This event is part of NMI's Embedded Software Network.

Embedded Software is a vital and increasing part of automotive systems, whether for engine management, infotainment or  safety. However, there are issues surrounding this, not least in the areas of reliability and safety.

Using case studies and expert contributors, this event will look at the motivation behind  the widespread adoption of software in automotive systems, the challenges that this brings and ways that such challenges are being addressed.

As with all NMI Network events, in addition to the presentations and discussion sessions, there will be ample opportunity to meet and network with attendees from a wide variety of organisations.
