It sounds like the controls for infotainment should be distributed. Even if a luxury car has a hired driver in some cases, the driver must be able to control the infotainment system when they are driving alone. Having controls at each seat with an override in the hands of the driver (like the electric window controls) would seem the ideal solution.

@Krisi  I live in India and here in India most of the well to do people having luxury cars keep drivers to drive their luxury cars. Driving on Indian roads is quite tasking especially in busy hours and parking is another problem in business districts. Having a driver solves both the hassles.

Looks like a power house for the IVI of the future.

Just a thought!

 

While the economy and mid size cars are generally driven by owners , the luxury cars are normally driven by the drivers while the owners sit back .

This aspect is very crucial while designing the infotainment systems for various car models.

So for economy cars majority of the controls need to be on the dashboard whereas for the luxury cars many of the controls especially for the infotainment should be in the hands of the backseat passengers.

@Bert, I agree. Actually, the scalability TI brings to the platform is impressive, and well thought out, I believe. It's one thing to design a super duper SoC, but it's completely another to allow scalability and re-use of software across the different models.

Impressive product. As annoying as it is that so many different standards now exist around the world, to perform the same functions, it's heartening to see products like this one, which will accommodate them all. If I were TI, I might consider more than just automotive applications for this.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
