Achieving Secure Live Remote Debugging of Connected Microcontrollers with a Microvisor Architecture Feb. 20, 2023, 8:31 p.m.
Adaptive planning, evolutionary development, early delivery, continual improvement, flexible responses to changes in requirements – all these agile practices are considered standard in modern software development. Yet firmware development for connected devices seems stuck in the past; bound to follow the waterfall model that ends with the shipping of devices.
The Software-Defined Vehicle: Impacts Across the Automotive Ecosystem Feb. 20, 2023, 8:17 p.m.
Introducing new features — decoupled from the hardware development cycle — means that electronics architecture and hardware must now be designed to support the software, not the other way around. This applies not just to advanced connectivity or ADAS features, but also to every system in the car, including steering, braking, propulsion, etc.

Don’t Recall Me. I’ll Recall You Feb. 20, 2023, 8:13 p.m.
Cars always have externalities on their environment, from pedestrians to other vehicles to just random Seven-Elevens. So any quality issue impacts not only the driver but also their surrounding. This is true if the malfunction is electrical or mechanical, but even truer with software, which aims to interpret the environment and decide how the car should behave in such settings. In particular, the software will determine whether to yield to a pedestrian crossing the road and the distance it needs to maintain to the next car when the road is icy. So software-related issues have the potential to impact more people than standard quality issues, a fact that is supposed to make us even more sensitive to such software-related issues.
