[Unedited] Doug Burcicki with Geoff Koch and Conor Peick

The Future Car: A Siemens Podcast

Increasing vehicle complexity, including all the sensors associated with autonomy, is felt directly in the wiring harness, which must string all these electronic devices together. However, everyone is also talking about consolidation of electrical systems, from many dozens of ECUs eventually down to a handful, if the tech optimists are right. So how will these competing trends play out? And is Elon Musk right that he can slash the total length of cabling in his vehicles from more than a kilometer down to just 100 meters? 25-year harness industry veteran, Doug Burcicki, has a take on that, also on the biggest hurdle facing self-driving cars. (Hint: it has to with a fact of life in the Upper Midwest.) Enjoy this unedited conversation with Doug. You'll find a shorter, produced version of this interview in the podcast feed, as well.
