Other Automotive Council Roadmaps

The Automotive Council’s consensus roadmaps have been charting globally significant technology trajectories since they were first produced in 2009. In 2013 a series of product and technology roadmaps were published around the key vehicle sectors and strategic technologies. Since then, the Automotive Council Technology Group has been publishing additional roadmaps to strengthen their portfolio.

Intelligent and Connected Vehicle Roadmap

The Automotive Council’s Intelligent Connected Vehicle roadmap was launched at LCV2017 and was created by the Automotive Council Technology Group’s ICV sub-group in collaboration with AESIN. The roadmap builds upon the Transport Systems Catapult’s “Travellers’ Needs” study as well as the high level “Intelligent Mobility” roadmap published by the Automotive Council in 2013. Looking beyond specific technology streams, the roadmap includes how the enabling environment, changing social trends and the evolution of the transport infrastructure will impact upon future vehicles.

Electronic and Electrical Architecture Roadmap

The Automotive Council’s Electrical and Electronic Architecture roadmap was published by the Automotive Council Technology Group in 2017. Future connected and automated functions will drive the evolution towards domain centric and ultimately, high performance, centralised architectures with higher capacity powernets. The new E/E roadmap recognises the need for increased integration of sensors and growth of self-learning systems, better communications infrastructure, improved processing speeds, solid state sensors as well as enhanced cyber security and skills to deliver the vehicles of the future.

Virtual Product Engineering Roadmap

The Automotive Council’s Virtual Product Engineering roadmap was published at LCV2016 and developed by an expert steering committee convened by the Automotive Council Technology Group. The roadmap reflects the strategic importance of advancing multi-physics modelling tools, increasing virtual validation and reducing product development timeframes. This roadmap is critical to the future design and manufacture of all products and technologies so cuts across all of the Automotive Council’s roadmaps. Following the update of the Automotive Council propulsion roadmaps in September 2017, the Virtual Product Engineering roadmap was redesigned so all roadmaps are visually consistent.

Energy and Fuels Roadmap

The Automotive Council’s Energy and Fuels roadmap was published in 2015 by an expert steering committee convened by the Automotive Council Technology Group. The roadmap creates a high level consensus view for the future of transport energy in the UK that is consistent with the passenger car, heavy duty/off highway and advanced combustion engine technology roadmaps published by the Automotive Council in 2013. Following the update of the Automotive Council propulsion roadmaps in September 2017, the Energy and Fuels roadmap was redesigned so all roadmaps are visually consistent.

Intelligent Mobility

The Automotive Council’s Intelligent Mobility roadmap was published at LCV2013 and developed by an expert steering committee convened by the Automotive Council Technology Group. The roadmap aims to understand the key technological developments that will increase mobility, improve safety, and enhance user benefits whilst simultaneously reducing pollution, consumption, and congestion.

Motorsport Technology Roadmap

The MIA Motorsport Technology Roadmap was researched and written by engineering consultancy Ricardo in collaboration with the Automotive Council. It defines future motorsport development in five key areas – engine, transmission and driveline, vehicle, energy management and intelligent transportation systems.
