Empowering the Future Infrastructure - Skills and Improvements Needed

DRIVES (2018 - 2021)  is a large EU project which implements the vision of GEAR 2030. Gear 2030 is a strategy pannel in Brussels where the association of car manufacturers in Europe and the association of all Automotive suppliers in Europe share an expert team to develop the vision of the future skills / job roles needed for the Automotive industry till 2030. The year 2030 marks a corner stone where cars are driving in a networked infrastructure and cars are developed with so much intellegence, electronics, sensors and software to offer self driving. Moreover, it is planned to network the entire infrastructure, with a production in an industry 4.0 environment and on the air uploads to update cars constantly. Also new energy concepts are planned to provide enough electric power and new service and business models are created. And new chemical and material research is done to allow leight weight vehicles, and vehicles that can reload batteries during drive etc. Members of DRIVES will share exeriences with contributing parties, and experts contribution papers can share their ideas with GEAR 2030 and DRIVES.

Important Information

Thematic Paper Topics

  • Competences needed till 2030 to get the idea of a networked infrastructure and self driving cars a reality.
  • Design patterns and best practices for future integrated architectures supporting self driving cars, self flying planes.
  • Functions in the cloud versus vehicle functions versus component functions in a car/plane.
  • Future network strategies and communcation design patterns.
  • Future energy concepts (electric cars, electric lanes, electric fuelling) and future Ethernet topology in cars and resulting impact on architectures.
  • How to extend Automotive SPICE to include the assessment of infrastructure functions / projects in self driving car scenarios.
  • Special topics such as on the air update, ASIL for cloud functions, industry 4.0 networked to infrastructure, is zero emission really possible ?
  • New business concepts.
  • New city concepts.
  • New networked mobility concepts.
  • Best practices and state of the art.

EuroAsiaSPI² is publishing an annual SPRINGER book and the EuroSPI books show a total of 150000 (one hunded fifty thousand) chapter downloads. The workshop papers will form a chapter for this thematic topic in the SPRINGER book.

Additional Information

Key Contributors

The goal of this workshop community is to share the strategic ideas of DRIVES with leading industry and reserach and to gather feedback that can again be incorporated into the GEAR 2030 and DRIVES project developments. Please contribute your best practices, ideas, visionary concepts to get involved in DRIVES and to influence the future development of skills in Europe.

Interactive Workshop Approach

Focus of interest and main questions discussed during the workshop will be:
  • Best practices concerning core competences needed to develop the 2030 vision
  • Best practices concerning new service and business models needed to develop the 2030 vision
  • Visions and best practices concerning Industry 4.0, Infrastructure and future car functionality
  • Visions and best practices concerning standards
  • Visions and best practices concerning electric design and energy concepts
  • Visions and best practices concerning future design patterns and skills needed
  • etc.
Each presentation will be discussed towards these main topics of interest. A panel discussion at the end shall come up with a summary of the solutions presented and with new research topics to focus on to solve this integrated approach (work for next year to meet at next EuroAsiaSPI² and share again).
