LG joins SOAFEE as 9th governing member for SDV technology

SEOUL, Dec. 7, 2023 — LG Electronics (LG) announced it has become the ninth governing body member of Scalable Open Architecture for Embedded Edge (SOAFEE) – a global consultative body leading the development of software-defined vehicle (SDV) technology and other future mobility solutions – which now has a membership of more than 100 companies.

The SOAFEE initiative was founded by Arm and other industry leaders. It is an industry-led Special Interest Group (SIG) consisting of global automakers, semiconductor suppliers, open-source and independent software vendors, and cloud technology leaders. The initiative aims to deliver a cloud-native architecture enhanced for mixed-criticality automotive applications. It also provides corresponding open-source reference implementations to enable commercial and non-commercial offerings. LG is joining the SOAFEE SIG Governing Body whose other members include Arm, AWS, Bosch, CARIAD, Continental, Red Hat and SUSE.

LG has been an active participant in SOAFEE since March 2022. It became a voting member of the SOAFEE SIG. The company’s expertise and ongoing contributions to the advancement of SDV and related technologies have gained recognition. Now, it takes on a bigger role as a key member of the governing body.

LG is a noted future mobility innovator. The company has earned high praise for discovering new usage scenarios for cloud native technology within the driving environment. Additionally, LG conducts technology verification research that moves the automotive sector closer to the realization of the SDV. Moreover, LG aims to build on its groundbreaking work. The company seeks to solidify its technological leadership through broadening collaboration with other global companies seeking to establish a robust SDV ecosystem.

At IAA Mobility 2023 in Munich, Germany, this September, LG presented its views on the impact the SDV will have on future mobility. The company also highlighted how it is actively preparing for this new era in driving technology. Furthermore, the company’s strength lies in in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) systems, allowing it to develop diverse solutions. These solutions encompass areas such as vehicle computing, vehicle communications, and vehicle operating systems. They are expected to be in high demand as the SDV market continues to evolve and grow.

“LG is very excited to join the SOAFEE Governing Body. The company looks forward to collaborating with other industry-leading companies to pioneer SDV technology,” said Eun Seok-hyun, president of LG Vehicle component Solutions Company. “LG has secured competitiveness in the areas of infotainment, telematics, and ADAS in preparation for the SDV era. Moreover, the company plans to actively involve itself in establishing relevant industry standards in the future..”
