Jamie Little I visited Embedded World Germany several weeks ago and in addition to show being extremely vibrant, and saw a lot of buzz around the Internet of Things (IoT) and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE).  Semiconductor vendors, hardware vendors and software vendors alike were talking about IoT in various ways.   And why not?  The IoT momentum is quite significant given the billions of embedded devices that we expect … Read More

Andrew Patterson Enabling external connectivity for Infotainment Systems is a very hot topic in the automotive industry. At the Telematics Update conference in Munich this week, over 1000 attendees are learning about the latest developments in vehicle connectivity solutions. Most agree that all cars will have both internal and external connectivity by the end of the decade, enabling a wide range of safety features, … Read More

John Day   When I first saw that Sony has introduced an in-car entertainment system I presumed the company did so in partnership with an automaker. Most systems like the XAV-602BT are selling features in new cars. But this system is for the aftermarket, and I wonder if we won’t see more systems like it. Sony’s XAV-602BT features smartphone connectivity and an optional GPS module (XA-NV300T) with TomTom® … Read More

John Day   Last week I had the opportunity to experience Visteon’s e-Bee concept car (http://e-bee.visteon.com), which is based on a Nissan Leaf but has a remarkably different interior – one much roomier than I’m used to. The car is Visteon’s take on what a car might look, feel, and act like in 2020, by which time Visteon expects that car sharing and short-term rentals will be more common than they are … Read More

John Day At Electronica in Munich last month Visteon unwrapped its e-Bee concept vehicle, which represents the company’s vision of mobility in 2020. Visteon expects more car sharing and short-term rentals as alternatives to private vehicle ownership by then, and to accommodate that trend the concept car allows a set of preferences for each user to be stored in the cloud and retrieved when the driver enters … Read More

John Day The market for Wi-Fi in original equipment manufacturer (OEM) automotive applications will increase eightfold over the next seven years in North America and Western Europe according to IMS Research (recently acquired by IHS Inc.). The research firm notes that Wi-Fi attach rates in North America and Western Europe are relatively low at the moment but suggests that Wi-Fi will follow a trend similar … Read More

Colin Walls When I was a kid, we had an example of the very latest high technology electronics in our kitchen: a transistor radio. This amazing device was light and portable, ran for ages on a set of batteries and would come to life instantly when switched on, offering a choice of sources of entertainment from around the world. I seem to recall that it used an incredible seven transistors to achieve this feat. … Read More

John Day   Ford announced in England that in-car CD players are going the way of cassette tapes. The company noted that each Focus in the UK is equipped with an auxiliary input socket for connecting MP3 devices, and Bluetooth for wireless connection. Ford said it’s increasing the availability of Digital Audio Broadcasting (DAB) radio to UK customers, and will launch Ford SYNC next year. So customers won’t … Read More

John Day I thought everybody but me had a smart phone but Tony Kraatz, lead engineer for GM’s new infotainment system, the Chevy MyLink, reminded me that, in fact, not everybody has one, so you won’t need one to use MyLink. Any Bluetooth phone or USB device will work, and if you don’t have either of those you can use the 7-inch color touch screen, steering wheel controls, or voice commands to control the radio, … Read More

John Day The market research firm iSuppli recently predicted that factory-installed Wi-Fi will grow from about 174,000 this year to 7.2 million in 2017. That got me thinking about in-vehicle Internet access. iSuppli said automakers increasingly view wireless connectivity as a key competitive differentiator, and I am sure they do, but there is little consensus on how to provide that connectivity and little evidence … Read More

John Day I want lots of connectivity in my next car and have every reason to expect it (and, of course, to use it responsibly). We’re talking-cutting edge technology of the kind increasingly available to mid-range buyers; features like Internet access, voice recognition, full-color touch-screen displays, diagnostics, and various forms of infotainment. I was a bit surprised to learn that all of that and more … Read More
