“To get to market quickly and control our costs, we needed a strong partner with expertise in the automotive industry and with Android. We knew we could not do this project ourselves.”
—T.K. Tan, Managing Director, Clarion Malaysia
Clarion Malaysia needed to integrate its in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) system with the Internet of Things for a rich in-car experience that was safe, simple, and controlled. It needed to build its customized AX1 solution on the Android platform and make it work seamlessly with all the devices and services consumers expect today.
HOW WIND RIVER HELPED
Wind River® provided the software integration and project management skills that helped Clarion create a ground-breaking solution that combines an A/V navigation system, a streaming entertainment platform, and Internet access on a customized Android 2.3.7 platform. The Wind River Automotive Solutions team helped anticipate, isolate, and correct problems before they impacted the project.
Working closely with the Wind River Automotive Solutions team, Clarion was able to deliver the innovative, multi-featured AX1 in-vehicle entertainment platform on time and on budget. In addition to providing GPS navigation, hands-free calling, Micro SD, and USB ports, the AX1 enables users to buy, download, and sync music from an online store.
