When first responders attend a call out, every moment counts. In those moments, an array of in-vehicle technology can assist in ensuring the vehicle and its occupants arrive at the unfolding scene more safely and efficiently. In this blog, Philip Handschin, Technical Consultant at VNC Automotive, looks at how device connectivity software is aiding fantastic advancements in law enforcement, fire, and rescue vehicles.
As VNC Automotive launch their new commercial evaluation packs for automotive OEMs and their infotainment suppliers, Agustin Almansi gives a first look at what to expect.
Five years from now, it’s likely that the latest cars are going to be very different inside. Yet while there has been plenty of column inches devoted to what consumers can expect from tomorrow’s in-vehicle infotainment (IVI), it’s important to remember that none of it will happen without the automakers bringing the latest technologies to the vehicle in a way that preserves the integrity of their brand, their business and their consumer relationships.
To help determine the driving force behind the evolution of IVI systems, look no further than the pockets and palms of today’s typical consumer. Customers have become accustomed to smartphone-based digital experiences, which are defined by four things: touchscreen interaction, connectivity, artificial intelligence and a wealth of useful applications.
This eBook is based on a webinar where experts in automotive technology discussed the opportunities and challenges of the near future. Covering topics such as the evolution of modern IVI, shortening the technology lifecycle, IVI in autonomous vehicles and how to maintain brand differentiation.
In this part of the tour we invite you to experience the future of in-vehicle infotainment by taking a (virtual) seat in our transportation pod. The pod is our way of setting the scene for the in-vehicle experience of the next decade. We cover off drive, semi-autonomous and fully autonomous modes to see what use cases each scenario opens to drivers and passengers.
