Global and China Automotive Intelligent Cockpit Platform

Dublin, Aug. 03, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The “Global and China Automotive Intelligent Cockpit Platform Research Report, 2021” report has been added to’s offering.

Next-Generation Intelligent Cockpit Platform: Deep Domain Integration, Pluggable Hardware, Reusable Software

As new-generation E/E architectures evolve, deep integration of cockpit domain may become a trend.

The development of automotive E/E architectures comes with the integration of ADAS functions and V2X systems into the cockpit domain that already combines conventional cockpit electronics.

Through the lens of function integration, the cockpit domain tends to be integrated. As well as basic capabilities including dashboard and center console, rear seat entertainment, HUD and voice, quite a few suppliers currently integrate also surround view camera, DMS, IMS and some ADAS functions into their intelligent cockpit platforms.

In Harman’s case, its cockpit platform already integrates L0 ADAS functions from AR navigation and 360 surround view to DMS/OMS and E-mirror. In future, Harman will combine intelligent cockpit domain controller and ADAS domain controller to support L1~L2+/L3 capabilities, giving OEMs scope for lowering their costs and simplifying systems.

In 2021, ThunderSoft also introduced TurboX Auto 4.5, its new-generation intelligent cockpit platform that allows the cockpit to integrate DMS and automated parking solution and interact with ADAS scenarios. Its intelligent cockpit that can start the built-in computing platform in the parking process optimizes low speed driving with stronger computing force or assists the driver in parking, providing better driving experience.

Cockpit SoC trends: stronger CPU and AI computing force, more displays and sensor interfaces, modular and renewable

Neusoft Vehicle Computing Platform (VCP) also allows flexible, free configurations with hardware plug and unplug. The separation of the computing unit from the functional unit successfully decouples the software and hardware development process, making it a reality features and advantages like upgradable hardware, sharable computing force and scalable software, to build more flexible business models for automakers.

Cockpit software platform: a standard, scalable, open integrated basic software platform

Quite a few technology firms including Continental EB, ThunderSoft, Neusoft Reach, Huawei, ArcherMind Technology and Banma Information Technology have made deployments in intelligent cockpit software platform.

At present, decoupling and separating the intelligent vehicle cockpit software and hardware has been a common belief. Based on service oriented architecture (SOA), the decoupling and reuse of vehicle software and hardware at the underling layer enable rapid iteration of software functions, and the interaction with users over the air (OTA) helps to deliver personalized and differentiated cockpit product experience.

TurboX Auto 4.5, ThunderSoft’s SOA-based intelligent cockpit platform, enables decoupling of scenarios and services, and rapid development and iteration of scenario services.

Besides needed rapid iteration of cockpit software, reusability, scalability and enough flexibility should also be taken into account in SOA design so that the needs for a mass of inputs can be satisfied with minimal software change.

Neusoft already builds its general standard software architecture and software platform that can fast adapt to different mainstream SoC hardware platforms, and help to realize mass production of high-, mid- and low-end multi-platform intelligent cockpits shortly to meet the needs of different OEMs.

In Jul. 2020, Foryou introduced ADAYO Automotive Open Platform (AAOP) which decouples the telematics software ecosystem at the upper layer and the hardware ecosystem at the underlying layer. AAOP focuses on the intelligent cockpit platform. Based on the standard, modular, layered and categorized software framework of AAOP, Huizhou Foryou General Electronics’ software development model can be transformed from project-based embedded software delivery to layered, categorized software development, which accelerates research and development, reduce R&D preparations and improve R&D efficiency.

Automotive market business models are undergoing disruption. Under the new cooperation model, components suppliers and OEMs partner more closely, and their joint development of cockpit software platforms will become a trend. Tier1s have even been a part of automakers’ engineering design, even partaking in their product design. Platform-based open cooperation on both hardware and software holds a trend. Tier1s are becoming so-called Tier0.5s, while Tier2s work towards Tier1s.
