The Japan-based electronics company Panasonic has acquired all the outstanding shares of the Germany based automotive embedded software company OpenSynergy. This acquisition helps Panasonic to strengthen its position in automotive business which is a high growth area, particularly in the areas of advanced driving assistance systems (ADAS).
OpenSynergy is specialised in embedded automotive software and the provider of COQOS Software Development Kit (COQOS SDK). COQOS SDK helps engineers to create Android and Linux operating system based telematics and infotainment systems specific to automotive applications.
Panasonic explains, “A current cockpit system is controlled by two different systems, multimedia functions like navigation and audio, and driver support functions like warning signals on head-up display. To integrate such different functions going forward, and provide a better and intuitively easier driving support, system integration needs to be achieved from the operating system level.”
“OpenSynergy’s software technologies enable multiple different operating systems to be integrated into one system. These technologies make it possible to realise a next-generation cockpit system where multimedia and driver support functions are integrated.” stated by Panasonic.
