Driven by AI & connectivity, the cockpit is gradually transforming from a driving space to a new kind of living space with software definition setting the tone. Drivers expect intelligent cockpits to match the HMI level they experience with their mobile phones. EB’s cockpit system service is a fully-fledged offering that closely works with car makers to design, create, and build the entire cockpit. It supports car makers in the development of next-gen, digital cockpits from specification to design & conception, to production engineering & the integration of hardware, software, and third-party apps.

These state-of-the-art, digital cockpits come with integrated Google Automotive Services (GAS), multiple speech assistants, and driver monitoring or digital mirrors systems. Additional system components such as premium 3D cover glass solutions for stunning interior displays, or pillar-to-pillar display panels and rear seat infotainment solutions will leave everyone in the car truly delighted.
