The 2020 Aston Martin DB11 quietly sources its V8 engine from Mercedes

  • When Ford dropped Aston Martin in 2007, the luxury carmaker pivoted to keep up engine innovation and design, resulting in a technical partnership with Mercedes-AMG to source the eight-cylinder engine for the 2020 Aston Martin DB11 V8. 
  • While the DB11’s high-income segment might raise concerns about individuality, Aston Martin reprogrammed the motor’s computer controls, changed its intake, and massaged the exhaust to maintain its distinct sound.
  • With former AMG boss Tobias Moer having replaced CEO Andy Palmer earlier this year, the Gaydon, UK-based auto company hopes to climb out of its sales slump.

It’s far more complicated, and more expensive, to manufacture a modern automobile than most of us could ever imagine. This is doubly true for those scratching out an existence at the ultra-luxury margins of the industry, where development costs are rarely ever recouped by volume sales and product decisions have

Epic Games Introduces Unreal Engine Human-Machine Interface (HMI) Initiative, Alliances and Automoti

Epic Games announced a new HMI initiative to enable the creation of automotive infotainment and digital cockpit experiences. According to the company, General Motors’ not yet revealed GMC HUMMER EV will be the first vehicle to use Unreal Engine HMI in its digital cockpit, with more details to come at the car’s October 20th unveiling.

Unreal Engine is designed to provide key features for design driven development. These include support for version control, visual scripting via Blueprints, and direct access to a C++ codebase that enables more functionality to be exposed. Rather than passively producing reference images for engineers to implement, this enables designers to directly collaborate with engineers and actively deploy designs into the vehicle.

Unreal Engine currently supports hardware platforms including the Qualcomm Snapdragon Automotive Platform, Siili Auto’s bespoke infotainment systems, and Vectorform’s digital product and customer experience platform. Support for the QNX Neutrino RTOS, a microkernel real-time

General Motors finally gets serious about in-car tech, taps the Unreal Engine for next-gen interface

The upcoming GMC Hummer EV will feature a new in-car user interface powered by the Unreal Engine. This powerful platform underpins the latest video games and is well-suited to provide vehicle occupants with a dynamic and robust experience.

Epic Games made the announcement yesterday while unveiling the latest development tools for its human-machine interface program.

Here’s the ugly truth: General Motors’ current crop of in-car user interfaces are among the worst on the market. As one of the world’s leading auto manufacturers, it’s surprising, but the infotainment system constantly underwhelms me in Chevy, Buick, GMC, and Cadillac vehicles.

Compared to competitors, GM’s cars’ systems are slow, boring, and lack the advanced features found in competing vehicles.

The Unreal Engine is a powerful platform and should provide GM’s engineers with plenty of space to accommodate the latest features and interfaces car shoppers can find elsewhere.

As Epic Games, the company behind
