LAS VEGAS, Jan. 7, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Aptiv PLC (NYSE: APTV), a leading technology company committed to making mobility safer, greener, and more connected, unveiled today a modern, sustainable vehicle architecture that enables automakers to improve safety, increase vehicle efficiency, and deliver the intelligently connected, software-defined experiences consumers want.
Aptiv's Smart Vehicle Architecture (SVA) debuts at the Consumer Electronics Show 2020 as today's vehicle architectures have reached an impasse and are no longer able to handle the rapidly increasing software and hardware complexity of feature-rich and highly automated vehicles. At the same time, OEMs are making unprecedented investments in electrification, which SVA is ideally suited to support. The intersection of these trends – exponential increases in software-enabled functionality, vehicle electrification, and intelligent connectivity – will have a profound impact on the future of mobility and society.
"Automakers will need to adopt a new vehicle architecture to unlock software innovation and actually bring to market the innovative concepts on display across CES," said Kevin Clark, President and Chief Executive Officer, Aptiv. "As a full systems solutions provider, uniquely positioned with both the brain and nervous system of the vehicle, we know that Smart Vehicle Architecture is the right approach to enable the future of mobility."
Aptiv's expertise in software and systems integration, combined with its ability to provide automotive-grade compute and signal and power distribution inside the vehicle, sets the company apart from others looking to help OEMs address vehicle electrical and electronics complexity. SVA is a sustainable open platform that lowers total cost of ownership and enables feature-rich, highly-automated vehicles. It is also built to meet the most stringent functional safety and cybersecurity standards. Additional benefits include:
Aptiv is displaying its Smart Vehicle Architecture and high-voltage electric vehicle solutions inside the company's private pavilion at the Consumer Electronics Show 2020 in Las Vegas. In addition to SVA, the company will showcase advanced solutions designed to save lives today and in the future, efficiently meet environmental and security standards, and empower automakers to deliver the unique and differentiated user experiences that define their vehicles.
