Luxoft has announced that it has created the world’s first Google Android-based original equipment manufacturers (OEM) software platform for automotive infotainment, LUXnet.
The platform delivers a successful combination of social networking capabilities with navigation, multimedia and connectivity services, including dynamic points of interest (POIs) and voice over IP (VoIP).
LUXnet is designed for in-car social networking and dynamic navigation use, and comes with integrated Facebook and Twitter capabilities. Its easy-to-use interface is designed with car ergonomics in mind. Additional LUXnet features include: Internet connectivity, support for downloadable applications, intelligent data caching and geocaching.
LUXnet is an Android-based OEM software platform for head units and personal navigation devices (PNDs). OEMs can take the easy-to-deploy, extendable LUXnet platform and rapidly develop a new product by customizing it, and thus drastically cutting the development costs and time to market, while Luxoft’s professional services can further accelerate the development process. Using the LUXnet platform, OEMs can develop a variety of products, including but not limited to PND, head units and rear seat entertainment systems.
