Intel said its processors will soon be powering the infotainment systems in new Nissan Motor Company vehicles. Intel Atom, which is used in netbooks and smartphones, will be used in select Nissan production vehicles beginning in 2013.

The in-vehicle infotainment system (IVI) system features a twin-display that was unveiled in the Infiniti LE, a luxury zero-emissions concept vehicle, at the New York International Auto Show today. The twin-display will enable the driver to see vital traffic information and navigation while simultaneously delivering entertainment, such as movies, to passengers.

Andy Palmer, executive vice president, Nissan Motor Company and in charge of Infiniti, said, "The twin-display, developed with Intel technology inside, is a breakthrough feature that presents driving-related information in the right place and at the right time."

"Nissan chose Intel as a technology partner to jointly develop rich in-vehicle experiences that will keep Nissan drivers and passengers informed, entertained and productive while maintaining optimal safety."

The partnership also includes joint research focussed on mobile device-to-vehicle fusion, cloud-based services for vehicles, and vehicle video surveillance via smartphones, as well as vehicle access and control via smartphones.

The announcement follows additional efforts towards realising Intel's vision for the connected car including the recent creation of the Rs.495.05 crore ($100 million )Intel Capital Connected Car Fund.
