AUTOMOTIVE ELECTRONICS
AND INFOTAINMENT

Design & development of futuristic embedded sub-systems for ADAS, in-vehicle Infotainment and Telematics systems

AUTOMOTIVE ELECTRONICS

Over the past couple of decades, the automotive electronics industry has been witnessing a series of transformation by constantly adopting more and more digital technologies. Currently, Automotive electronics are expected to constitute near a third of the total cost of the entire car. Electronics designed for Automotive applications and in-vehicle infotainment are subjected to stringent environmental tests as they are exposed to extreme temperature ranges and driving conditions.

Electronic systems have augmented and replaced mechanical and electromechanical systems. From Digital Radio and Bluetooth enabled Hands-free communication, the Automotive Electronics Industry has been steadily moving towards advanced in-vehicle infotainment and ADAS solutions like integrated cockpit, in-vehicle connectivity, driver monitoring systems, voice-based controls, automatic parking, adaptive cruise control, navigation systems, pedestrian detection/avoidance, lane departure warning/correction, traffic sign recognition, automatic emergency braking, blind spot detection, etc.

In-vehicle Infotainment platforms not only provide multimedia, audio and video entertainment, climate control functions, and smartphone integration but also include best-in-class navigation solutions. Today, these real-time in-vehicle infotainment devices are finding its way to trains, trolley buses, trams, buses, boats, and aircrafts among others. Innovative in-vehicle infotainment and in-flight entertainment solutions keep the users connected, informed and entertained while on the move.

ADAS

Advanced Driver Assistant Systems [ADAS] and Driver Monitoring Systems [DMS] play important roles in Passenger safety. Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) take some of the decision-making processes away from the humans. Various statistics on vehicle accidents indicate a high ratio of error in driver judgment. The goal of ADAS is to aid drivers to drive more efficiently and safely. The increasing density of vehicles on road and demand for safety has pushed Automotive OEMs to build intelligent Automotive Electronics solutions.

Automotive Solutions

In addition to Automotive Electronics Design Services and in-vehicle Infotainment, Mistral offers a range of advanced Automotive Electronics solutions like mmWave Radar Modules and the AI based Sensor Fusion platforms. Built around TI’s AWR1843 SoC and NVIDIA Jetson Xavier NX SoM, the Sensor Fusion platforms integrate Radars, camera and advanced ADAS & Driver monitoring applications.

Mistral has been in the forefront aiding leading OEMs and Tier 1 automotive suppliers to build revolutionary automotive electronics solutions. Our automotive electronic solutions and in-vehicle infotainment designs have been adapted and integrated by leading automotive companies in Europe, USA and Australia.
