Volvo Cars partners with video game giant
In order to provide its customers with the best possible “user experience”, Volvo Cars has partnered with Epic Games to integrate the Unreal Engine into future Volvo vehicles. This will make it possible to obtain graphics of an unparalleled quality in the cabin.
Epic Games is a leading interactive entertainment and software company. We owe him Fortnite, one of the greatest games in the world. Epic Games is also developing Unreal Engine, widely regarded as the most advanced real-time 3D creation tool, used in various industries beyond games.
Volvo will be the first European car manufacturer to use the Unreal engine for the development of the human-machine interface (HMI). Specifically, it will initially focus on the Driver Information Module (DIM), one of the cabin screens that provides the driver with relevant information and infotainment functions.
In future Volvos, customers will therefore be entitled to high-quality graphics with much sharper renderings, richer colors and brand new 3D animations.
By combining the Unreal Engine with the high computing power of the third-generation Snapdragon Cockpit Platforms, the next generation of Volvo cars will set a new standard for graphics performance and infotainment systems.
