My own personal bugbear in embedded transportation devices is three-fold: 1) Power management, especially in the charging controllers for the huge Li+ arrays; 2) Avionics - that should be obvious; and 3) trucking - the average cost of a tandem trailer is approx $2500. Just how much scrutiny are the ABS brakes in the trailer wheels going to get when the cost margins are as thin as that?
