How cars are set to become computers on wheels
Vehicle technology is profoundly transforming towards fully connected, automated as well as software-defined vehicles. Continental is already driving this development by offering an overarching set of solutions for server-based architectures and being the first supplier who has brought a Body High-Performance Computer (HPC) to the market with Volkswagen’s ID. electric series.
In addition to platforms for domain-focused HPCs for the vehicle cockpit, data management and vehicle connectivity, driving safety and dynamics, or automated driving, Continental is now also offering modular platform solutions for cross-domain HPCs. A first cross-domain HPC from Continental, which hosts functions and features from the body and vehicle control domain, will be integrated into future electric vehicles from a major Chinese vehicle manufacturer.
Continental’s architecture and networking portfolio is extended by offering scalable zone controller solutions with growing cross-domain capabilities. Zone Control Units (ZCUs) are in physical zones in the vicinity of sensors and actuators, act as a communication gateway, provide smart power distribution and ensure the reliable execution of vehicle functions. With Continental’s modular platform solutions, vehicle manufacturers can choose the best fit for their future vehicle architectures.
Continental will also demonstrate how software and powerful IT infrastructure based on the Continental Automotive Edge Framework enable new functions and are transforming mobility. This modular hardware and software platform connects the vehicle to the cloud and features numerous options to develop, supply and maintain software-intensive system functions. This will allow drivers to integrate the functions they want going forward during the entire service life of their vehicle by downloading quick and convenient software updates.
