COVER STORY
Marelli focused on the idea of the
" Software-Defined Interior " at CES 2024, including
a zonal architecture CCU powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon Cockpit Platform.
experience. " Marelli uses Qualcomm's Snapdragon
Cockpit Platform to run a Central Computing Unit
(CCU) and up to four Zone Control Units (ZCUs). The
zonal architecture replaces fixed analog interfaces
with displays and content that can change over time,
including with AI.
Marelli brought SDV components to CES, including
an updated version of its panorama HUD with a 3D
hologram virtual assistant, better driver monitoring
and hidden screens. RTI showed off updates to its
Connext Drive middleware communication framework
that is already used by over two dozen OEMs to run
zonal, ADAS and telematics architectures in their
SDVs. The platform-independent Connext Drive works
with AUTOSAR Classic, AUTOSAR Adaptive and ROS 2
environments and is ISO26262 ASIL-D certified.
Stradvision said its next-generation 3D Perception
Network has been improved with increased deep
learning and reduced post-processing code complexity.
The scalable 3D Perception Network has a 30%
decrease in ARM resource usage. This optimization is a
boon for the SDV era, Stradvision said, because it decreases
CPU usage for broader system operations
while increasing the Neural Processing Unit (NPU) utilization
for ADAS functions.
Sibros offered demos of its Deep Connected
Platform that will power " the future of software-defined
mobility, " the company said. MotorTrend even
hosted an SDV Innovator Awards Gala event during
CES 2024.

SDVs: open-source options, new updaters
and optimized screens
Open-source software in SDVs was also a topic at CES this year.
Elektrobit demonstrated its EB corbos Linux - built on Ubuntu software
in its demo of an Interactive framework designed to make
Automotive Operating System projects less complex and more secure.
AlixPartners's SDV survey found that more than half of automakers
favor using proprietary software for their SDVs for more differentiation
and security, even if it costs more than open-source solutions.
The survey found that tech firms and automotive Tier-1s prefer a
mixed strategy that allows them to use proprietary software for an
SDV's core systems.
LG Display brought its next-generation automotive displays optimized
for SDVs to CES. These advanced screens were designed to
cover a vehicle's dashboard and can be thin and flexible (using
P-OLED technology) or more traditionally strong and unbending at a
lower cost (Advanced Thin OLED). LG Display also introduced a
Switchable Privacy Mode (SPM) for its screens, a technology that
automatically adjusts the viewing angle so the driver can't see it
when a passenger fires up a movie or video game on a screen.
Meanwhile, LG Electronics used CES to demonstrate a new crossdomain
platform developed in collaboration with Magna. In 2023, LG
and Magna introduced a cross-domain cockpit computing system
that was integrated into a single System on Chip (SoC). LG said the
module supports multiple in-vehicle infotainment systems, and
ADAS/AD domain integration provides a benefit to SDVs as more and
more of a vehicle's electronic architecture gets consolidated.
Automotive software company Sonatus used CES to demonstrate
ways that SDVs could change what it's like to move by car by offering
