I could imagine, that in the future some kind of automotive ethernet will replace CAN, LIN, Flexray and MOST. But this is a hot potato!

The copper wiring neither makes a car more rigid nor helps to improve balance.

On one hand, the lighter the weight; the better the fuel efficiency. On the other hands, certain amount of weight is required to maintain the balance and the rigidness a vehicle. I am looking forward to some insights from professional with automobile industry background.

The kind of noise the electronics has to deal in a vehicle, is something that needs to be tamed. Auto electronics has to be extremely reliable as there are lives at stake.

Use wireless sensors with power harvesting. Even better weight savings :)

In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
