In-Vehicle Infotainment

Consumers buying a new car expect their in-vehicle device to support the latest consumer electronics (CE) standards and provide uninterrupted connection wherever they go. As a result, in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) systems are becoming increasingly important in creating a differentiated customer experience and are a critical element to success in the auto industry.

Delivering a successful IVI system means mastering the rapid pace of technology change in the CE industry: multiple standards and suppliers, piecemeal tools and technologies, compatibility issues, new regulations, intellectual property and licensing issues, and more. Many device manufacturers see the value in adopting open source innovation to capture the latest trend. But without the help of a trusted long-term partner, the effort to maintain such open source distribution can prove too difficult. Wind River® is uniquely positioned to help you capitalize on the value of open source and attain peace of mind at the same time.

Business Issues

HMI Optimization
A good human-machine interface (HMI) design provides intuitive information delivery without distracting the driver. This goal is becoming more challenging as the complexities of IVI systems grow and there are more and more data and connected devices to be processed and prioritized.

Keeping up with Consumer Electronics Development
Consumer electronics are constantly evolving. The life cycle of the average consumer device is only about three to six months, whereas automotive IVI devices require about two years to develop due to stringent safety concerns and complex functional use cases. Delivering products that meet customer expectations with automotive reliability and complexity is not an easy task.

Multimedia and Graphics Performance
Extensive multimedia and graphics support is key to creating a differentiated user experience and requires seamless integration between software and hardware to deliver on single and multiple screens. Keeping up with increasing demands and supporting them throughout the vehicle life cycle is an ongoing high-priority quest for most Tier 1 suppliers and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs).

Integrating more mobile devices into car infotainment systems is an irreversible trend. At the same time, the need for connectivity between vehicle telematics, software buses, phones, Wi-Fi, and more will continue to grow as we move into the age of the "Internet of Things," where vehicles communicate with other vehicles, devices, or the network infrastructure, and where almost everything is connected through the network. Device manufactures must have a clear strategy to provide future-proof solutions.

Software Integration and Reliability
As vehicle software becomes more complex (modern automobiles require over 10 million lines of code), integrating different systems and ensuring they provide reliable performance becomes more and more challenging. Companies must rely on proven integration and quality release processes to manage these demands.

Driver Safety
All automotive system design must make driver safety its first priority. Device manufacturers need to find a delicate balance between fulfilling customer desires and creating driver distraction.

Software Security
As vehicles become information hubs servicing drivers and passengers, software security issues also become a vital concern in automotive software development. If the system is hacked, driver privacy and security can both be jeopardized.
