Connected vehicle with embedded eSIM technologies making the vehicle function like smartphones, and therefore it requires operating systems, apps, #infotainment, and cybersecurity. In addition to sensors and LIDAR technologies, vehicle systems can also perform real-time analytics and telematics for predictive maintenance, route planning, road safety and much more. All of this would need not just fast internet speed but also on-the-go computing at the edge services.
#Types of Infotainment applications:
- USB Media Hub #Wireless Charging
- The infotainment system is a central monitoring and control system that manages the necessary functions for entertainment, comfort and safety.
- Automotive instrument cluster: A car’s instrument cluster houses the various displays and indicators that enable a driver to operate the vehicle.
- Automotive display: Displays in consumer vehicles have long been dominated by head unit screens, providing navigation and display audio for drivers and passengers.
- Telematics: Telematics is a method of monitoring a vehicle. By combining a GPS system with on-board diagnostics it’s possible to record – and map – exactly where a car is and how fast it’s traveling, and cross reference that with how a car is behaving internally.
- Digital cockpit controller: The unit integrates functions of the traditional head unit, cluster, and head-up display (HUD) into a single controller. The DCPU generates video graphics to the remote cluster display, HUD, center stack display and multiple auxiliary displays, while processing inputs from cameras (rear and side), the surround-view system (SVS), HMI, radio tuners and in-vehicle connectivity. Our integrated circuits, reference designs and products enable you to efficiently design DPCU systems and decrease development time.
- Head unit: An automotive head unit is an automotive infotainment component providing a unified hardware interface for the system, including screens, buttons and system controls for numerous integrated information and entertainment functions.
- Smart device integration: By integrating a Smart device – a Smartphone or a Tablet – with the vehicle control system, OEMs can offer end user a range of value-adding functions.
- USB Media Hub: A media hub provides an interface from the vehicle’s infotainment system to personal electronic devices such as smartphones and tablets. In addition to providing a data link, the media hub also supplies power to charge batteries of these devices. Power delivery enables the quick charging of devices by providing up to 100W of power via the media hub.
- Wireless Charging: Wireless charging for personal electronics is a new convenience feature making its way into the automobile. Coupled with hands-free communication, it allows for convenient charging of the phone while in use within the vehicle.
With the growing functionality of smartphones within the vehicle, such as it being a source for entertainment, navigation and a wide variety of apps, a convenient method for charging is a differentiating feature in today’s market.
