What exactly is the possibility of Intel's on-board entertainment system for us?

Are you like me, if you drive to a strange place, you will find your phone and turn on the online map before you leave for navigation.

Vehicle navigation has been out of favour for a long time because of unclear images and untimely route updates. Maybe you've heard some news reports, such as the owner has been following the navigation guide in strange places, some into the tram tunnel, some into the guillotine road, and even into the river.

These navigating experiences, which sound awkward and even like jokes, are really happening around us. 

Vehicle information entertainment system
First of all, let's take a look at the vehicle Information Entertainment system (IVI), which uses a special central processor (CPU), a vehicle integrated information processing system based on bus system and Internet service, to provide users with professional geographical information, multimedia entertainment, intelligent transportation and other services, which greatly improves the safety and comfort of driving.

According to the different function form, the vehicle information entertainment system can be divided into entertainment system and information system. Entertainment system mainly includes audio and video equipment such as radio, multimedia and other audio and video equipment to provide entertainment services for in-car driving personnel; information system mainly includes navigation engine and software, electronic map, wireless broadcast information, remote communication and other equipment, to provide information services for in-car driving personnel.

The on-board information entertainment system can realize a series of applications, including three-dimensional navigation, real-time road condition, network television, auxiliary driving, fault detection, vehicle information, body control, mobile office, wireless communication, entertainment function based on online and TSP service, etc., which greatly improves the level of electronic, networked and intelligent vehicles.

FPGA and on-board entertainment systems. 
Nowadays, the automobile market is developing rapidly, many automobile manufacturers are developing complex in-car mobile application ecosystem, such as high-performance camera, image sensor, information entertainment, dashboard system, network connection and so on. MIPI interface has been widely used by automobile manufacturers, its scheme is mature, its application is simple, there is no wire connection between components, low power consumption, high bandwidth, safety has been verified. And has good anti-electromagnetic interference ability.

The in-car entertainment system based on Intel ®MAX ®10 FPGA will demonstrate the full-chip MAX ®10 FPGA solution, which uses an external passive D-PhD adapter to receive and receive video data through the MIPI DSI interface. It can achieve 4 K HD effect, can process 60 frames of pictures per second, and has a broad application prospect.

First of all, 4K ultra-high definition can obviously bring more delicate pictures. Usually, the picture resolution of 1080P is 1920 × 1080P, while the resolution of 4K is 4 times of that of ordinary 1080P, and the resolution of 4K is higher than that of ordinary 1080P. In this way, we can see every detail in the picture, each close-up, have an excellent visual experience, can effectively make up for the distortion caused by low gamut, color bias and other defects, make the color more vivid, more in line with the healthy visual preference of the human eye. In this way, when we use the on-board entertainment system, just like using our own mobile phone, the experience is better.

So, what does 60 frames mean? Frame rate (Frame rate) is a measure of the number of display frames. The unit of measurement is the number of display frames per second.: fps), 60 frames means that the screen is refreshed 60 times per second. Because of the special physiological structure of human eyes, the frame rate of the picture is higher than 16:00, which is considered to be coherent, which is called visual temporary retention. And a higher frame rate can get a smoother, more realistic picture, which is generally acceptable to 30fps. However, if you increase the frame rate to 60, you can significantly improve the interaction. Feeling and truthfulness. The traditional on-board information entertainment system usually has only 24 frames, which is barely visible, which is why we always feel that there are drag and Canton phenomena when we look at the control screen of the old car.

With 4K and 60 frames, the on-board entertainment system based on Intel ®MAX ®10 FPGA will evolve from a single function such as video and navigation to a more complex and powerful intelligent terminal, and the on-board information entertainment system will become the main entrance to the on-board information service. With the continuous development of intelligent cars, the terminal entrance function of vehicle information entertainment system becomes more and more important.
