The best of both worlds: front and back end solutions for automotive infotainment and connectivity

Expleo operates at the convergence of human machine interface, infotainment, instrumentation, connectivity and backend services.

Due to rapid progress in digital technologies, the lines are rapidly blurring between our mobile devices, homes and the smart cars we use to link them. Advances in human machine interface and in-car infotainment are helping to create a seamless digital experience through the day, powered by innovations in instrumentation, connectivity and backend services.

Still in many cases the front end and back end are developed separately, which does not lead automatically to the most promising digital solution. Expleo is using end-to-end knowledge to offer clients the best of both worlds, by operating at the convergence of human machine interface, infotainment, instrumentation connectivity and backend services.

You have reached your destination

Navigation is a good example. In the old days, the onboard system was never updated and the user interface quickly felt dated. With the emergence of server-based systems, the service improved, but only if you had access to a reliable internet connection. Enter a tunnel and the service stalled. Our wider perspective allows our Tier1 and OEM clients to look at navigation as a holistic ecosystem.

With Expleo as partner, you will gain short time-to-market through agile development process, as well as cost benefits through standard compliance developments for Ethernet, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, NFC, USB and functions (phone, audio streaming, video, music, speech recognition). Specific expert access is provided by our centre of competence, e.g. in automotive security.

End-to-end services

Our services for infotainment functions include functional design, requirements engineering, model-based software development and automated end-to-end validation. We work with clients on a wide variety of connected services and technologies, such as online services, telephony, personalisation & apps, navigation (e.g. China), CWP (Customer Web Portal, or UX and HMI. We are experts for Car Play, Android Auto, Mirror Link, Bluetooth, and ensure the efficient integration of multimedia devices and mobile phones, including security and data privacy concepts to prevent manipulation. We also provide end-to-end validation of components, ECUs, OCUs, as well as for HMI and eCall, middleware and backend. Global test houses for end-to-end testing of connectivity systems offer added value.

In addition we develop solutions for instrumentation (dashboard, switches, haptic control elements, display and keys). Also concepts, rollout, training, technical support in after sales are part of our portfolio.
