla, are beating their traditional rivals.
To accommodate this transition, internal software development must be more nimble, iterative, and significantly different from traditional development cycles in the automotive industry. New development cycles and processes must balance speed and agility with safety and security. Industry newcomers have demonstrated that consumers are embracing new methods of software delivery, development, and validation.
In this session, Jason Stinson, chief technology officer at Renovo, will lead a discussion that covers:
- The unprecedented challenge facing traditional automakers to transform their own internal software development and validation practices.
- Outlining a path forward for automakers to quickly adjust and compete on a global scale with their advanced competitors.
