Evolving Automotive Infotainment
Automakers are designing vehicle cockpits with an increasing number of advanced features influenced by the wide array of new technologies used by consumers daily. In addition, new advanced safety features are being added that are essential for achieving the goal of autonomous vehicles. The cockpit of the future cockpit requires advanced processing capabilities to meet consumer demands for connectivity, safety, and future mobility.
For insight into the features consumers are looking forward to in new vehicles and what technologies are required to support these features, read our In-Vehicle Infotainment report from Strategy Analytics.
Then, Now and the Future of the Car Cockpit
For decades, Arm architecture has been a key enabler of automotive technology, with more than 85 percent of infotainment systems and many under-the-hood applications powered by Arm-based chips. To highlight how dramatically cockpit technology has changed in the past few decades, here’s an overview of technology hotspots in cockpits of the past, present, and future.

UI designers and software developers often have to sacrifice important features or performance to achieve a visually appealing UI. To optimize user experience in the design of instrument clusters, head-up displays, infotainment, rear seat entertainment, and connected car mobile apps, they need a powerful UI tool.
Cortex-A65AE is Arm's first multithreaded AE Cortex-A CPU that delivers the highest levels of safety with Dual Core Lock-Step (DCLS). It can scale up to eight cores in a single cluster and supports Split-Lock for mixed-criticality automotive applications.
Brings the always-on ease of mobile to large-screen compute, delivering laptop-class performance with mobile efficiency. A significant step forward for mobile computing, whether on a smartphone or laptop.
The Cortex-A55 can be implemented as a “LITTLE” CPU to the Cortex-A7x series with DynamIQ big.LITTLE, providing the flexibility to balance performance with power efficiency.
Designed to bring premium visual experiences to the ever-growing mainstream mobile market. The Mali-G52 provides heightened machine learning capability for smart and essential applications.
