New LG & Magna cross-domain platform: infotainment capabilities combined with ADAS and AD technologies

LG Electronics (LG) will hold a private demonstration for major automakers at CES 2024, introducing a new cross-domain platform integrating Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS), Automated Driving (AD) and In-Vehicle Infotainment (IVI) technologies. Developed by LG in collaboration with Magna, the mobility platform is expected to arrive on the market in the near future.

Initiated in 2023, the collaboration leverages the combined technological capabilities of LG and Magna to help deliver differentiated user experiences in the vehicle cabin. The two companies have successfully integrated a cross-domain cockpit computing system into a single System on Chip (SoC) representing a flexible and cost-effective solution for OEMs.

The single electronic module supports multiple IVI systems and ADAS/AD domain integration, and can efficiently handle various Automotive Safety Integrity Level (ASIL) requirements while using fewer electronic control units and taking up less packaging space.

This scalable solution is suitable for the coming transition towards the Software-Defined Vehicle (SDV) and for the consolidation of its electrical/electronic architecture. The integration of functionalities into a single module enables the real-time sharing of rich data across domains.


Via a dedicated Human Machine Interface (HMI), LG’s platform can provide drivers and passengers with new experiences and more intuitive interactions when using advanced automotive displays, digital clusters, Augmented Reality-Head Up Displays (AR-HUD) and visualization software. Additionally, the solution can be customized to meet any OEM’s integrated communications and IVI system needs. 2027 model year vehicles are expected be the first to benefit from this technology.

Another successful collaboration between the two companies, LG Magna e-Powertrain unites Magna’s expertise in electric powertrain systems with LG’s capabilities in component development for e-motors, inverters and on-board chargers. Announced in 2021, the joint venture encompasses engineering, design and manufacturing.
