The Volkswagen Group and LG Electronics are to jointly develop a next-generation connected car service platform. The two companies will work together on Volkswagen’s Cross-Over-Platform, which is aimed at enhanced vehicle connectivity and convenience. Using the latest in cloud technology, it will offer drivers seamless digital access to extensive features such as smart home and location-based services.
Technologies developed through the partnership will bring together the connected car and the smart home so that drivers are able to control and monitor smart devices in their homes – such as lights, security systems and domestic appliances – from out on the road.
The two companies will also develop a context-sensitive notification center that can deliver messages in an intuitive and safe manner and provide optimized recommendations to the driver in real time, as well as also developing next-generation infotainment technology for connected cars.
