Audi, GM, Google, Honda, Hyundai and NVIDIA have joined together to form the Open Automotive Alliance (OAA), a global alliance of technology and auto industry leaders committed to bringing the Android platform to cars starting in 2014. The OAA is dedicated to a common platform that will drive innovation, and make technology in the car safer and more intuitive for everyone.

A potentially very lucrative market.

I don't think Android should become the standard.

I'd rather have the car provide a standardized set of interfaces so that any OS, not just Android, could work with it.


I think you might find that quite often the car itself runs Linux. Automotive grade Linux.

Toyota Joins Linux Foundation

Linux is very, very good at providing a standardised set of interfaces so that any OS, not just Android, could work with it.
