Due to the convergence of in-vehicle and consumer communications technologies, the need for connected infotainment in vehicles is growing at a rapid pace. This is coupled with inflated customer expectations and constant innovation in the personal electronics industry which is making automakers race to launch the best possible connected infotainment platforms to attract buyers. Additionally, multimodal IVI system interactions (touch, voice, gestures, etc.), the need for IVI personal assistants like Alexa and Google, proliferation of ECUs, and the exponential increase in complexity of cockpit design in passenger cars will pose challenges in the near future.
