Jungo and RealVNC have based their solution on VNC Mobile Solution for Automotive, supporting Terminal Mode, based on VNC, a specification published by Consumer Electronics for Automotive (CE4A,) an automotive industry working group comprising Audi, BMW, Daimler, Porsche and Volkswagen and Nokia.
The combined Automotive Connectivity Middleware from Jungo and VNC Mobile Solution for Automotive from RealVNC enables the head unit of the car infotainment system to automatically detect, access and control mobile devices in the vehicle and display their content on the screen in the dashboard.
The design combines VNC (remote access and control) technology from RealVNC and Jungo Automotive Connectivity Middleware featuring device connectivity, media and network management, USB and Bluetooth protocol stacks from Jungo.
RealVNC Mobile Solution for Automotive supports a wide range of mobile operating systems and legacy devices, as well as also providing support for those handsets that support Terminal Mode.
Terminal Mode allows users to display their smartphone screen on the infotainment screen and control their devices from the dashboard, without altering the interface and user experience.
One of the key benefits of Terminal Mode, according to its proponents, is that it automatically filters out unsafe applications so that they can’t be used while driving.
Note: Jungo Automotive Connectivity Middleware will be demonstrated at the Jungo booth at CES. located in the USB TechZone, booth 36505, in South Hall 4 (upper level) of the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC.)
