FCA to demo a concept of its new Android-powered UConnect infotainment system at CES 2017

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is indeed placing more of its focus into in-car technology as evidenced by its decision not to unveil any new production vehicle or show car at the Detroit Auto Show as well as by its intention to demonstrate a concept version of its planned Google Android-based infotainment system at the 2017 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Essentially, the UConnect connect vehicle system to be shown at the CES 2017 isn’t the final version yet. The demonstration aims to show the seamless integration of Google’s Android operating software and FCA’s UConnect infotainment system. This means that via the demo, FCA and Google want to show that the new UConnect still has the easy-to-use interface and functionality of the current system but now comes loaded with several elements that are only found in Android-powered devices.

As part of the hands-on concept demo at the CES 2017 (scheduled from January 5 to 8, 2017), FCA and Google will showcase a Chrysler 300 unit. Its current 8.4-inch UConnect software has been replaced with a prototype UConnect system that is based on Google’s Android 7.0 (Android Nougat) operating system.

Intel teams up with Toyota to develop next-generation in-vehicle infotainment systems

Intel Corporation and Toyota Motor Corporation have teamed up to develop the next-generation in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) systems that will be used on new models for mobile device connectivity.

As the result of the convergence of technology with cars, the silicon solutions that serve the infotainment and telematics market may increase from $5.6 billion in 2010 to $8.7 billion in 2018. Intel and Toyota want to fit advanced technologies in the vehicle in a more intuitive manner that lessens driver distraction.
