From 2023, the BMW Group will be launching an infotainment system based on Android Open Source for the first time — the “BMW Operating System 9”. The announcement was made by Stephan Durach, Senior Vice-President Connected Company and Development Technical Operations at the BMW Group, at the Automobil-Elektronik Kongress in Ludwigsburg. In this new variant of the “BMW Operating System”, the user experience, applications and user interface design are also developed and implemented in a BMW specific way.

The current version of “BMW Operating System 8” is based on Linux. Even for vehicles with the “BMW Operating System 9”, the so-called Shared Service Layer will continue to be Linux-based. This layer is used, for example, to control the Remote Software Upgrade, with which BMW has been able to upgrade every line of the vehicle software over-the-air since 2018. This includes the areas of infotainment, driving, driver assistance, comfort and safety.

“We are integrating the best aspects of all worlds – that could be our own in-house developments, Open Source or commercial software products, depending on what the specific solution looks like. We make sure our customers always enjoy a unique, customised digital experience in their vehicle,” according to the lead developer for the digital driving experience, Stephan Durach.

The different software platforms enable the infotainment systems to be customised for different vehicle segments.

CO2 emission information.

Fuel consumption, CO2 emission figures and power consumption and range were measured using the methods required according to Regulation VO (EC) 2007/715 as amended. They refer to vehicles on the German automotive market. For ranges, the NEDC figures take into account differences in the selected wheel and tyre size, while the WLTP figures take into account the effects of any optional equipment.

All figures have already been calculated based on the new WLTP test cycle. NEDC figures listed have been adjusted to the NEDC measurement method where applicable. WLTP values are used as a basis for the assessment of taxes and other vehicle-related duties which are (also) based on CO2 emissions and, where applicable, for the purposes of vehicle-specific subsidies. Further information on the WLTP and NEDC measurement procedures is also available at www.bmw.de/wltp.

For further details of the official fuel consumption figures and official specific CO2 emissions of new cars, please refer to the “Manual on the fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and power consumption of new cars”, available at sales outlets free of charge, from Deutsche Automobil Treuhand GmbH (DAT), Hellmuth-Hirth-Str. 1, 73760 Ostfildern-Scharnhausen and at https://www.dat.de/co2/.
