Android goes on the road: Google has created a Public Automobile Alliance


Google announced the creation of the Open automobile alliance ( Open Automotive Alliance ) with automakers Audi, GM, Honda, Hyundai and developer processors Nvidia. In other words, the company integrates the Android operating system in the car. This confirms the recent rumors about Google and Audi cooperation in the development of automotive electronics based on Android.

If all goes according to plan, the first cars with Android operating system on board will go on sale in late 2014. In the future, the group plans to use this initiative more automakers and technology companies. In a press release Open Automotive Alliance stated that now all attention is focused on developing new functionality for Android, which allows developers to easily customize their applications for use in vehicles. The Alliance is working with the National Authority for Road Safety (NHTSA) in order to ensure safe use of the system in cars.

It seems, Google has high hopes for the introduction of Android in cars. Here I wrote in my blog head of Android Engineering Patrick Brady:

It would be great to use your favorite applications and music through built-in controls and on-board vehicle display. Together with our partners we develop OAA new forms of integration with Android-devices and adapting Android for use in vehicles in order to increase safety and driving comfort.

It is worth noting that Google is not the only technology company swung to cars. Previously, Apple announced plans to integrate its operating system iOS in cars brands BMW, Mercedes, GM, Land Rover, Jaguar, Audi, Toyota, Chrysler and Honda. Microsoft, in turn, is working closely with Ford.

It seems that automakers will not stop your choice on someone one. Honda has supported the initiative of Apple, and Chevrolet has added to the lineup in 2015 support LTE high-speed network and application store AppShop, vaguely reminiscent of the iOS App Store and Google Play.
