What are the central components of the car of the future? Not just an electric motor or environmentally friendly materials. For future mobility and in-car experience, software will play an ever more decisive role. This is clearly demonstrated by the first vehicle prototype that Sony has developed as part of its VISION-S initiative. For trendsetting vehicles of this kind Elektrobit (EB) provides overall integration as well as solutions like the full-fledged cockpit system, including the UX design, the infotainment hardware and software, the digital mirrors as well as the 3D glass, door-to-door display panel. In Sony’s concept car the cluster UX is based on EB GUIDE solution while the center and passenger UX is based on EB’s services for Android Automotive.
