NXP invests in the future automotive

NXP has announced that it is to collaborate with Elektrobit (EB) on a new platform for highly automated driving, and extends its partnership with HARMAN to speed up time-to-market for connected car solutions.

The new development platform integrates the NXP BlueBox Automated Drive Development Platform and Elektrobit’s EB robinos software framework for highly automated driving systems. This joint solution is said to make it easier for automakers to develop highly automated driving functionalities.

Applications can be run on the hardware via the EB robinos open interface specification. The BlueBox is a collection of processing and support logic that can handle the real-time processing and safety requirements of automated driving. EB robinos software framework routes the streams of complex sensor data to the BlueBox engine, where hardware and software fuse them to create a complete 360° world model around the vehicle.

NXP is also extending its 15-year collaboration with HARMAN International – a subsidiary of Samsung Electronics – to speed up time-to-market for connected car solutions.

“HARMAN and NXP share the vision that to win in the connected car market, three things matter: accelerating the pace of silicon innovation based on software-defined radio; scalable compute solutions; and zero defect quality levels. We are very proud to work with HARMAN, a true leader in automotive and connected cars,” said Kurt Sievers, general manager of NXP Automotive.

To tackle infotainment of the future, NXP and HARMAN will work on emerging technology areas, including over-the-air updates, secure V2X communication and software-defined radio. The two companies will also expand their partnership in technologies supporting the connected in-car experience, including tuners, digital signal processors, amplifiers and applications processors.
