Digital transformation behind the wheel

A deeper dive into the technical domains of the consumer-facing cockpit including system architecture, compute, connected services and cockpit experience.

Technology leaders in the automotive space are starting to make leaps across many functional areas simultaneously. The integration of complex software in cars occurs under stronger governmental regulations than in consumer electronics – while differentiation remains a top priority to provide dynamic and exciting user experiences with the latest software and feature updates.

Some of the key forces in the cockpit transformation include the reduction of costs as fewer and more powerful ECUs are used to improve the design, certify, and assemble new cockpits. Consequently, the lighter weight reduces the complexity of the system architecture. Improved security is another benefit when future-proof ECUs are integrated to enable timely security patches via OTA and tackle rapidly evolving cyber-attacks.

In addition to the evolved core components, an improved system lifecycle creates new monetization opportunities by decoupling software from hardware – a necessity to enable an agile strategy for consumer-facing connected services to remain fresh in driver’s minds.

We have seen proof of an accelerating trend in the transformation of automotive digital cockpits. New vehicle models are being built with a more scalable system architecture that accommodates the future needs of software updates. We will discuss the increasing data and process demands that require smart compute and chip technologies. Besides the technology domains we also focus on key differentiators, monetization potential of services and the overall cockpit experience.
