Modular Connectivity for Modern Information and Entertainment Services

Modern digital cockpit (infotainment) platforms have become an integral element of the software-defined vehicle era. Driven by consumer demand, new business models now require vehicle information and entertainment architectures to be flexible, scalable, compatible and upgradable on different hardware components, while also fulfilling key technical and safety requirements.

Modern vehicles often include new functionalities such as monitoring, prediction and autonomous functions which improve driving experience by connecting to systems of smart devices. This in turn, increases the safety and cybersecurity requirements. 

To meet these evolving requirements, pre-integrated platforms can reduce risk and accelerate time-to-market delivery. 

Connext Drive® is the data-centric software framework that is production-proven to manage digital cockpit modularity. Based on the open Data Distribution Service (DDS™) standard, it rapidly integrates new and evolving platforms into modern infotainment systems including real-time WAN transport for teleoperations support.
