The companies jointly launched an ecosystem platform for intelligent cockpit at the conference. Based on their respective products and advantages, the two sides will promote the application of driving/parking integration and build a chip AliOS version baseline.

Leveraging Banma’s AliOS Cyber and SemiDrive’s X9 intelligent cockpit chip, the duo will take the lead in building the industry's first full-stack integrated solution, which can allow cabin, driving, and parking scenarios to share the same set of chips, sensors, and domain controllers. The duo expects to solution to not only improve performance, but also support the software algorithm iteration of OTA function, which can help automakers realize software and hardware decoupling with improved R&D efficiency.
