UK launches automotive electronic systems network

The network is supported by many of the UKs car manufacturers and supply chain partners, including Jaguar LandRover, Lotus, Nissan, McLaren Electronic Systems, Freescale, Infineon, Renesas and Visteon.
“Vehicle design has changed dramatically in recent times and cars are no longer simple mechanical machines; they are now dependent on electronic systems that make them greener, safer and more comfortable,” said Derek Boyd, CEO of NMI. “A further revolution is underway, not only with a shift towards electric vehicles but also with greater deployment of wireless communications for infotainment, vehicle to vehicle and infrastructure connectivity.

“The UK has a strong base of vehicle, motor-sport and electronic-engineering capability and this new network provides a specialist home for electronic systems innovation and supply-chain development. There’s already momentum with key players and we’d like to invite more partners to come and join the network.”

AESIN’s programme of initiatives will work in alignment with the UK Automotive Council and activity will include technology days that showcase innovation, innovation seminars to reduce technical and business model constraints and incubation sessions to progress ideas with UK Funding support.

“The ever increasing use of electronics throughout our vehicles has allowed us to make leaps forward in safety and efficiency," said Malcolm Holmes of Nissan UK. "EVs [electric vehicles] have become a reality and electronics continue to significantly reduce the CO2 from our IC vehicles. Working more closely with the key innovators within the UK electronics industry allows us to steer our product strategy towards our goal of providing innovative and valuable technology to everyone.”

“One of the key agendas of AESIN is to take a step away from what’s currently done and determine the true best practice,” said Tim Strafford from McLaren Electronic Systems. “The constraints and competition in F1, Indycar and NASCAR have made for an excellent environment for innovation. One good example comes in the system architecture; from engine control to the electric seats, there are now countless electronic control units in today’s road cars, which each add weight, space and cost. In F1, the drive to cut space and weight allowed us optimise the electronic architecture and we now use a single ECU at the heart of the car to control and monitor everything; from torque based engine control with precise fuel injection and ignition timing of an engine rotating at up to 18,000rpm, right through to elementary control of the driver's drink pump.”
