In-Vehicle Infotainment Systems
An emerging technology in the field of automobile manufacturing industry is In-Vehicle Infotainment (IVI). It is
an integration of entertainment, multimedia and driver assisting technologies in a single module. This survey paper focuses
on ideas such as the need for an IVI system in vehicles, the advantages it offers over other similar technologies like stereo
systems, LCD televisions, Global Positioning System (GPS), etc. We describe in detail the modules that are integrated into
an IVI system viz. rear seat entertainment, external connectivity, connectivity to mobile devices, advanced driver assistance
systems and security systems. We then talk about modules that have not yet found implementation, but could be integrated
into future IVI systems.
