CoherenSE® - Complexity managed

A Software Platform for Next Generation Intelligent Vehicles and Machines

A major shift in vehicle Software and Electronics, with increased technological complexity

The automotive world is facing a major shift in market, technology and consumer expectations. 

Disruptive technologies have brought many exciting opportunities to the automotive industry. The complexity of engineering automotive systems is skyrocketing.

This is driven by the proliferation of new electronic controls and sensors, as well as the sharp increase in software content to introduce more intelligence on-board. However this trend is challenging existing vehicle software and electronics architectures and creating more and more complex architectures, increasing integration costs, weight and emissions.

This is only the beginning.

The industry is facing a tsunami of software and electronics content that will enable highly-integrated features such as Advanced Driving Assistance Systems (ADAS), Autonomous Driving.

Due to functional limitations, increasing integrations costs and associated complexity, the current patchwork approach of adding ECUs for new features is no longer a sustainable option.

A new solution has to be found

CoherenSE®, a revolutionary solution

CoherenSE® has been developed to leverage and strengthen the engineering of increasingly complex intelligent systems and empowers traditional Electrical and Electronic (E/E) automotive architectures.
