Abstract

The scope of this research initiative addresses what is best practice for delivering mobile applications while ensuring a safe, consistent experience given the differing communications standards, operating systems and hardware limitations of existing and prospective personal communications devices.  It is assumed the scope of this initiative is limited to exploration of applications for consumer devices only, not on-board OEM equipment/applications that may use a passenger's personal communications device to provide network connectivity.  However, the ability of a personal device to communicate with their vehicle to gather information pertinent to their travel or provide feedback will be explored.  A series of interviews will be conducted offering multiple points of view on the capabilities of mobile devices and software, both current and projected.  We will identify the top four mobile application platforms, develop a map of the hardware and software capabilities of each of the leading mobile devices, and classify the capabilities as they relate to IntelliDrive.  Finally, based on the research above, develop a map to project where the top mobile platforms may be heading as it related to the mission of the IntelliDrive program.
