Virtual Summit. Ten Webinars. Two Days.

Can’t attend a session live? No problem. Register anyway, and we’ll send you a link to the slides and a video of each webinar after it has finished.

In-vehicle infotainment (IVI) systems have become a significant factor in a consumer’s purchasing decision-making process. Vehicle manufacturers and their suppliers understand that IVI now represents one of the most potent opportunities to make their products stand out from the crowd.

This virtual summit will bring together the world’s leading experts to help you understand the technologies and trends that are shaping the evolution of in-vehicle infotainment systems.

By registering, you’ll gain free access to all ten webinars, each of which will feature a presentation followed by a question and answer session. We’ll keep you informed of the webinar topics and presenters as and when they are confirmed, and you’ll also receive the slides and a video recording after each webinar has finished.

AUTOMOTIVE TELEMATICS AND 5G MOMENTUM
Time: 4am Detroit | 10am Stuttgart | 1.30pm Mumbai | 5pm Tokyo

Presentation by Ivan Dimkovic, Co-Founder, VP Product Portfolio Management, Cinemo
Time: 5am Detroit | 11am Stuttgart | 2.30pm Mumbai | 6pm Tokyo

SYNCHRONOUS AUDIO/VIDEO STREAMING IN AN ALL-ETHERNET VEHICLE WITH AVB/TSN
Time: 9am Detroit | 3pm Stuttgart | 6.30pm Mumbai | 10pm Tokyo

The move from domain-oriented system architecture to new zonal architectures is fuelling the change from legacy networking technologies to Ethernet.

Ethernet, by nature, is a packet-oriented and non-deterministic technology, which is suitable where data packets of any size are required to be transmitted, one after the other. However, in applications that require continuous transmission and possibly even synchronous streaming data such as audio and video, Ethernet is not the ideal solution.

In this session, Microchip Technology‘s Francis Ielsch explains how adding Audio Video Bridging (AVB) or Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN) support can fix these problems and make Ethernet suitable for audio and video applications in vehicles.

Key topics and takeaways:

  • The global automotive industry is heading toward full Ethernet vehicles, but classic Ethernet non-deterministic behavior is a barrier
  • Overview of AVB/TSN and how it improves Ethernet’s deterministic behaviour and latency for synchronous audio/video transmission
  • Case study showing how an in-vehicle audio infotainment system made of multiple sources and speakers can achieve high-quality synchronous audio

ADVANCING THE INFOTAINMENT SYSTEM WITH AUTOMOTIVE ETHERNET
Time: 10am Detroit | 4pm Stuttgart | 7.30pm Mumbai | 11pm Tokyo

The infotainment system runs all the communication and entertainment functions of a car, from phone calls and navigation to music, driver assistance, comfort control, and emergency systems. 

In this session, Carrie Browen and Ionel Ghita of Keysight Technologies discuss the challenges these systems face as data requirements increase and how to test for them ahead of time.

Key topics and takeaways:

  • Recognize the challenges in multimedia architectures, zonal networks and expanding requirements for telematics in the vehicle
  • Learn how to test for network failures with the emulation of real-time traffic
  • How to maintain data and signal integrity throughout the networks in a vehicle
