Connected Vehicle

Build connected vehicles for tomorrow

To adopt the latest multimedia and connectivity technologies, vehicle manufacturers must stay agile and efficient with their implementation methods. We offer a range of software that makes the connected vehicle engineering challenge easier, including frameworks for digital audio and video, telematics, navigation, wireless communications and automotive diagnostic tools.

Aricent’s connected vehicle services enable users to remain connected to the external world, while at the same time not compromising on road safety. Our engineers also build automobile software for advanced driver assistance systems, gesture control, vehicle-to-vehicle communication and vehicle-to-infrastructure communication.
