John Day   Good news from Apple this week for those with Lightning-enabled iPhones (iPhone 5s, 5c and 5) who are planning to buy a new car later this year. The company says its CarPlay in-vehicle infotainment alternative “gives iPhone users an incredibly intuitive way to make calls, use Maps, listen to music and access messages with just a word or a touch.” Automakers expected to offer CarPlay include … Read More

John Day   More cars these days are equipped with display screens and sophisticated infotainment systems, but as the Car Connectivity Consortium (CCC) points out, even the most advanced infotainment systems cannot match the breadth of functionality in even the most ordinary smartphones. The CCC exists to promote MirrorLink™ (formerly known as Terminal Mode) as a safe way to allow drivers to use smartphones … Read More

John Day At IESF – great new venue this year, by the way – Paul Hansen (www.hansenreport.com) talked about tightening competition in automotive electronics, especially for infotainment; slimmer margins on new car sales, and a rush to offer connectivity to the cloud. He also outlined other problems for infotainment suppliers: Carmakers are taking systems integration in house, they are separating hardware sourcing … Read More

John Day     In January Johnson Controls announced that its Absorbent Glass Mat (AGM) battery technology will power Ford Motor Company’s 2013 Fusion Auto Start-Stop vehicle. Earlier this month the firm said its AGM will also power Chevrolet’s 2014 Malibu, which features Start-Stop (or Stop-Start). Start-Stop systems can improve fuel economy by 5 percent or more because the car’s engine shuts off when … Read More

John Day     With all of the electronic features currently in or planned for cars, it’s clear that automakers need more bandwidth. Frost & Sullivan Senior Research Analyst Divya Krishnamurthy suggests that Ethernet could serve as the backbone to the electronic architecture needed to connect domains and sub networks. 300 million Ethernet ports The research firm estimates that the total number … Read More

The increasing complexity of cars has taught automakers the value of cooperating with competitors on technology that customers won’t see and don’t care about but would be prohibitively expensive for a single automaker to develop in-house. Automakers and suppliers formed the GENIVI Alliance, for example, to create an open source (Linux-based) development platform for in-vehicle infotainment, facilitating

John Day It’s nice to see that some groups can work together for the common good. I’m thinking of the companies participating in the GENIVI Alliance. BMW, Delphi, General Motors, Intel, Magneti Marelli, PSA Peugeot Citroën, Visteon, and Wind River formed the Alliance a year ago to create an open source in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) reference platform. The initial version of the platform was released just nine … Read More

John Day Remember the Presidential debates a year or so ago? Or the race itself, for that matter. Think how much of the reporting focused on who won the last debate, or who was ahead in the race at the moment. Same with college football. We want to know who’s leading whom – even if we don’t have reliable metrics for determining the winner. This desire to keep score came to mind when I thought about the recent … Read More

John Day Is it just me or is it a law of nature? I’m at an otherwise empty intersection waiting for the red light to turn green, thinking about the gas I’m wasting, but nothing happens until another vehicle on the cross street reaches the intersection. THEN the light turns green. I can go and let the other driver think about the gas he or she is wasting – unless they are driving a hybrid, in which the engine … Read More
