Frost & Sullivan: How Automotive OEMs Can Benefit from Multimodal HMI and Workload Managers

May 8, 2012

LONDON, May 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — In order to enable app playback in the car display, vehicle manufacturers have turned to advanced Mirrorlink type interfaces. This move has opened up discussions with government bodies such as the North American NHTSA, which in turn proposes a set of guidelines for OEMs to keep driver distraction at bay. In view of these developments, automotive suppliers such as Delphi and Denso are developing multimodal HMI infotainment solutions with voice as the center pillar. These intelligent solutions are supported by workload managers, which can sense driving environment to present best levels of applications to drivers.

To learn more about what different OEMs are working on in the multimodal HMI space and their next generation of apps and business models, Frost & Sullivan organised a web conference, entitled How OEMs Can Benefit from Multimodal HMI and Workload Managers. Global Program Manager, Infotainment & Telematics, Praveen Chandrasekar, identified key supplier activities as they are responding already to proposed changes by regulatory bodies such as NHTSA. He also looked at future plans of OEMs and suppliers and the way this connected space will evolve.

This on demand web conference will benefit vehicle manufacturers, tier 1 suppliers, tier 2 component suppliers, automotive software providers as well as app developers.

“OEMs are creating more and more revenue models around apps with the way forward, as Ford started it, to tie app access to infotainment packages supporting multimodal HMI,” explained Mr. Chandrasekar. “This will ensure brand differentiation as well as safety, which is foremost, besides bridging the digital divide of consumers. Adding to this initiative from suppliers such as Delphi, the MyFi lineup is also addressing a key element of driver distraction,” he concluded.
