The Cooperative, Connected and Automated Mobility (CCAM) encloses several services to enhance the driving and travel experience. The infotainment systems of vehicles can be used to spread these CCAM services. Indeed, the most recent vehicles offer infotainment systems with already some specific environments, such as Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, that can further facilitate the provision of CCAM-devoted services. The exploitation of these assets can foster the creation of CCAM mobile apps that enhance the feature of current infotainment systems.

The aim of the thesis is to develop a mobile application for the vehicle infotainment system that targets the implementation of the most significant CCAM services, such as road event alerts or smart route planning.

The first part of the thesis will be devoted to analysing the different infotainment systems and related automotive environments. This analysis will be the basis of the design of the mobile application’s framework to be developed. The second part of the thesis will indeed focus on the development of such a framework together with some basic CCAM services. The mobile application framework will be tested within the framework of a European research project.

The student will have the possibility to work in an informal cutting-edge research laboratory using the latest available technologies in the CCAM field.
