Today's automobile contains many complex electronic systems; each may incorporate a large number of Electronic Control Units (ECUs) performing a single function and communicating via a common bus/network. Manfred Broy of the Munich Technical University stated that in a premium class automobile there are close to 100 million lines of software code, compared to the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter with 5.7 million lines or with the Boeing 787 with about 6.5 million lines. Broy states that “the cost of software and electronics can reach 35 to 40 percent of the cost of a car.” Present day automobiles typically contain more than 60 ECUs such as the audio system, brake system, doors, lighting, engine, transmission, batteries, and more.
The embedded software package size now amounts to tens of megabytes for engine and transmission controllers, while audio/infotainment systems are usually the largest and most complex software units, often exceeding 100MB.
