Yu Fang, CTO and Co-Founder of Sonatus, recently provided Embedded Computing Design with valuable insight on the value of starting with a service oriented architecture to build the car of tomorrow—Software-Defined vehicles.
“Drivers will expect the freedom to add and consume new capabilities or content at will, just as they do with their mobile phone or tablet today. And automakers will increasingly fix vehicle defects, optimize performance, and even add new features and functions - that the vehicle’s original designers might never have envisioned – throughout vehicles’ lives.”
Sonatus helps automakers build dynamic software-defined vehicles that can evolve and adapt over their entire lifetimes through code-less updates that don’t require new software. Leveraging extensive software-defined and automotive expertise, the company compresses decades of digital innovation into scalable vehicle and cloud software solutions, empowering OEMs to innovate faster, reduce complexity and costs, and become more agile. Sonatus’ award-winning Digital Dynamics™ platform is currently in-market in Hyundai, Kia, and Genesis, and will be on the road in millions more vehicles by 2023. The company is backed by world-class automotive, technology, and venture investors including Hyundai Motor Group’s Kia Corporation, LG Electronics, Marvell, SAIC Capital, Translink Capital, UMC Capital, and Wanxiang Group Company. The company is headquartered in Sunnyvale, CA, with offices in Detroit, MI, and Seoul, Korea.
