AESIN uses workstreams to break down the components of automotive electronics processes into manageable specialist groups.
ADAS & HAV
Technologies for Increased Autonomy in a Functional Safe Environment
Tim Edwards (Horiba Mira)
Gunny Dhadyalla (Univ. of Warwick )
The ADAS & HAV workstream subgroups include:
Sensing, System Engineering ¦ Machine Control ¦ Validation & Verification ¦ Standards & Safety
Developing the Approach to Manage Highly Integrated Embedded Systems
Michael Welsh, Altran
Define and establish Digital Resilience and Survivability approach
PETER DAVIES, THALES
PAUL WOODERSON, HORIBA MIRA
The Automotive Security subgroups include: Security Best Practice Methodology ¦ Certification ¦ Vulnerability Disclosure ¦ Cyber MOT ¦ Security Landscape
The group will prioritise the Automotive Electronics security elements according to Industry demand and work closely with the Automotive Council UK and Zenzic.
More Electric Powertrain
Enabling Technology of the next Generation Electric Vehicles
Rob Millar, Williams Advanced Engineering
Dr. Alastair McGibbon, CSA Catapult & Andrew Ashby, BAE Sytems
Subgroups within this workstream include: RESS (Renewable Energy Storage Systems) ¦ PEMD (Power Electronics, Machines & Drives) ¦ Charging Grid ¦ Cross Sector PEUK (Power Electronics UK)
Electric Powertrains are transforming the road vehicle of the future. Electric Vehicles offer energy efficient and low CO2 solutions building on latest Storage, Power Electronics (Wide Band Gap technology), eMachines, Drives and Charging technology already under development in the UK. Led by Williams Advanced Engineering, the group will prioritise the Powertrain Sub Group Elements according to Industry demand and Roadmapping, working closely with the Automotive Council UK, APC(Advanced Propulsion Centre), Compound Semiconductor Applications Catapult, DER(Driving the Electric Revolution), FARADAY and PEUK(Power Electronics UK).
Clean and Connected Mobility
Enabling Technology for V2X in a Low Carbon & Secure Data Environment
GARY BRAY, SIEMENS MOBILITY
The clean and Connected Mobility subgroups include:
Connected Infrastructure ¦ Data & Services ¦ Comms. Technology ¦ Impacts of Connectivity on Low Carbon Transport ¦ Data Integrity & Reliability
This work is aligned with the Automotive Council UK “Intelligent Connected Vehicles” forum and the Transport Technology Forum (TTF).
This workstream builds on the work done by AESIN members in the UKCITE Project: www.ukcite.co.uk
Research Advisory Board
Providing guidance to the Steering Committee and to other workstreams
Kevin Vincent, Coventry University
The AESIN Research Advisory Board is designed to provide strategic guidance to the AESIN Steering Committee and technical guidance to the 5 AESIN workstreams.
The Advisory Board helps ensure that AESIN is aware of and can exploit effectively, relevant collaborative research opportunities funded in part or whole by national and international funding bodies such as UKRI, Innovate UK, UK Research Council, Horizon 2020 etc.
