From Device to Dashboard: PATEO Uses Wind River to Deliver iOS-Powered In-Car Infotainment

Consumers love their iOS gadgets. So much, in fact, that they expect to be able to use them everywhere—even in their cars. Now, China's pioneering automotive technology provider, PATEO, is enabling consumers to access content from their Apple® iPad®, iPhone® and iPod® devices through their Android-based in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) systems. Wind River® Connectivity Solution Accelerator for Android makes it possible to deliver a rich multimedia experience from the device to the dashboard.

Wind River Combines Automotive, Embedded, and Open-Source Expertise

The Wind River software enables a car's central IVI unit to perform like an accessory to display and play content from a docked iOS device. With a user-customizable IVI home screen, users can arrange their application icons in the way that is most convenient for them, putting frequently accessed apps within easy reach.

"The increasing demand for richer experiences in the car has made it vital to track the technologies that resonate with consumers and bring them to the automotive market," says PATEO Vice President Kelvin Du. With decades of proven expertise in automotive, embedded, and open-source technologies, Wind River is helping innovators like PATEO keep pace with consumer tastes and turn revolutionary ideas into reality.
