KARLSRUHE, Germany, June 24, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sachin Lawande, president and CEO of Visteon Corporation (NASDAQ: VC), the market leader in the fast-growing cockpit domain controller segment, will deliver a keynote on a centralized computing solution that is fully scalable to Level 2-5 autonomous driving as part of the Automobil-Elektronik Kongress agenda for autonomous mobility. Lawande’s presentation will take place at 9 a.m. CET on June 26 at the Forum am Schlosspark in Ludwigsburg, Germany.

The DriveCore™ platform’s modular and flexible approach is based on an open hardware and software platform that allows automakers, developers and technology suppliers to collaborate on innovations for assisted and autonomous driving. Its scalable, modular approach is designed to meet all levels of automation – providing an advantage over currently available offerings.

Visteon, a global leader in cockpit electronics, will exhibit DriveCore™ and its three core elements at Booth #33:

  • DriveCore™ Compute: a scalable modular hardware platform for assisted and autonomous driving
  • DriveCore™ Runtime: ASIL-B rated middleware with a specially developed communications layer for the exchange of large amounts of data in real time and open interfaces for easy integration of software components
  • DriveCore™ Studio: a software development kit with record and replay capabilities for test data, which facilitates algorithm development and an open development process through Cloud connectivity.

Based on these three components, DriveCore platform enables a continuous development process for assisted and autonomous driving functions, from algorithm growth to testing of components and systems in the vehicle – on the test bed or in simulations – and enables over-the-air updates of hardware components. The DriveCore platform is the only solution for driver assistance systems and autonomous driving functions offering this holistic approach to system development.

The International Automobil-Elektronik Kongress, taking place, is an annual forum for senior automotive executives to discuss automotive megatrends and new technology developments.
