      Smart Cockpit HPC: How Continental integrates instrumentation, entertainment and driver assistance functions in a truly forward-looking way

      • Cost-optimized Smart Cockpit HPC solution without limiting the user experience
      • Fast time to market with pre-configured Cockpit HPC system in only 18 months


      With the Smart Cockpit HPC, Continental has expanded its product portfolio with a new high-performance computer (HPC) for vehicles. The solution impresses with ideally adapted system performance for a pre-integrated function set. The Smart Cockpit HPC primarily targets the balance between user experience, system performance, cost and short development time.

      This approach enables the vehicle manufacturer, together with Continental, to minimize costs and time spent in the development phase for all stakeholders. Pre-integrated state-of-the-art driver assistance, instrumentation and infotainment functions can minimize hardware costs in the cockpit area. The bottom line is a fast time to market - from order to start of production in 18 months.

      The Smart Cockpit HPC can control up to two displays in the cockpit as standard. The necessary plug-in connections can be adapted to the requirements of the vehicle manufacturer. In addition, head-up displays can also be controlled by the Smart Cockpit HPC.
