Automotive Tier 1 companies, OEMs and other suppliers are evolving into software-centric businesses focused on speeding the development of connected and shared vehicles, autonomous driving and electrification technologies. Continental, a global leader in the future of mobility, selected DXC Technology and Luxoft as key partners for Continental Automotive Edge (CAEdge), a cloud-based automotive services framework for creating transformative vehicle architectures and software.
The CAEdge modular hardware and software framework, developed in conjunction with Amazon Web Services (AWS), connects vehicles to the cloud, allowing manufacturers and OEMs to develop, test and deploy software, sensor and big data solutions more efficiently and securely. As lead automotive software engineering partners, system integrators and managed service providers for CAEdge, DXC and Luxoft develop solutions to support the operation and development of the CAEdge framework. This includes managing multi-petabytes of ADAS/AD drive data, integrating cloud with in-vehicle ECUs, and using CI/CD toolchains and DevOps work to increase productivity and automation.
As part of CAEdge, DXC Robotic Drive software assets are utilized in reprocessing and simulating scenarios for ADAS/AD development and validation. The software is also used to ingest ADAS R&D data that manufacturers, OEMs and suppliers can leverage to develop market-differentiating advantages.
“DXC and Luxoft are our trusted partners for the development and operation of CAEdge. They proved their ability to provide highly skilled experts and solutions for the broad range of challenges on time. Their flexibility, combined with a supportive and positive attitude, is highly appreciated within our program,” says Sonja Hummel, program manager for Continental CAEdge.
As an AWS Premier Consulting Partner, DXC and Luxoft combine a broad range of services that includes embedded automotive software development and global systems integration capabilities. DXC Robotic Drive Cloud Services on AWS delivers best-in-class services and software components for CAEdge, as well as Continental’s Advanced Driving Support System.
