We expect our cars to be permanently online. Connectivity technologies are standard and they’ll add additional content and new functionality into cars/vehicles. This raises customers’ expectations and requires new and flexible Infotainment solutions.Today we see a paradigm shift within Infotainment architecture. Open-Source platforms will support the user (=customer=consumer) to add new functions and services through the whole product lifecycle. Also in case those are developed or provided by third party. Future systems need to provide such kind of flexible platform for new applications to suppliers.We expect the Android success story of open platform for smart phones will expand and continue in vehicles. However, transferring this nice, modern and smart world into the “Infotainment-world” of a car won’t be an easy job.Looking into details, a car is a pretty specific and difficult environment for mobile Infotainment ideas. On the one hand there are legal and administrative requirements and limitations (e.g. driver distraction), on the other hand there is a huge bunch of security requirements around the integration into the car’s working data systems.By nature these safety and integration issues are not or not fully addressed by today’s smartphone and tablet operating systems. Anyhow, Android and other OpenSource approaches will come more and more into vehicles and their systems. We need to have solutions addressing the above mentioned restrictions and safety requirements in combination with these nice and smart multimedia and internet applications – in a smart, flexible and cost efficient way.With the presentation we'll look in detail into the advantages of an Android based Infotainment solution. But we’ll also analyse disadvantages, restrictions and retentions of such a solution – and we’ll present and discuss ideas and solutions for those issues.
