Digital Cockpit Architecture and Evolution: Past, Present, and Future


The megatrends of electrification, autonomy, shared driving or mobility-as-a-service, and the extension of the digital lifestyle to modern vehicles are transforming the automotive industry. Not only are these trends changing what and how we drive, but they are also fundamentally changing the architectures needed to support next-generation digital cockpit use cases and experiences.

To help manage the growing complexity of cockpit solutions that include multiple HD or 4K displays, AI-based virtual assistants, immersive audio, informational safety features, and OTA hardware and software upgrades, automakers are moving toward new electrical engineering or EE architecture – also known as zonal compute architecture.

During this 60-minute Webinar, you’ll learn how a state-of-the-art digital cockpit platform provides a homogeneous solution for evolving automotive electronic architectures.

The presentation also discusses how the platform:

  • Serves as a central hub for high-performance computing, computer vision, artificial intelligence (AI), and multi-sensor processing
  • Utilizes scalable and flexible software architectures to meet the functional and safety needs of the next-gen cockpit
  • Provides best-in-class in-vehicle experiences, as well as enhanced safety, comfort, and reliability

An audience Q&A follows the technical presentation.
