HMI and IVI in general are becoming one of the most important components for car brand & identity. Heavy investments in this field are resulting in constant evolvement of software solutions for IVI. HMI is becoming more and more process demanding as it involves sensor data processing, high resolution, 3D graphics and AR.
Even today, IVI systems are facing heavy load processing of HMI, real-time applications and even safety critical features. When put in perspective with vehicle average lifecycle, it is obviously going to be a huge challenge for HW to keep up to date.
In order to keep the IVI system always fresh and deploy new features during the vehicle lifecycle, a lot of OEMs are taking the IVI to the cloud. Many applications in IVI are already connected and heavily rely on cloud service, connectivity and bandwidth.
