VW And LG To Jointly Develop Connected Car Platform

Volkswagen and LG Electronics announced their collaboration in developing a connected car platform that will allow cars to communicate with other devices.

Over the course of the next few years the two companies will develop technologies to bring together future connected cars and smart home devices, allowing drivers to control and monitor them from the road.

“Volkswagen is pressing on with the digitalization of its brands,” said Thomas Form head of VW’s Electronics and Vehicle Research . “We look forward to working with LG and to developing in future simple, easy-to-use smart home solutions for our customers integrated into our vehicle systems.”

Other highlights of this collaboration include the development of a notification center that delivers notices in an intuitive and safe manner and also provides tailored real-time recommendations for the drivers to respond and a next-generation infotainment system, suited for connected cars.

“LG Electronics and Volkswagen are teaming up to develop the next generation of connected car platform that allows wide integration with smart home services and adoption of open IoT connectivity technologies,” said Richard Choi, head of the LG Cloud Center. “We think LG’s expertise in smart technology together with Volkswagen’s leadership in the automotive space will revolutionize the way drivers interact with their vehicles.”

The new agreement is the latest chapter of their long-standing relationship which includes LG supplying the holographic display, connected smart watch, taillights and rear camera of the 2015 Giugiaro GEA Concept.
