L&T Technology Services (LTTS), a provider of digital engineering and R&D services, has collaborated with automotive manufacturer Marelli to transform automotive infotainment and information cluster design using Marelli’s digital twin solutions. The partnership aims to improve automotive software development processes and reduce prototype costs for software-defined vehicles.
Marelli’s digital twin, developed with support from LTTS and using Amazon Web Services (AWS), acts as a virtual replica of the car’s entire electric-electronic architecture. The replica includes information clusters, infotainment systems, zone control units and body components.
Powered by the Snapdragon Cockpit Platform from Qualcomm Technologies and LTTS’s cloud-based virtualization solutions, the digital twin is claimed to reduce software development time by up to 70% and prototype costs by up to 30%.
“We are excited to join forces with LTTS in our ongoing efforts to enhance our digital twin,” said Roberto Secchi, head of software platform and DevOps in Marelli’s Electronic Systems division.
Abhishek Sinha, COO and board member at LTTS, added, “We are thrilled to embark on a strategic collaboration with Marelli, leveraging the vast capabilities of software-defined mobility, digital cockpit systems and connected cars to bolster Marelli’s vision to revolutionize the future of mobility.
“This partnership is not only catalyzing unparalleled efficiencies in automotive software development but also spearheading the future of automotive infotainment through our digital twin offerings.”
