Since the introduction of the first microprocessor-based systems into massproduced vehicles in the 1980s, the electronics content of automobiles has continued to grow. Future trends including moves towards autonomous vehicles and connected cars will continue this growth. Historically disciplines such as reliability analysis and systems engineering have been used to develop robust electronic systems and more recently functional safety as approached in ISO 26262 builds on these foundations. However the future growth means that it is important to consider the holistic issue of resilience of electronic systems with a cross-disciplinary approach incorporating wider issues including cybersecurity and availability properties.
