DENSO Works with Qualcomm to Develop Next-Generation Cockpit Systems


Reading time ( words)

DENSO Corporation and Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., a subsidiary of Qualcomm Incorporated, today announced the companies’ joint efforts in developing next-generation cockpit systems.

In recent years, the amount of information provided by a vehicle to the driver has increased due to advanced driver assistance functions using cameras and sensors, as well as various entertainment functions. With these opportunities for vehicle-driver communication, human-machine interfaces (HMI*1) play a key role in providing updates to drivers swiftly, effectively and safely, and in a way that does not cause distraction. In doing so, these interfaces must account for the driving situation around the vehicle and the driver’s status to ensure the most important information is communicated at precisely the right time. It is a process made possible by multiple HMI products working simultaneously, such as the instrument cluster, in-vehicle multimedia, and Head-Up Display.

Working with Qualcomm Technologies, DENSO aims to develop an architecture*2 for systems based on DENSO’s Harmony Core*3 integrated cockpit system that can coordinate with external cloud services and new HMI products, which enables car connectivity and advanced safety features like driver status monitoring, driver and passenger authentication, and improved display operability.

DENSO will improve the user-friendliness of integrated cockpit systems and in-vehicle infotainment products and develop in-vehicle solution technologies for these systems by utilizing the technologies and know-how refined in the development of products.

*1 HMI: Human Machine Interface. It enables the exchange of information between the driver and the vehicle.

*2 Architecture: Basic design of software or hardware

*3 Harmony Core: The integrated cockpit system uses a single microcomputer to coordinate and control HMI products running different OSs.

What’s Coming in 3D Printing Technology in 2018

12/27/2017 | Cullen Hilkene, 3Diligent
First, the arrival of extrusion metal printing. Today's extrusion printers are the most prevalent and, arguably, user-friendly 3D Printers in the market. Now, after years of there being zero metal extrusion printers, there will be two in the new year from Desktop Metal and Markforged. These technologies promise new materials and a higher degree of user friendliness for metal printing.

Wearable Tech Back to a Healthy Development Pace

02/11/2015 | Reed Exhibitions
Wearable tech was a major sensation in 2014. The wearable tech industry generated extensive interest among media, investors, start-ups, wearable tech enthusiasts, technology leaders and trade fairs. Many events were held around wearable products and industry last year. The trend for early 2015 has seen the industry fall back into a healthy developmental pace. Investors are keen to see a return on their capital injections and former start-ups are now reaching maturity.
