CES 2022: We move the world!

Las Vegas, United States (online)

Anyone who wants to move forward must do so in a sustainable way. This does not just mean the focus on environmentally friendly drives. Modern vehicles contain more and more software from generation to generation. Unlike classic hardware components, such as the body, software is never “finished”, but needs to be updated and kept fit throughout its entire lifecycle. As part of CES 2022 from 5 to 7 January, IAV will be showing software-based solutions that go beyond the market launch in its own digital showroom.

In consideration of the rapid spread of the Omikron variant of the Corona virus, IAV has cancelled its physical participation in the technology show. Instead, the company is presenting its content of the exhibition via digital channels. With this decision, IAV wants to protect the health of its workforce and customers. IAV will be presenting a networked system that can protect not only individual vehicles, but also entire fleets, including comprehensive mobility ecosystems.

Driven by the digitalization and network, the requirements for E/E systems have changed considerably, and are the basis for networked mobility. Meanwhile, a corresponding software solution is used for almost every new functionality, which makes the vehicle architecture increasingly complex and confusing. The vehicle architectures are extremely networked with the entire digital world, which in turn is based on software outside the automotive world. In order to ensure that the issue of cybersecurity is not neglected in this boom, UNECE will be introducing new regulations for type approvals from 2022, which will affect both the vehicle itself and the companies participating in the development. Across technology and industry boundaries, IAV develops smart solutions and supports its customers in meeting the standards required by law.

Zonal Safety - Cyber Defense Systems

In order to keep the increasing software complexity manageable, IAV has developed a concept for zonal protection. Zonal gateways and ethernet bring structures that enable new approaches to cyber-attack protection. The engineering team demonstrates a potential added value with a cyber-defense system that has been integrated into a commercially available vehicle. Thanks to zonal security defense mechanisms, not only the vehicle is protected as a whole, but also the individual control units and the functions stored on them have their own protection mechanisms.

ACDC - Automotive Cyber Defense Center

Since vehicles are also networked with each other and with their infrastructure, it is no longer enough to equip individual vehicles with their own safety systems. With its own approach to a Cyber Security Defense Center, IAV shows what happens when a virus spreads across entire vehicle fleets, enters a Navi Cloud, or manipulates the infrastructure. The Defense Center will detect and analyze such potential scariest scenarios and will initiate countermeasures. For this purpose, it is constantly investigating the mentioned systems for anomalies. A suitable countermeasure in an emergency is, for example, the placing of an affected vehicle in a quarantine status.

CarryAir - Autonomous fuel cell drone

The silent, autonomous drone also presented the IAV at CES shows that networked mobility does not only take place on the floor. CarryAir is to be used for inspection flights and the analysis of power paths and pipelines as well as for securing off-road areas such as plant premises. A fuel cell drive train is intended to provide a significantly increased range compared to a battery-electric powertrain. Compared to the helicopters used so far mainly for these missions, CarryAir will be more cost-effective in trim cover for the flight implementation. In addition, its fuel cell drive protects the environment.

    In the future, intelligent drone systems could take over tasks that are still often performed by helicopters today.
