FUJITSU TEN Joins the Open Automotive Alliance™ (OAA)
KOBE, Japan -- June 27, 2014
FUJITSU TEN LIMITED has joined the Open Automotive Alliance™ (OAA). The OAA is
a global alliance of technology and auto industry leaders committed to
bringing the Android™ to cars starting in 2014. The OAA is dedicated to a
common platform that will drive innovation, and make technology in the car
safer and more intuitive for everyone.
Android Auto™ which was announced at the Google I/O brings all the apps
drivers know and love, through an interface that’s built for driving. After
connecting an Android phone to a compatible car, drivers will be able to
“project” their experience onto their car’s in-dash display, giving them
access to apps and services which have been optimized for the car with voice
input and glanceable controls.
We are going to provide the in-vehicle infotainment systems equipped with this
function as a product for an automobile manufacturer at the fiscal 2015.
Through this alliance, FUJITSU TEN believes that the ecosystem surrounding
in-vehicle infotainment systems and Android devices will expand comfort and
convenience for customers. Based on our years of experience developing
products in this field, we believe it will lead to improvements in the
manufacturing of vehicles.
