General Motors Unveils All-New Electronic Platform
May 20, 2019
Acting on its goal of winning by scoring all zeroes General Motors Corp. today unveiled a new electronic platform that will be the underpinnings for its next generation of vehicles.
GM CEO Mary Barra has said the company’s vision of the future is one with “zero crashes, zero emissions and zero congestion” and is being manifested by the company’s focus on developing electric and autonomous vehicles internally and through partnerships.
This new platform is another step towards turning that vision into reality, said GM President Mark Reuss.
“The critical role of software and its importance to our vehicles, both now and for years to come, cannot be overstated,” said Reuss in a written statement. “Our new digital vehicle platform and its eventual successors will underpin all our future innovations across a wide range of technological advancements, including EVs and expanded automated driving.”
Specifically, the platform powers an electronic system capable of managing up to 4.5 terabytes of data processing power per hour--a fivefold increase over GM’s current electronic architecture, the company said.
