The EB/NXP platform combines the EB robinos software framework with NXP’s BlueBox Automated Drive Development Platform, making it easier for automakers to develop automated driving features.
Elektrobit, a developer of embedded and connected technology solutions for the automotive industry, and NXP Semiconductors a supplier of automotive semiconductor solutions, announced a collaboration to deliver a powerful new development platform that integrates the NXP BlueBox Automated Drive Development Platform and Elektrobit’s EB robinos software framework for highly automated driving systems. This joint solution will make it easier for automakers to develop highly automated driving functionalities.
Automakers face significant hurdles in the quest to bring self-driving applications to market efficiently. Solutions to problems — such as how to route multiple streams of automotive sensors data quickly and reliably, how to tackle complex software development in-house and how to create differentiation — are in high demand. These challenges were top-of-mind when long-time partners EB and NXP developed the combined hardware-software solution, which delivers unique benefits to carmakers.
