Abstract

Presented herein is a system and method that provide for targeted in-vehicle multimedia use based on information from various sensors onboard (and external to) the vehicle that an external cloud-based system uses to filter a multimedia library into a targeted list from which a viewer in the vehicle can choose. This involves performing a search though a media library and returning the results based on external factors of selection.

ABSTRACT

    Presented herein is a system and method that provide for targeted in-vehicle multimedia use based on information from various sensors onboard (and external to) the vehicle that an external cloud-based system uses to filter a multimedia library into a targeted list from which a viewer in the vehicle can choose. This involves performing a search though a media library and returning the results based on external factors of selection.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION

    Existing multimedia search systems involve manual input and user selection of search criteria but do not use the variable inputs that can be provided by sensors such as GPS, light, temperature, or sound sensors. Current multimedia use, in-vehicle or otherwise, relies on user choice and users inevitably encounter the problem of interrupted viewing when the program is longer than the time remaining in the trip. A system that takes into account expected trip time and delays, along with data from any sensors attached to the system, is advantageous to the user in terms of time saved and to the content provider in terms of increased viewership.

Figure 1. System block diagram

    Figure 1 above depicts a block diagram of the envisaged system. Data is gathered from the sensors, such a GPS sensor, temperature sensor, sound sensor, light sensor, on the vehicle as well as external to the vehicle, such as weather sensors along a highway. The GPS sensor may be part of a vehicle navigation system that is aware of the time remaining in the current trip. The data is compiled by the vehicle computer system or a hand-held mobile device in the vehicle, to form a search request. The search request is sent to a cloud-based multimedia content provider via a wireless wide area network (WAN), e.g., cellular network, transceiver that may be hosted by a mobile user device or built into the vehicle.

    The cloud-based multimedia content provider processes the request and the results are presented to a user in the vehicle who can select the content to be streamed or downloaded to a device in the vehicle, such as the vehicle entertainment system or a mobile device (e.g., tablet, SmartPhone, etc.) in the vehicle. The system is able to take into account external factors in order to continually update the content proposal. Because the relevant external factors may change
