What Is Rear Seat Entertainment?

Rear Seats Entertainment (RSE) is an emerging automotive infotainment application that heavily relies on processing graphics, video, and audio. Television, DVD, the Internet, digital radio, and other multimedia content sources are all incorporated into the RSE systems.
Rear Seat Entertainment is the components of a vehicle's entertainment system that passengers can access in the backseat.
VNC Automotive claims that the gradual shift toward advanced levels of autonomous functionality will herald the biggest shift in how the technology is integrated and utilized. However, screen size and resolution are obvious enhancements to the in-vehicle experience. A portion of the means might make actual screen innovation excess.
Role Of Rear Seat Entertainment
Peter Galek, director of automotive product engineering at VNC, stated, "Future adoption of Level 3, 4, and 5 autonomous vehicles could result in us spending more time in our cars, but less time physically driving them."The role of the RSE and the vehicle could be completely altered if driver accountability and road focus were completely eliminated.
Pandemic Brings Evolution
“The way we consume media at home and on the go has already been altered by digital TV, streaming, and gaming. This trend is gradually becoming more prevalent in our personal transportation, too.
The data suggest that streaming services in the UK alone have seen 12 million new sign-ups during COVID-19 and that viewing times on these services have increased by 71% compared to 2019's figures. However, we are nearing a revolutionary age for content consumption in-vehicle. The pandemic has played its part in accelerating the evolution of our media consumption habits.
Rear Seat Entertainment, With Full Safety
The Rear Seat Entertainment is anticipated to offer excellent video and audio quality, a user-friendly interface, and ease of use. Users enter the vehicle's environment using various devices that interface with the RSE system, such as smartphones, MPEG players, cameras, and so on, in addition to the built-in multimedia sources.
Rear Seat Entertainment Design And Xylon Solution
FPGAs from Xylon Solutions and RSE Design are gaining popularity in RSE design due to their unparalleled configurability and scalability, ease of adoption for new and upcoming standards, and ability to absorb a lot of logic from electronic boards.
RSE systems with strong scaling capabilities and open architectures can be designed on top of the cost-to-performance ratio of Xilinx's low-cost chips. This foundation is further enhanced with Xilinx integration tools that are simple to use and Xylon logicBRICKS IP cores that have robust software support and perfectly integrate with the Xilinx Platform Studio and EDK integration tools. This software support makes it possible to develop attractive Rear Seat Entertainment GUIs efficiently by making it compatible with several third-party GUI builders.
Rear Seat Entertainment Demo System
Xylon RSE Demo Systems Xylon has created several demo RSE systems to demonstrate the capabilities of its design services, the logiCRAFT hardware platforms, and the logicBRICKS IP library.
All audio and video system components are controlled by a single Xilinx Spartan-3 chip with integrated logicBRICKS IPs.The logiTAP installation CD contains the complete Demo Box RSE Xilinx EDK project and evaluation logicBRICKS IP cores and software application sources. The Xylon logiCRAFT2 platform supports this FPGA design. The Demo Box is no longer available.
Using the logiCRAFT2 as the master infotainment board and two logiCRAFT3 boards embedded in the car headrests, Xylon has developed another demonstration automotive Rear Seat Entertainment system. The "satellite" boards deliver audio and video content of the logiCRAFT3.The APIX Automotive Pixel Link, a product of the Innova Semiconductors company, is used to transfer control data and audio and video streams to the Rear Seat Entertainment headrest units. This embedded high-speed Gbps digital link is used to transfer data.
The same link transfers low-data-rate content like push-button status, touch-screen data, and data from a remote controller. Only two twisted pair lines are required for the link, which may also power the headrest units. As a result, infotainment wiring costs are significantly lower.
