The full-fledged entertainment features like watching videos are restricted to only rear passengers. In drive mode, drivers are limited with access to only audio to avoid driver distraction. Rear passengers and drivers are classified into different audio zones. Each of the rear passengers are equipped with headsets so that audio merging with driver zone can be avoided. This leads to passenger discomfort, as many passengers would not prefer to hook up with headset all the time. Now the automotive world is envisioned to reach fully autonomous mode where there is no driver and every passenger is interested to listen to music/video of diverse interest. The audio zones in autonomous car need not be zonified or linear. Circular audio zone can also be a good choice for autonomous cars. There are situations in autonomous cars where passenger is asleep in vehicle and hence…

An intelligent vehicle can outsmart a human by self-caring to maintain the cleanliness elements on floor, seat and roof. This paper addresses subjects like wetness, dirt and stains in the vehicle interior utilizing the capability of Interior sensing platform. An internally mounted camera in the vehicle can capture images of the interior and apply image processing techniques to identify the subjects mentioned above. The wetness on the floor mats can lead to moldy odor, corrosion, failure of the electronic components in the car. Over a period, the vehicle upholstery or seats absorb the dirt and stains and lead to foul smell. HVAC can be used for drying the interior as appropriately detected by the system. A modern system to…

This paper presents an idea to provide a focused and targeted content delivery to the vehicle users. The schema is based on using existing technologies like driver monitoring systems combined with data analytics to provide focused content.The methodology to determine the region of interest is based on the head position, gaze direction, location and duration based on existing driver monitoring systems. Based on this information, the car mounted camera(s) shall be aligned to the viewed object. This camera captured information along with the other relevant data (like location) shall be sent to the backend server via Telematics unit or smartphone connectivity for analysis. Backend Server analyses the received data and provides focused content to the user.The goal is to achieve targeted content delivery for effective product advertisement and marketing.
