Meet Tuxera virtually at TU-Automotive Europe on November 23–26, 2020!

TU-Automotive Europe is the largest conference and exhibition in Europe showcasing the future of connected cars and auto mobility.

Join us on November 23–26, when TU-Automotive Europe is back for 2020 – and 100% virtual. Tune in to talks from industry thought leaders and network with other professionals in this four-day program. Come meet Tuxera at the event, where we’ll be happy to answer your questions live and talk with you about everything automotive.

To prepare yourself for four days of illuminating automotive talks, check out some of these whitepapers on automotive file systems by our experts:

Solving data storage challenges in the automotive projects of tomorrow

Historically, automotive IVIs were literally read only. Functionality has been defined by the developer at the very beginning, with no major changes over lifetime. Consequently, the number of write cycles for flash memory was a no-worry. Now, systems have become much more complex with ECUs consolidated into domain controllers and hosting multiple functions on one SOC. The introduction of Android makes cars look like mobile phones, but with a higher lifetime of 10-15 years. Together with OTA updates, this results in many more write cycles that might make the flash wear out before end of life of the car. Fragmentation is observed to have an impact on performance in mobile devices – and could simply break an automotive system. Issues like FCA’s endless loop update from 2018, or the Spotify bug from 2016 with writing 5 GB per hour to flash puts further risk on future systems. We describe those effects more in detail, and suggest measures to mitigate the risks.

The impacts of file system fragmentation on automotive storage performance

Groundbreaking studies have shown fragmentation to be a risk to modern automotive systems, potentially causing sluggish flash storage performance and even critical system failure within a car. This whitepaper examines in detail the ways that fragmentation affects the performance of an automotive system.
