Open Automotive Handset Alliance Signals The Era of Smarter Interconnected Devices Power by Artificial Intelligence

Google Teams up for Open Automotive handset Alliance : Auto Industry Heading Towards More Intelligent Interconnected Devices

Just recently at CES 2014, Google announced that it had tied up with GM, Honda, Audi, Hyundai, and chipmaker Nvidia to create the Open Automotive Alliance – with the intent of bring Android-powered in-car systems to market before 2014 is over. 

 While the concept of having Android in the car is not new (several touchscreen Android car stereos are already available in the market and several existing systems can interface with Android phones), the Open Automotive Alliance aims to make the whole experience more seamless. Some of the enhanced functionality that you can expect is easier connectivity (streaming internet radio in the car), expandability (enhancing functionality with car-specific apps), multi information displays and easier vehicle diagnostics.
