The next-generation in-vehicle infotainment system (IVI)
for select NISSAN Motor Company production vehicles will
be powered by the Intel Atom processor beginning next
The IVI system features a twin-display that was unveiled
in the Infiniti LE, a luxury zero-emissions concept
vehicle, at the New York International Auto Show today.
Infiniti is the luxury vehicle brand of the NISSAN Motor
The twin-display will enable the driver to see traffic
information and navigation while simultaneously
delivering entertainment, such as movies, to passengers.
The product development builds on a relationship between
Intel and NISSAN, which includes joint research through
Intel Labs to explore new ways to customize applications
and enhance mobile device connectivity in the car. The
joint research focused on several areas of exploration,
including mobile device-to-vehicle fusion, cloud-based
services for vehicles, and vehicle video surveillance via
smartphones, as well as vehicle access and control via
smartphones. For example, by using in-car connectivity
and cameras and sensors already in the car, the car is
able to notify the owner via smartphone when the vehicle
is struck in a parking lot.
