Android Car Dashboard Is Coming Courtesy Of Google And Fiat Chrysler
Vehicles have become part of the daily necessities of life. The same is true in terms of technology. Given this fact, the consumer demands for smart vehicles have steadily been on the rise. Android Auto is one of the infotainment systems that have a high demand and many consumers find themselves disappointed because the models they want do not offer the technology. Now, it appears that consumers have to worry no more as an Android car dashboard is coming thanks to Google and Fiat Chrysler.
The Dying Days Of Automaker Infotainment System
Given the rise in popularity of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, it appears that the built-in infotainment systems of different automakers are in their last days as reported by CNET. One of the reasons for this is because the Android Auto provides a more flexible option for users in terms of connectivity due to wider range of applications.
The Google And Chrysler Partnership
Fortune reported that the partnership between Google and Fiat Chrysler was just recently announced. It involves the two working on enabling the Chrysler 300 sedan to have a dashboard with an Android operating system for its infotainment. It was mentioned that this will be shown in the upcoming Consumer Electronics Show (CES).
Why It Matters
The main purpose of the collaboration between the technology company and automaker is to make things more convenient for the consumers. "Google is committed to building Android as a turn-key automotive platform that integrates deeply with the vehicle in a safe and seamless way", said Patrick Brady, Director of Android Engineering at Google in a report. It was mentioned that the automaker also gains advantage in terms of keeping its customers happy.
A Concept For Now
Those that are interested to see what this partnership will bring can see things for themselves at the upcoming CES 2017. Given the fact that it is still a concept, consumers should not get their hopes up too high just yet. At this point, checking out what the concept really brings to the table first would be the wise thing to do.
