LG Electronics (LG) and Qualcomm Technologies Inc., a subsidiary of Qualcomm Incorporated, announced plans to work together to further develop webOS Auto, LG’s connected in-vehicle infotainment system. Harnessing the combined strengths of webOS Auto and Qualcomm Snapdragon Automotive Development Platform (ADP), the companies aim to create and advance a more convenient in-car experience for drivers and passengers alike.

LG’s webOS Auto is a Linux-powered platform that leverages LG’s expertise in-vehicle infotainment for the next generation of connected automobiles. LG’s recently announced webOS Open Source Edition 2.0, which adds automotive infotainment functionality, allows developers to experience some of the innovative features that will be incorporated in webOS Auto.

The Snapdragon ADP features infotainment technologies supported through artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities, advanced graphics for high-resolution multiple display configurations and ultra HD media streaming. Snapdragon ADP is designed to provide a comprehensive hardware and software environment for the rapid development of high performing and power-efficient automotive cockpit platforms, including passenger and rear-seat entertainment (RSE) displays.
