Success Story: Augmented Reality

Situation

Harman was awarded to supply an industry-first augmented navigation system that was to become part of the all-new Mercedes MBUX infotainment system. Due to lack of skilled internal resources Harman was seeking embedded software support to develop the system based Open Scene Graph (OSG).

Activities

  • Cogent participated with several embedded software engineers, supporting the Harman team both off-site and on-site in Tel-Aviv (Israel) and Filderstadt (Germany).
  • Based on Daimler requirements our engineers worked hand-in-hand with their Harman counterparts to develop functional logic that controls the display to augmented overlays on a live video feed.
  • The team used an agile development process to meet demanding customer expectations. Cogent developers were fully integrated in Harman’s Jira system.

Results

The team met its deliverables – Augmented Reality is launching in the 2019 Mercedes A-Class as part of the new Mercedes Benz User Interface (MBUX).

Cogent’s support was instrumental to the timely completion and successful launch of the feature.
