Trends in In-Vehicle-Experience (IVE)

Consumers expect to interact with their in-vehicle infotainment system in a similar way to how they interact with their smart phones, tablets and gaming systems. Additionally, new driver assisting functions continue to be integrated into the traditional infotainment system. Increasingly powerful SoC’s and components such as FPGAs are required to develop new ECUs to implement the functions and features that enable auto makers to keep up with the latest consumer and safety trends.
 
Within the infotainment system, the trends we are seeing are:
 
  • Visual data (more displays, higher resolutions, unique surfaces, projection based systems)
  • Unique features such as gesture, speech and voice recognition, Driver Monitoring System, Lane Departure Warning and Blind Spot Detection

Intel FPGAs are enabling designers to set the trends in IVE and enable the design of advanced systems with unique features. With the evolution of the In-Vehicle Experience, it’s now all about the ride!
