In-vehicle infotainment systems have undergone rapid transformation, essentially turning the car into a computer. Most consumers consider in-car infotainment to be passengers watching movies in the backseat. But it’s much more. The center console screen that tracks your location via GPS. That’s infotainment. Your car’s ability to connect to any Bluetooth devices you may own. Infotainment. Voice activated ability to call your contacts while you drive. That’s infotainment.
Infotainment systems are the communications hub for the car. With features like safety sensors that detect objects in blind spots, or parking cameras that enable drivers to see what’s behind them, infotainment technology is making the driving experience more safe, connected and enjoyable for drivers and passengers alike.
As infotainment technology continues to advance and cars become more autonomous, cars will become more an extension of your living room or office. Driving or riding in your car will provide extra time for entertainment or work. A place to watch your favorite TV show or work on your laptop while on the highway or stuck in traffic. All without worrying about your safety or the safety of those around you.
