Automotive was one of the first fields that capitalized on the prowess of electronics to upgrade the various systems used in vehicles to communicate, monitor, control, navigate and entertain. No wonder, the level of sophistication and intelligence built into in-vehicle systems such as engine controls, power train, comfort functions such as infotainment, navigation, passive and active safety, etc and transportation infrastructure such as toll collection, automated ticketing etc is increasing exponentially with the emergence of new hardware and software platforms, communication protocols and induction of new age technologies such as analytics and AI. The Transportation team of NeST Digital strives to provide better solutions to OEMs and Tier I vendors for overcoming the challenges of the technology curve, competition and increasing customer expectations.
Apart from these changes in the Automotive sector, emergence of Electric vehicles and Autonomous vehicles has been the major trend in the recent past. Not surprisingly, NeST Digital Transportation team has kept pace with developments in this field also.
Connected to the internet, vehicles communicate with the physical environment and other vehicles around them. Here comes the need of Infotainment – the combination of information and entertainment, and Telematics – the combination of telecommunication and informatics.
With its competencies in infotainment and embedded skills, NeST Digital adds value to next generation state-of-art Vehicle Infotainment and Telematics. The technology explosions in consumer electronics industry along with intuitive and simple design enhances passenger experience in a car. Following is the list of products NeST Digital can deliver:

In order to address the challenges faced in the scarcity of non-renewable energy resources and the effects of pollution, the automotive industry is looking towards electric vehicles. NeST Digital offers EV Quick chargers and On-board chargers, across the Electric vehicle mobility segment. On the other hand, the dependency upon electronic devices is increasing drastically, where the need of power is being met only partially. An effective solution to meet the power needs is to have a power source on board.
With a unique design architecture, the Electric Vehicle Charging Solutions (EVCS) of NeST Digital are tailored for US/EU/China/Indian markets. The EVCS from NeST Digital perfectly adheres to the industry compliance standards from IEC, SAE and NEC.
NeST Digital is the hub for hardware, software & manufacturing services which offer Instrument Cluster solutions to OEMs and Tier 1s. NeST Digital offers Digital Instrument Cluster with easily expandable infotainment applications and second generation Heads up Display with TFT Display, LED driver and Mirror across this segment. NeST Digital’ knowledge in automotive product development lifecycle, platforms and framework automatically takes care of architectural complexity.
The platform expertise ranges from Freescale-i.MX, Vybrid, Renesas-RH850, and operating system expertise in Embedded Linux, AGL.

Autonomous Vehicles are self-driving vehicles, in other words. The Autonomous vehicles use different sensors for sensing different physical parameters. Based upon these parameters, decisions are to be made in situations like choosing a route dynamically, controlling the vehicle speed etc. NeST Digital’ proficiency lies in its Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Image processing dexterity.
The competency of the Transportation team in AI lies in its dedicated AI expert team. Deep learning, Feature Space Engineering & Neural network design for image detection and recognition in MATLAB, and Natural Language processing & Image recognition with Tensorflow are some of the major areas the team aims at. To be specific, following are the AI competencies that the Transportation team makes itself worthy enough in the contemporary AI market.
NeST Digital leverages deep focus on Image Processing through its competencies in image enhancement, pattern recognition and feature extraction using the image processing tools such as Matlab, Labview and OpenCV. Categorizing into Pattern Recognition, Image Enhancement and Feature Extraction, following are the Image Processing competencies of our Transportation team.
Image processing Competencies:
With cost as a parameter, a recent study has projected that more than 50% of an automobile will be comprised of electronic components by 2030, which was only 15% in 1990!
NeST Digital offers different Vehicle Electronics solutions. The unmatched expertise in automotive hardware and firmware design and manufacturing is yet-another added asset. The quality of NeST Digital in Vehicle Electronics solutions lies in adhering to ISO/TS 16949 standards. On the other hand, complying with ISO 26262 standards, we provide functional safety of the Vehicle Electronics. Alongside meeting these hardware standards, we stick to MISRA C coding standards and AUTOSAR design standards.
