MIH Consortium unveils open electronic vehicle software platform

The MIH Consortium -- an alliance initiated by Hon Hai Group last year to promote open standards for electric vehicles (EV) -- unveiled its Open EV Software Platform in partnership with major tech firms Arm Ltd., Microsoft Corp. and Trend Micro Inc. on Wednesday.

The open software platform, which makes it possible for automotive developers to create applications with smartphone-like development experience in close partnership with the three strategic partners, was made public at the opening of the three-day 2035 E-Mobility Taiwan trade show.

MIH Chief Executive Officer Jack Cheng (???) said at the opening of the trade show it is hoped that the unveiling of the software platform will facilitate an open ecosystem that promotes collaboration and business opportunities for MIH members to transform and build sustainability in the EV sector.

At the trade show, key software platforms for Software-Defined Vehicles (SDV) were demonstrated, including a security platform, cloud native development platform, advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS)/autonomous driving (AD) development platform, as well as an energy management platform and an EEA and runtime open marketplace.

"To shorten the development cycle and lower barriers to entry, MIH is creating an Open EV Platform for the future of Software-Defined Vehicles," said MIH Chief Technical Officer William Wei (???).

The prototypes of three new electric cars -- the Model C, Model E and Model T developed by Foxtron Vehicles Technologies -- a joint venture between Hon Hai Group and Yulon Motor -- were also showcased at the trade show.

Since its launch in October 2020, 1,977 software or hardware companies from across the world have joined the MIH Consortium.
