HTML5 is short-hand for a combination of new HTML, CSS, and JavaScript standards that are revolutionizing applications in the desktop, server, and mobile worlds. Accordingly, HTML5 is also poised to become the next “killer” technology for car infotainment systems, particularly those that require sophisticated user interfaces (UIs) and integration with mobile devices.

In this session, we discuss:

  • what problems HTML5 solves
  • and why it promises to become the foundation for next gen in-vehicle UIs, augmenting or possibly replacing existing technologies.

We identify the building blocks of HTML5 and how they’re used, and explore when a system needs a web browser rather than an HTML engine. Most importantly, we help you cut through the confusion to understand why the future of in-vehicle infotainment is HTML5.

Estimated length:
1 hour, including Q & A.

Who should attend:

This seminar will be of interest to automotive software engineers and managers as well as consumer device makers who are involved in the automotive industry.

There are no prerequisites for this session.
