Jamie Little The first Mentor Embedded product (Nucleus) that was released for an ARM-based device was back in 1993 on an ARM6 platform. To site a few references from that time, the project for the ARM6 platform was called Acorn RISC Machine (evolved to Advanced RISC Machine (ARM)), ARM didn’t have nearly as many licensees as they do today, the top RISC processors from that time no longer exists, and the Nucleus … Read More

Kamran Shah Andrew Patterson hosted a webinar that was very popular recently on the options for making use of Android in IVI systems. This includes porting Android to run directly on an SoC as the sole operating system, running Android in conjunction with another operating system such as Linux with use of a hypervisor, or making use of Android via a Linux Container. As a follow-up Ned, one of experts on Linux Containers, … Read More

Kamran Shah The role of android as an alternative to embedded Linux has been a subject of quite a bit of discussion recently.  As the use of open source software in automotive gains momentum there are differing opinions  on the subject of using Android, Linux or both.  The Linux Foundation recently wrote a post summarizing a discussion during a panel at the Android Builders Summit as well as some interviews from … Read More

Kamran Shah Two weeks ago we announced the acquisition of the MontaVista Automotive Business Unit, including the Linux IVI (infotainment) platform called the MontaVista Automotive Technology Platform. When Mark Mitchell, GM of Open Source Embedded Solutions, was interviewed by EE Times he mentioned he expected to be have a combined release of the MontaVista Linux solution for IVI and the Mentor Embedded Infotainment … Read More

Kamran Shah This is what some in industry would have you believe; I disagree  Thinking back to the 1990’s and 2000’s we heard the same thing about Linux as an OS for servers.  It’s clear from the use of Linux in servers today and the many consumer devices built on Linux that the OS and its ecosystem can meet very demanding business and technical needs, addressing and overcoming many of the shortcomings cited in … Read More

Today, more ‘things’ are connected to the Internet than there are people on the planet. Connectivity was a major theme at last week’s Freescale FTF event in San Antonio, Texas. There were over 1300 attendees, and around 200 technical sessions over the course of 4 days. An impressive range of SoC solutions aimed at connectivity covered such diverse applications, from Medical, Energy Management, Safety

Phil Burr I was involved in a discussion about driver workload management the other week. It is a fascinating topic and I can see it becoming a much more important feature of in-vehicle HMIs in the coming years.  The basic concept is pretty straightforward – when a driver is in a high workload situation (e.g. driving at 70mph on a crowded freeway), the HMI adapts so that the functionality available to the driver … Read More

HMI Joy of Use

Posted by Phil Burr

Phil Burr I attended an excellent automotive HMI conference in Europe last week, with attendees from many of the top OEMs and tier-1 suppliers.  As we all know, automotive HMI is a complicated subject, and hence topics ranged from driver distraction,  workload management,  usability studies, the desire of drivers to access their favourite internet applications in the car and the recently published NHTSA driver … Read More
