Accelerating the integration of mobile and auto. The roadmap to the Auto-mobile.
Two important announcements: (1) February's meeting has been moved to February 30th—better known as Monday, March 2nd to accommodate travel schedules. (2) March's meeting will be Mobile Portland's last meeting. More details.
Our vehicles are no longer simply used to get from point A to point B. They are sophisticated computers that are increasingly connected to our devices and the greater Internet.
Now technology industry leaders are attempting to move into the automobile. Both Apple with CarPlay and Google with Android Auto have made attempts to convince automakers to integrate more closely with their mobile ecosystems.
What should an automaker do? Build an Apple-only or Android-only vehicle? Find a third way to support both?
We're honored to have Matt Jones, the Head of Future Infotainment at Jaguar Land Rover, at Mobile Portland this month to help us understand how Jaguar Land Rover is tackling this.
Matt will be looking at the state of the current automotive platforms, the next steps with open platforms for development, and planning for the inevitable disruption of customer demands based on the mobile ecosystem.
Please RSVP to attend this meeting.
