Automakers face significant hurdles in the quest to bring self-driving applications to market efficiently. Solutions to problems — such as how to route multiple streams of automotive sensors data quickly and reliably, how to tackle complex software development in-house and how to create differentiation — are in high demand. These challenges were top-of-mind when long-time partners EB and NXP developed the combined hardware-software solution, which delivers unique benefits to carmakers.

“Developing automated vehicle functions is very challenging for many reasons. One of the most challenging tasks for automated vehicle development is interfacing software components with your target platform. The availability of EB robinos for NXP’s BlueBox means that applications can be run on the hardware via the EB robinos open interface specification. This saves time and enables a proper buildup of functionality,” said Phil Magney, founder and principal advisor at
“Automakers working at the forefront of autonomous development are faced with increased complexity, greater competition and very challenging timelines,” said Martin Schleicher, executive vice president strategy and partnerships at EB. “Together, NXP and EB are providing automakers with a powerful, competitive advantage, allowing them to dramatically accelerate the development of highly automated driving features, with a critical emphasis on the highest levels of functional safety.”
“NXP’s safe compute engine, BlueBox, and EB robinos software framework are a perfect match,” said Davide Santo, Autonomous Platform Architect, NXP Automotive. “They combine two very powerful building blocks for enabling self-driving robots on wheels. This engagement is part of NXP’s strategy to deliver open platform support. We are very pleased to see this solution now being deployed, and look forward to distributing EB robinos in the near future as part of our NXP BlueBox.”
