Nomadic Device Connectivity Using the AMI-C HMI Architecture 2009-01-0959

Nomadic mobile consumer electronic (CE) devices are growing in functionality and popularity. Some of these devices, such as navigation systems, are being used in vehicles as a lower cost alternative to integrated vehicle options. Other devices, such as MP-3 players, are becoming the preferred source of music on the go. Wireless nomadic devices are now capable of accessing E-mail and other Internet-based functions. Automakers are beginning to recognize the importance of integrating support for such devices to facilitate their use in vehicles. A key element of this integration is the ability of the vehicle HMI to support both the operation of nomadic devices as well as the display of content from such devices. This paper presents an example of how a nomadic device can be properly integrated with the vehicle HMI using the AMI-C HMI architecture. In particular, a commercial nomadic device was used to stream MP3 content to a vehicle radio using an 802.11 wireless connection. The goal of this effort was to produce a “good user experience” similar to that of commercial, integrated product. The result is a compelling implementation of MP3 streaming audio playback that users perceive as being built into the vehicle
