Computing in vehicles has increased dramatically, with electronic control units (ECUs) communicating over increasingly complex and heterogeneous networks and presenting challenges in scalability, validation, and security. In this article, we describe the concept of smart network interfaces incorporating programmable computation at the network layer to enable hardware-level fault tolerance, application consolidation with sufficient isolation, and system-level security.
