    Does anyone know who actually develops software (writes code) for Fisker Karma and future models (Nina)? Is it known which operating system Fisker (Quantum) proprietary software is based upon?

    Thank you very much,

    Arsen

    The command center is built (and I believe coded) by visteon. They had it on display @ CES. Not sure that's bragging quality.

    So they outsourced their software to a hardware company? Yeah, that'll work...

    Are you sure? I'm looking through their product line, and there really isn't anything in there I would relate in anyway to EV systems management. A lot of ICE C&C, and some really bad looking display/nav stuff. Core Fisker systems would seem to be out of their box.

    Sorry, I only know for the command center. I imagine the battery control systems et al were either done in-house or by another party.

    Thank you, guys.

    Info on Visteon has been helpful, although I do not think they have the workforce to write code in-house. I will continue the research.
