Innovation in the Automotive Industry continues to grow at a daunting pace. The integration of software into embedded systems represents great opportunities for differentiation and is the predominant accelerator of increased functionality and advancement. But the increasing complexity that comes along with it has already shown its toll, resulting in overstrained car development departments, product failures, and the associated cost explosion in terms of warranty costs and decrease in customer satisfaction. In 2014, the industry is well on its way to shatter all previous records. Six- to seven-figure recalls have become the norm, with manufacturers worried about further regulation while still recovering from the aftershock of the $1.2-billion fine handed to Toyota in the wake of its unintended acceleration debacle.
