There’s 100+ Computers in a Car

There are more than 100+ computers (ECUs) in a new luxury vehicle.

Millions more lines of code than a fighter jet, than Facebook even; and up to 20% of the total vehicle cost is for the computers. It runs on the CAN bus network, learn more here.

Read in online at Autonet.

Favourite line:

Some luxury vehicles contain as many as 100 individual computers.


It takes up to 100 million lines of software code to make this happen.  To illustrate the complexity, consider that an F-35 Joint Strike Fighter operates on 1.7 million lines.

Neat photo, eh.

It’s a test of all the computers and software inside a Cadillac.
