Podcast #52 – Digital Cockpit to Drive Future Connected Car Experiences

Modern cars now feature an array of advanced digital technologies such as ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) that offer things like lane assist, adaptive cruise control, collision avoidance, and more. And as things progress towards the next level of autonomous driving, the digital cockpit will play a crucial role in unlocking future connected car experiences. Besides offering personalized experiences and seamless connectivity to drivers and passengers, a digital cockpit will also enhance driver safety.

But who are the key players in the automotive industry that are offering the technology stack to power these new experiences? What does Qualcomm’s announcement of its Digital Chassis mean for automakers? And lastly, what are EV (electric vehicle) makers doing to improve range, build more fast-charging stations, and integrate new battery chemistries?

In the latest episode of ‘The Counterpoint Podcast’, host Maurice Klaehne is joined by analysts Soumen Mandal and Mohit Sharma for an insightful discussion on autonomous and electric vehicles (EVs). The discussion also touches on connected cars, touchscreen infotainment systems with guided maps, ADAS, CES 2022 announcements, and more. At the end of the podcast, Soumen and Mohit also talk about the key trends they are seeing in the automotive industry.
