The automotive industry is undergoing a major transition and redefining the vehicle development process and Mazout is front-ending this transition . To include numerous technologies tied to the concept of connected, autonomous, shared, and electric (CASE) mobility, Mazout has chosen to adopt the software-defined vehicle (SDV) development approach. With the SDV approach, OEMs can extend features and function that they can update throughout the vehicle life cycle, which provides opportunities for recurring and sustainable revenue.
To achieve an SDV, we are redesigning vehicle electrical/electronic (EE) architecture by consolidating functions in domains and zones. We are focusing on software development, and specifically in a base software platform, that will enable them to extend software-driven features and functions called the vehicle operating system (OS).
