CE4A-Logos
CE4A - Plattform-Architektur
  • Audi, BMW, Daimler, Porsche and VW establish the task group „Consumer Electronics for Automotive (CE4A)“ under the umbrella of the VDA
  • Conception and development of a mutual reference platform to standardize the interfaces to CE-devices
  • This reference platform makes it possible to carry out the validation process of mobile end devices more efficiently and environmentally friendly. Existing test systems are integrated to ensure a high degree of test automation and reutilization
  • Experts of jambit take over the entire project responsibility: project management, requirements analysis, specification, SW architecture, SW design and implementation, project-specific QM measurements and supplier measurements, change management, risk management
  • Technologies: Java RCP, C++, CORBA, Bluetooth (respectively client and server for AVRCP 1.4, MAP, GAP, SDP, HFP 1.5, SAP, A2DP, PBAP, DUN, PAN, OPP), SOA, OSGi, Python, continuous integration via cruise control, SCons

The highly flexible and modular architecture of the platform enables a sustainable influence of car producers on standardizing interfaces of mobile end devices to the vehicle.
