Software and ECUs in automobiles
A modern premium automobile has more software code running it, than the latest generation fighter jets. A new S-class has as many ECUs as an Airbus A380. Surprised? I sure was, but this is what in article in the February issue of IEEE Spectrum says. The full article is available at the following URL:
IEEE Spectrum: This Car Runs on Code
It says a modern premium automobile contains close to 100 million lines of code, and though there have been comments on the scale of software used, i think we all accept that the automobile today largely runs on code.
There are issues raised concerning serviceability of these cars and I think its all the more relevant in India. As automobiles become more and more complex, does the requisite service infrastructure exist? More importantly are we ready to bear the service costs? I thought this is a relevant issue which the forum can debate.
Mods: I tried searching various threads, please move this thread if this section is not appropriate.

The system in a is modular small cheap controller for individual tasks.
One Advantage this is there will be trained [read educated] people working on once car apart from A.S.S. same happened in the rest of the world.
