RACE Smartphone Connectivity
Automotive head unit connectivity technologies are becoming main stream in popular smartphones. Leading smartphone connectivity technologies such as CarPlay, Android Auto, MirrorLink and Miracast are demanded by automotive OEMs eager to provide downloadable application connectivity to their customers. These technologies provide a way for the smartphones to project an HMI to the head unit, with the head unit being able to control the smartphone applications using touch, knobs and steering wheel controls. Smartphone screen projection is currently available over USB and WiFi connectivity.
RACE Smartphone Connectivity suite from AllGo provides embedded SDKs that enable automotive head units to connect to and control applications running on smartphones and tablets. RACE Smartphone Connectivity suite consists of Android Auto Projection, CarPlay, MirrorLink and Miracast implementations.
