Intel Corp. and Toyota Motor Corp. have announced that the companies are working together to define next-generation in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) systems that will enable new usage models for mobile device connectivity in the car.

Intel and Toyota aim to integrate advanced technologies in the vehicle in a more intuitive manner that reduces driver distraction. To accomplish this, the companies will focus research on developing a user interaction methodology including touch, gesture and voice technologies as well as information management for the driver. Intel will also work to optimize these features and services using the performance of the Intel Atom processor family.

The companies will also explore emerging connectivity technologies and effective ways to integrate vehicles with the home to provide a seamless connection across all areas of people’s lives.

“Intel has been conducting research related to the connected car for years, and with the support of Toyota will extend that research to advanced services that will benefit the driver and passengers in many ways. Through this joint effort, we hope to improve the driving experience by enabling a seamless connection between mobile devices and the vehicle so when brought together they naturally adapt and work in harmony,” said Staci Palmer, general manager of Intel’s automotive solutions division.

According to Mobile Future, the connected car is the third-fastest growing technological device, following smartphones and tablets. As technology converges with the car, silicon solutions serving the infotainment and telematics market are expected to rise from $5.6 billion in 2010 to $8.7 billion in 2018.

“Toyota aims to lead the future mobile world through integration of vehicle, home and information communication technologies as announced in the ‘Toyota Global Vision’ earlier this year. Toyota, along with Intel, will use information technologies to drive innovations into the vehicle to make the vision a reality,” said Kenichi Murata, project general manager at electronics development division of Toyota Motor.

Oh Toyota, you continually flush yourself down the shitter. Look at current carmakers and their Atom products and realize how big a mistake this is... If you do take the plunge, at least keep some of the basic controls OFF the touchscreen. I don't need touchscreen climate controls, the 3 knobs that have worked fine for the last 50 years will work just fine now too.

Lets hope it's a lot more stable that MyFord Touch software running Windows Mobile 6.5. That thing crashes every other day. They owners of Ford vehicles are @#%#$@.

I think Intel gave a container load of $$$ money to Toyota in order to compete with nVidia's Tegra 3 deal with Audi. Totota's infotainment systems would be lagy and unresponsive thanks to Intel Hd graphics and Atom CPU.
