QOTD - Code-powered Cars?

It takes dozens of microprocessors running 100 million lines of code to get a premium car out of the driveway, and this software is only going to get more complex.

--Robert N. Charette, writing for IEEE Spectrum

  1. The "100 million" number is based on a quote in the article by Prof. Manfred Broy, a professor of informatics at Technical University, Munich.
  2. The article also lists figures (in millions of lines of code, or MLoC) for other technologies: F-22 Raptor (1.7MLoC), F-35 Joint Strike Fighter (5.7MLoC), and the Boeing 787 Dreamliner (6.5MLoC).
