The global market for infotainment systems in passenger cars is projected to reach $35.2 billion by 2020. Improvements in voice recognition technologies, in-dash displays and “smart” driver distraction systems have increased customer demand for such technology.
In-vehicle infotainment systems generally require relatively substantial computing and graphics performance. Here's a look at Intel's complete platform that incorporates hardware and software, which helps manufacturers improve time to market and free resources so they can focus on creating compelling user experiences.
The chip maker provides system-on-chip hardware from the company's Atom E3800 family, an Intel Ethernet Controller, as well as power management and storage. The "Intel In-Vehicle Software Foundation" software is pre-validated with the company's compute module. The goal is to enable faster time to market compared with traditional solutions.
