Fast Facts: The Site
The Intel Automotive Innovation and Product Development Center in Karlsruhe serves as Intel's global center of competence for the development of solutions for in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) and telematics solutions. The Karlsruhe site is part of the Automotive Solutions Division within the Intel Architecture Group.
Additionally, the site is designed to accommodate automotive system-level development requirements and features a unique secured car park to house pre-announced cars from automakers. The building was also retrofitted to be static free for production unit testing and features satellite, TV, FM, GPS and digital video broadcasting capabilities, all needed to fully develop, operate and test complete IVI systems.
Focus of Development
In-vehicle infotainment (IVI): The focus of engineering and product development is on in-vehicle infotainment systems. IVI systems encompass a variety of digital applications that can be used by drivers and passengers inside a vehicle, including internal connectivity, navigation, location-based services, external communications and rear-seat entertainment.
The engineering team also works closely with automobile manufacturers and suppliers of IVI systems to accelerate the development of IVI systems using Intel® architecture and explore how technology can enable new experiences in the car for both drivers and passengers. Intel is also a founding member of the GENIVI Alliance industry association, which advances the extensive introduction of open source development platforms for in-vehicle infotainment.
Telematics: Intel develops platforms and products for networked monitoring electronics and telematics solutions in commercial vehicles. These are becoming increasingly important for vehicle manufacturers, transport companies, and bus services in order to transmit digital information to and from vehicles that are on the move.
In addition to the work at the Karlsruhe site, Intel is exploring ways to increase safety on the roadways and railways. Existing applications include intelligent roads that use laser measurement devices and special cameras to measure the tire profile of vehicles during travel and provide drivers with a warning notification, and intelligent street lighting that uses Intel technology to improve energy efficiency.
