OAKLAND, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–mimik Technology Inc. announced that it will be s preferred supplier for Marelli’s software-defined vehicle (SDV) solutions stack. Marelli would be integrating mimik’s patented Hybrid Edge Cloud (HEC) platform.
mimik provides a continuous runtime environment via its HEC platform. It facilitates the development, deployment, and management of workloads across various smart devices, including automotive computing devices. Moreover, by empowering each computing device within the vehicle and the surrounding intelligent ecosystem to function as a cloud server through its innovative software, mimik enhances performance, scalability. The device reduced the software’s total cost of ownership (TCO). This also reduces the carbon footprint and enables new opportunities for connected vehicle experiences.
Marelli has already made significant strides in the SDV field, thanks to focused investments. The exploration of numerous business opportunities, driven by a passion for innovation. Marelli has developed a unique software platform to support OEMs to transition to SDV. Furthermore, the platform includes the cabin digital twin and a broad catalogue of SaaP (Service as a Product) applications. Moreover, this software solution, for automotive-grade applications, uses containerized microservices to decouple hardware and software. It is a key pillar for SDV, and unlocking significant optimization opportunities for software development, testing, and validation activities.
“We are delighted to integrate mimik’s platform into our development stack,” shared Nate Sladek, VP Strategy and Product Management at Marelli’s Electronic Systems division. “This allows Marelli, software platform to fully exploit the benefits of SDV. Marellis offer to OEMs future-proof solutions for operating systems design and hybrid edge cloud. Moreover, this collaboration will allow us to construct a secure and scalable platform for connected vehicles. This accelerated the adoption of SDV architectures.
Marelli can create software and deploy it across any hardware and operating system within vehicles. To do this, Marelli integrates mimik’s HEC platform. The HEC platform enables the microservice containerization. This strategic move enhances not only performance, scalability, and security but it also significantly reduces the total cost of ownership (TCO) of the software, ultimately contributing to a more sustainable and interconnected mobility ecosystem.
Sam Armani, SVP of mimik, expressed enthusiasm about the collaboration, stating, “We are excited to see Marelli adopt our Hybrid Edge Cloud platform, a decision that solidifies their position as a trusted innovator in the automotive industry. As a result of this integration, they will create innovative solutions that are set to revolutionize the automotive sector. In addition, we are shaping the future of software-defined vehicles and promoting the growth of intelligent, connected mobility.”
The collaboration between mimik and Marelli holds the potential to redefine the automotive industry, enabling the development of novel use cases and transforming our interaction with vehicles. Moreover, it opens avenues for vehicle hyper-personalization, real-time decision-making, usage-based insurance, predictive maintenance, and more. As the rise of electric and autonomous vehicles necessitates secure and efficient software management, this strategic decision by Marelli to incorporate mimik’s technology is a vital move.
