GlobalLogic, a Hitachi Group Company and digital engineering leader, has confirmed it is establishing a new automotive-centric software facility in Poland as part of its continued efforts to enable car manufacturers worldwide to develop software-defined vehicles (SDVs).
The initiative was prompted by its ongoing collaboration with Stellantis as the global automaker and mobility provider advances its platform for SDVs. The companies’ new partnership phase enables Stellantis to maximise its ability to evolve and deliver customisable open automotive platforms.
According to a recent report from Goldman Sachs, SDVs will determine who has the competitive edge in the auto industry. Next-generation vehicles rely on software to decrease hardware dependencies in ways that better the whole consumer experience, from driving to maintenance.
Stellantis, a leading global automaker and mobility provider, is deploying next-generation technology platforms that build on existing connected vehicle capabilities to transform how customers interact with their vehicles. This transformation will move Stellantis’ vehicles to an open software-defined platform that seamlessly integrates with customers’ digital lives and greatly expands the options customers have, to add innovative features and services via regular over-the-air (OTA) updates keeping vehicles updated years after they have been built.
“As newer digital technologies become available, the infrastructure around and inside our cars should adapt to meet driver expectations,” said Tara Vatcher, Senior Vice President, Software Architecture and Development, Stellantis. “Therefore, it’s important to us that we work with an engineering partner that is dialled into the cutting edge of what’s possible with automotive solutions.”Click below to share this article
