Automotive Android


Car maker Saab premiered the first Google Android-based in-car infotainment system at the Geneva Motor Show, called IQon.

Using an 8” touch-screen connected to a 3G or 4G internet service, drivers and passengers will be able to run apps in their car while on the move.

Saab will turn over 500 signals from sensors around the car to app developers, allowing them to take advantage of the open source platform to build apps specifically for Saab vehicles. Once approved by Saab, the apps will be available from an online store.

The Geneva Motor Show runs from March 3-13 2011.
