Bosch has developed an infotainment domain computing system built to bring new features to next generation vehicles.
As the brains of the infotainment system, the connectivity and computing power will allow vehicles to feature in-car communication, in-car payment, video streaming, voice assistants and more. The system supports multiple in-vehicle systems in a single solution and gives automotive OEMs a flexible and scalable control unit for future vehicle technologies.
The platform uses a combination of pre-integrated applications, including those developed in-house, and can accelerate time to market for these next-generation vehicle technologies, Bosch said.
The infotainment domain system is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Automotive Cockpit, which is designed for high performance visual and audio as well as artificial intelligence for assistance, safety and support of positioning in navigation systems.
The platform includes voice assistants through Amazon Alexa and Cerence, streaming through Access Twine4Car and navigation via TomTom Navigation for embedded and cloud-based navigation.
The enhanced display experience is made possible by Texas Instruments’ FPD-Link SerDes technology for high-speed display and camera communications, which is supported by Molex ultra-reliable connector solutions. Additionally, the system supports BlackBerry IVY intelligent vehicle data platform, co-developed by BlackBerry and Amazon Web Services for new applications and use cases.
