Research Report on Automotive Intelligent Cockpit Platform, 2022



The Search for Intelligent Cockpit Platforms: Intelligent cockpits are ushering in a new era of “cross-domain integration and multi-layered software design”. Cockpit hardware platform domain: Planning faster integration across domains.

NEW YORK, June 17, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – announces the release of “Intelligent Automotive Driving Platform Research Report, 2022” –
Driven by EEA centralization, higher computing power chips, and enhanced software development capabilities, the cockpit domain is constantly integrating new functions, and the intelligent cockpit is evolving from a single domain to cross-domain integration, such as cockpit domain integration and ADAS domain. Some companies have even embarked on research and development planning for multi-domain integrated central computing platforms in the cloud.

At the beginning of 2022, Thundersoft released a new smart cockpit solution. Based on Qualcomm SA8295, it is a single-core multi-screen cockpit field control solution. With high computing power and multiple cameras, it integrates low-speed assisted driving field and cockpit to better support 360° surround vision and smart parking.

In addition, Thundersoft uses the Qualcomm 8795 chip for cockpit deployment and field integration in the field of autonomous driving. Mass production is planned for 2024.

In 2021, it was the first mass-produced Bosch cockpit field control product in China. At present, Bosch is actively exploring a vehicle and cockpit integration platform that is compatible with the central E/E architecture. The devices will be designed in the form of a pluggable blade. Combined with the multi-domain SOA platform, a suite of middleware meets the demand of both intelligent driving and intelligent cockpits to integrate information between all areas of the vehicle, customize computing power, and enhance cross-domain application integration.

In April 2022, Desay SV released the mass-produced first-generation in-vehicle intelligent computing platform “Aurora”, which integrates core functional areas such as intelligent cockpits, intelligent driving and connected services, and achieves cross-domain integration from “domain control” to “central computing” , featuring intelligent computing, multi-domain integration, smart scaling (flexible configuration of “building blocks”), smart integration (designed for the open SOA platform), ASIL D, environmental protection and sustainability.

Denso is actively working on breakthroughs in domains, cross-domains, and even cloud integration. In the future, it will expand its business to the infrastructure and public sectors, and will connect vehicles to the cloud and infrastructure. In terms of cross-domain controllers, Denso will promote software development and collaboration with OEMs and technology companies.

Cockpit software platform: SOA and multi-layered design
In the context of software-defined vehicles, the separation of software and hardware has become an inevitable trend based on SOA. Cockpit software platforms gradually evolve from fragmentation to modular platform, tend to multi-layer design (that is, operating system, middleware, core software platform, application software platform, application environmental services are distributed at different levels). Software technology companies have launched cockpit software platforms.

By standardizing, modeling, and reusing software platforms, the software development cycle can be greatly reduced, and the development process can be simplified. At the same time, software and application services can be customized on demand, allowing users to enjoy differentiated functionality and experiences. With the continuous development of the EEA, software platforms are moving from one domain to multi domain/multi domains and even integrated software platforms for vehicle cloud.

In April 2022, Neusoft Reach released the NeuSAR DS (Domain System) domain controller software development platform, which can provide complete software platforms and virtualization on SOC and MCU. It covers the software suite and tool chain required by the entire development process as well as the engineering adaptation of the modular chips, so as to realize the design and development of the service-oriented architecture from a whole-vehicle perspective. It allows developers to complete the entire development process in a tool chain, and allows the initial and subsequent development processes to be coordinated more closely.

At CES 2022, Continental demonstrated how robust software and IT infrastructure based on the Continental Automotive Edge framework enable new functionality and transform mobility. This modular hardware and software platform connects the vehicle to the cloud and features several options for developing, provisioning, and maintaining software-intensive system functions. The platform also provides a software-intensive automotive architecture development environment for automakers and partners, significantly reducing development cycles and lowering development costs.

In 2021, ArcherMind launched the Fusion SOA intelligent domain controller platform, which deeply customizes the AUTOSAR protocol stack based on NXP32G (body domain) and Qualcomm 8155 (cockpit intelligent domain) for cross-domain integration and global SOA services. It is compatible with QNX, Android, Linux, etc.

In 2021, enjoy Move Technology’s mass-produced EMOS multi-domain integration software platform that integrates an improved AutoSAR AP (with self-developed deterministic scheduling and communication) and a traditional CP system. Covering vehicle central computing unit, autonomous driving field control, cockpit field control (the main functional security part), the entire structure is directed to SOA, and all its units and services are developed through a unified model to achieve maximum compatibility between services and other units .

OEMs: Strengthen self-search capabilities, improve rights in cockpit development
As per current planning, OEM cockpit system solutions are transitioning from Tier 1 supply to multi-vendor joint development and flat collaboration. With the continuous enhancement of self-research capabilities, OEMs will have a greater say in the area of ​​customization such as cockpit system development.

In terms of products, OEM cockpit single field control products have been extensively produced and installed. Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) are spreading integration across domains, central computing platforms, and self-developed OS/SOA platform, and are gradually moving towards SOA-based smart cars.

At the software level, OEMs have announced that they will develop car operating systems and core software platforms, such as Volkswagen VW.OS, Mercedes-Benz MB.OS, Hyundai CCOS, Toyota Arene, etc.

For savvy cockpit suppliers, flexible offering, modularization and unified platforms will be the future focus of their design. Bosch indicated that he will focus on the common functions below the middle layer in terms of software, adopt a modular approach to bottom-up layer-by-layer iteration, and achieve the substitution and redundancy of chips and applications through modular software and hardware interfaces.
