Targeting Vehicle Complexity

Chuck, Excellent article. It's amazing that high end vehicles could have as many as 100 microcontrollers but it makes sense.  Infotainment and new "smart" features just add to the load. Will be interesting to see how quickly there could be some combining of functions. I assume that is a trend for the future?
