Digital Cockpit Analysis

Comprehensive worldwide analysis of the providers of automotive digital cockpits and the ways solutions are being implemented

Passenger cars are being transformed. They are increasingly autonomous, connected, electric and software dependent. The in-car experience in new vehicles is being built around the digital cockpit and an automotive OS, connecting automotive features (such as driver assistance, infotainment, navigation and comfort), multi-modal user interfaces, apps, other smart devices and the cloud. Several technology companies and automotive OEMs are developing digital cockpits. A growing list of car models now include a digital cockpit, and the ecosystem is expanding rapidly. The very nature of digital cockpit platforms is that they are flexible and scalable – car makers can customize and personalize solutions, and features and functions can improve and evolve with software and firmware delivered via over-the-air updates.
