Sibros & Marelli Collaboration to Focus on OTA Solutions for Next-Gen Vehicle Cockpits

During an announcement at CES 2023 in Las Vegas, Sibros said it would deploy its over-the-air software and data management solutions on Marelli’s next-generation Cockpit Domain Controller for automotive OEMs. According to a press release, Sibros will enable remote software management and connected data logging on the Marelli MInD-Xp.

“Marelli has raised the bar to a new high with its next-generation digital cockpit that runs multiple in-cabin functions from a single powerful platform,” said Hemant Sikaria, CEO and co-founder of Sibros. “By combining Sibros’ technology with Marelli, we’re thrilled to provide OEMs a better way to improve product quality by making meaningful data and software updates work together from a future-ready digital cockpit solution.”

MInD-Xp Platform

As described by Marelli, the MInD-Xp provides a single platform and domain control unit to run multiple guest operating systems and in-cabin functions. These functions include infotainment, driver assistance systems, and heads-up displays; all meant to enhance driver and occupant experiences. “Marelli combines innovative in-house technologies with strong partner solutions to deliver scalable and modular solutions that exceed the demands of modern software-defined vehicle architectures and experiences,” said Ravi Tallapragada, President of Electronic Systems at Marelli.

Sibros will deploy its Deep Logger and Deep Updater on the Marelli cockpit. Doing so will facilitate live vehicle data logging, software configuration management, over-the-air updates for in-cabin features, plus all other downstream ECUs and controllers operating in vehicles using MInD-Xp.

Potential Benefits

The companies said the solution would unlock a range of benefits, including fleet-wide transparency into all software builds, faster development times, lower end-of-line testing costs, predictive fault detection for recall avoidance and mitigation, and dealer-led or direct-to-customer virtual maintenance and services. “We look forward to helping our OEM customers gain more value from our next-generation cockpit platform with the unique approach Sibros offers for advanced connected vehicle software and data management,” Tallapragada added.
