High Performance Computer Smart Cockpit

Continental and Google

  • Continental and Google Cloud equip cars with generative artificial intelligence and create intuitive user experience for drivers
  • The two companies each bring their respective expertise to the partnership, namely in automotive, software, artificial intelligence and cloud computing
  • The Google AI-based voice assistant integrated within a smart cockpit system allows drivers to interact with their car in a natural dialogue
  • No matter if drivers for example need help finding the right tire pressure when the car is fully loaded or want to know more about local places of interest on their destination or along their route when they are on vacation, the generative AI can compile the required information and answer the drivers’ questions.


  • Virtual Smart Cockpit HPC: shortens development time and helps to identify issues earlier in the development cycle
  • Simulation of applications and Electronic Control Unit system performance independent of having the real hardware available
  • Decoupling of hardware and software decisions
  • Simulation of digital feature performance on the digital twin of hardware subsystems
  • Continuous release of applications that customize and enhance the driver experience
