Extensive multimedia and graphics support is key to creating a differentiated user experience and requires seamless integration between software and hardware to deliver on single and multiple screens. Keeping up with increasing demands and supporting them throughout the vehicle life cycle is an ongoing high-priority quest for most Tier 1 suppliers and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs).
Customers expect to bring the same type of graphical user interface (GUI) experience they are accustomed to on their tablets and smartphones to their vehicles. Ensuring the system delivers such performance with a reasonable cost and power consumption is a key challenge—as is keeping the system relevant for years to come. A good system design addresses these issues at both the software and hardware levels to optimize and future-proof performance. Wind River® can help.
