Cockpit Controller

Cockpit Controller

The increased demand in cloud and in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) functions lead to a revolution in the E/E design towards server- and service-based architectures. The Continental Engineering Services (CES) Cockpit Controller is our answer to the demand for high performance human machine interface (HMI) and infotainment for modern vehicle cockpits. It carries predefined functions and applications but also acts as a platform for third-party software and services. This allows for numerous possibilities including the use of open-source software and thus also for new business models.


High Integration​ – High Performance​ – Future-proof

  • Ready for Domain-based vehicle architectures​
  • Ready for new regulations on cyber security and SW updates​
