Kevin Kuo, General Manager of NI Taiwan remarked, the modern vehicle focuses on the intelligence, network connection and electrification that accelerate the EV technology evolution. He added, the traditional testing method cannot solve the more complex testing challenge while guarantees the safety. To satisfy the more complex testing requirement, there is a need of united, standardized, open-testing platform. “NI is developing a testing platform satisfying the testing requirement of ADAS, Powertrain, Battery/BMS, V2X and infotainment to provide the HIL (Hardware-in-the-Loop) system for verifying Functional Safety and ISO 26262 in order to meet market needs.”
Libin Han, General Manager of D&V Electronics China said, since the company’s inception into the EV industry, D&V has been adhering to the philosophy of providing advanced and reliable testing equipment for the automotive industry. “Through continuous innovation and development, we combine our own electrical and motor knowledge, efficient testing methods and mature data analysis as an overall solution to serve customers in the industry.”
Other speakers include Douglas Ayres, Site Leader of TomTom Taiwan, giving speech about how digital maps accelerate ADAS – now and in the future; Cathy Yeh, Principal Group PM of Corp RD from Microsoft Taiwan introduced EV digital twins in empowering energy agility; Colin Huang from American Axle & Manufacturing（AAM）gave remarks on electrification roadmap; VicOne CEO Max Cheng shared insights of the cybersecurity risk of autonomous vehicles and Fangze Tu from ZoXTech talked about C-V2X test standard and system.
MIH Industry Seminar set the agenda of the EV industry and create consensus amongst experts from various areas to facilitate growth of the EV development.
