To help determine the driving force behind the evolution of IVI systems, look no further than the pockets and palms of today’s typical consumer. Customers have become accustomed to smartphone-based digital experiences, which are defined by four things: touchscreen interaction, connectivity, artificial intelligence and a wealth of useful applications.
This eBook is based on a webinar where experts in automotive technology discussed the opportunities and challenges of the near future. Covering topics such as the evolution of modern IVI, shortening the technology lifecycle, IVI in autonomous vehicles and how to maintain brand differentiation.
In this part of the tour we invite you to experience the future of in-vehicle infotainment by taking a (virtual) seat in our transportation pod. The pod is our way of setting the scene for the in-vehicle experience of the next decade. We cover off drive, semi-autonomous and fully autonomous modes to see what use cases each scenario opens to drivers and passengers.
With many major events sadly and understandably cancelled this year, we wanted to share with you what’s new for the in-vehicle experience. Look at how advancements in connectivity software are set to greatly enrich the experience for drivers and passengers alike, across various transportation scenarios.
Your first career move is an exciting step. Taking that step with VNC Automotive can be hugely rewarding. Here’s Archie’s account of taking a graduate role at VNC Automotive.
In-vehicle infotainment (IVI) technology is developing at pace. That’s great news for consumers, who can expect a future where their car is a personal and professional media hub on wheels. Yet the rapidly-evolving nature of IVI systems presents tough challenges for OEMs. Not least how to monetise IVI and how to provide unique services to tech-hungry consumers, without sacrificing a brand identity that has been decades in the making.
In the 1920s, the first car radio was developed. Flash forward 100 years and the world of in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) has evolved beyond anything that would have been imaginable a few generations ago. As we enter a new decade that promises further transformative evolution in automotive IVI, we have embarked on a change of our own. Here’s the short story behind our rebrand.
What if your car was a futuristic living room on wheels? It may sound far-fetched and fantastic, but it’s the future. And the technology required to make it happen already exists. The challenge is bringing disparate technologies together to create one coherent IVI system.
Giving something back is great. And in 2019 our employees raised a total of £6,645 for charities and other good causes. It’s due in part to our ‘Giving Back A Day’ initiative, where each employee gets a day of paid leave to support a charity or local group that means something to them. Cue marathons, bake sales and hovercraft rides. Here’s our charitable year in pictures.
When it comes to cars, in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) systems have always been one of their salient elements ever since the first radio was affixed to a car’s trunk. Today, popular device interoperability standards, Android Auto, CarPlay, CarLife, MirrorLink, allow interlacing of the car’s IVI system with the driver’s mobile device to offer drivers a connected car experience.
