VNC Automotive to demonstrate its next generation vehicle connectivity and telematics software at CES 2019 with Automotive Grade Linux

VNC Automotive joins 15+ companies in the Automotive Grade Linux booth to showcase how open source software is transforming the automotive industry 

December 11th, 2018. Cambridge, UK – VNC Automotive today announced that it will participate in the Automotive Grade Linux (AGL) booth at CES 2019 in the Westgate Hotel Pavilion, 1614. CES 2019 takes place in Las Vegas, NV, from January 8-11, 2019. 

AGL is an open source project at the Linux Foundation, that is bringing together automakers, suppliers and technology companies to accelerate the development and adoption of a fully open software stack for all technology in the vehicle, from infotainment to autonomous driving. 

In the AGL booth, VNC Automotive will be demonstrating its globally deployed smart device, car and cloud connectivity solutions – together with an industry first showing of iOS full screen mirroring and smart device interactivity, directly from the dash. 

Drivers and passengers can now access a full portfolio of applications in a safe and convenient way, while driving and through the rear-seat displays. Unlike existing standards that are often limited to navigation and audio playback, it enables a whole portfolio of entertainment and productivity-based applications including instantaneous media streaming, business applications, voice assistants and parking applications.

This functionality is now available as a standard feature within its production grade, industry certified software stack, for both iOS and Android devices.

“Given our own open source roots and our long experience with establishing and promoting standards within the automotive industry we are very excited about supporting the AGL presence at CES 2019” commented Tom Blackie, CEO at VNC Automotive.
