Germany’s Continental has unveiled a new online platform that automates and standardizes software development and integration into the vehicle.
The Continental Cooperation Portal offers a solution for vehicle manufacturers to integrate the growing amount of software into future vehicle generations.
Continental says the portal helps carmakers and suppliers save time and money in the vehicle development process; reducing costs for all involved parties, and increasing software quality.
Johann Hiebl, head of Continental’s Connected Car Networking business unit, says: “The importance of software for vehicles is rising at a rapid pace. By developing the Continental Cooperation Portal, we have created a tool for implementing software and services from a wide range of providers in vehicle servers. As a system integrator and strategic partner, we are working with manufacturers to meet the challenges of the increasing complexity of software integration in modern vehicles.”
Continental says the portal can be individually customized for each software project.
