In the last three years, a number of automotive Augmented Reality (AR) concepts and demonstrators have been presented, all looking for an interpretation of what AR in a car may look like. In October 2013, Mercedes-Benz exhibited to a public audience the AR In-Vehicle Infotainment (AR-IVI) system aimed at defining an overall in-vehicle electric/electronic (E/E) architecture for augmented reality rather than showing specific use cases. In this paper, we explain the requirements and design decisions that lead to the systemdesign, and we share the challenges and experiences in developing the AR-IVI system in the prototype vehicle. Based on our experiences, we give an outlook on future software and E/E architectural challenges of in-vehicle augmented reality.
