Acsia teams up with AOX, win Garmin’s contract to develop infotainment software for BMW

Thiruvananthapuram.  In a first, Acsia Technologies, a Kerala based global automotive software company headquartered in Technopark Trivandrum, has been selected as a Software (SW) development provider by AOX Technologies GmbH, a leading Automotive embedded software service provider and Garmin®, a global provider of GPS-enabled products across diverse markets. Acsia teams up with Germany based AOX Technologies to develop and maintain the advanced infotainment systems and instrument cluster for the Tier1 Garmin Ltd. The major software development activities will be done in Acsia’s Trivandrum delivery centre. The company will be expanding its engineering team in Trivandrum and will be placing its engineers in facilities in Germany.

Infotainment is the hardware and software platform designed to deliver information and entertainment including audio and video in vehicles for the front passengers, and as luxury RSE for the rear-seat passengers. At the same time the instrument cluster is fully digitalized which provides the BMW-famous driver experience. Acsia has extensive experience in developing infotainment and connected car production programs for world’s leading Automotive car makers and Tier1 companies. The company leverages this expertise to build world-class infotainment and integrated cockpit systems.

Acsia’s development centres are equipped with TISAX, ASPICE and other mandatory certifications to develop such solutions.

“Acsia has been delivering best- in-class services to their customers across the world. AOX together with Acsia, being a Garmin SW development partner will further strengthen our competencies. We look forward to this association to offer digital cockpits to our customers,” said Craig Puder, Garmin vice president of automotive OEM engineering.

AOX is serving premium Automotive clients. We stand for successful Automotive Software project deliveries which require deep technical Embedded SW understandings, cross-architectural insights for complex systems and functions, professional project management, an high-performance work-culture and full dedication. With-it we also have the same premium expectations to our strategic software suppliers. Acsia has practically demonstrated to meet and exceed our expectations and to be a reliable scaling partner for AOX. Looking forward to successfully deliver this challenging project with a reliable partner like Acsia, “ said Markus Kissendorfer, Managing Director at AOX Connect.

“Acsia was selected through a long evaluation process. We are one of the very few Indian companies to do a major automotive software project for the German carmakers. With this cooperation, we further strengthen our foothold in the global automotive sector. Through the project, the engineers at Acsia and upcoming engineering talents in this part of the world will have the opportunities to work with a world-class brand. Thanks to Garmin and AOX management for choosing Acsia and we look forward to a deeper association in future.” said Jijimon Chandran, CEO of Acsia Technologies.

Acsia has been associating with Kerala Government’s Additional Skill Acquisition Programme (ASAP) in terms of giving inputs to automotive-related courses offered by them. Acsia has already joined hands with many of the tech institutions in the state to set up automotive software competent centres to identify and nurture engineering talent. The new project will be beneficial for engineers in India as Acsia is on a hiring drive for its team expansion.
