Years after Google’s Open Handset Alliance brought Android into cellphones, the company forms the Open Automotive Alliance – and that as you might guess is aimed at bringing Google’s operating system to automobiles. The alliance consists of Google & NVidia together with Audi, Honda, Hyundai & GM.
The objective of the alliance is to push forward innovation in cars and to create an open ecosystem for safer and more intuitive automobile technology. Fruits of the said project will already be realized as early as this year – 2014, so that’s definitely something to look forward to. Probably coming soon in a car dealer near you – a Honda City with Google Integration, a Hyundai Tucson 4G or an Audi Nexus Q7.
