LG Joins the open automotive alliance

LG logoLG Electronics became the newest member of the Open Automotive Alliance (OAA), joining global automakers and technology companies including Google, General Motors, Hyundai, Honda, and NVIDIA.

From 2012, the alliance has been dedicated to introducing greater connectivity into cars through the application of the Android platform.

LG showcased its new range of audio, visual and navigation (AVN) system solutions for connected cars at Google I/O 2014, the annual developer conference held in San Francisco. LG's advanced AVN system, which is expected to be available by 2015, enables drivers to connect their Android device via a single cable to vehicles featuring Google's in-car interface platform to access their smartphones' features and functions. For example, drivers can view and control their favorite smartphone navigation apps or search their mobile phone's contacts to make calls and send text messages through the in-car display.

"As a top technology company with a strong mobile business, LG has a great deal to contribute to the connected car space," said Jong-rak Lim, vice president and head of In-vehicle Infotainment Development at LG Electronics? Vehicle Components Company. "LG will strive to strengthen its cooperation with OAA partners to bring connected vehicles to consumers sooner rather than later."
