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

Article by Christian A., on November 14, 2011

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. Mobile Future said that the connected car is the No. 3 quickest growing technological device, after the smartphones and tablets.

The digital lifestyle is evident even in the consumers’ cars and what Intel and Toyota will be doing is to use features that drivers and passengers already have in their latest consumer electronic devices to an automotive environment.

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.

To attain this goal, the research will be focused on creating a user interaction methodology that uses touch, gesture and voice technologies and information management for the driver as well.

Intel will be working for the optimization of these features and services with the use of the Intel Atom processor family.
