Continental develops infotainment system for PSA China
Continental has developed a new Multimedia Radio Navigation (MRN) System for the PSA Peugeot Citroën Group in China. The product was launched with the Dongfeng Citroën C4 L car model in March 2013 and will later be available in different vehicles. Based on Continental’s scalable Multimedia Platform concept, the MRN System is the first navigation solution of Continental, exclusively tailor-made for a Chinese vehicle manufacturer. The development was mainly done by experts in Shanghai and Singapore, thus marking an important milestone for the development activities in Asia.
“In line with Continental’s “in the market – for the market” strategy, the launch of the Multimedia Radio Navigation System with the PSA Peugeot Citroën Group symbolizes our strong capability to develop competitive, unique and tailor-made products for the Asian markets“, comments Johann Hiebl, Head of Continental’s Business Unit Infotainment & Connectivity.
The MRN is based on Microsoft’s Windows Embedded Automotive operating system, a flexible and extendable software platform that enables the integration of new additional features over the entire lifetime of the vehicle.
