During the upcoming Consumer Electronics Expo, South Korean-based electronics company LG is expected to showoff its newly upgraded webOS Auto ecosystem for connected cars.
LG’s connected car uses Adient and webOS, a Linux-based automotive infotainment platform that essentially serves as the connected hub for connected cars.
The system provides passengers with services such as internet radio and video streaming at their seats.
Qualcomm, Microsoft, Qt and Luxoft, all of which have worked with LG to develop webOs Auto, will also exhibit along with LG.
The platform is set to compete with other car infotainment platforms, such as Apple’s CarPlay and Google’s Android Auto.
“We will strategically cooperate with various global technology companies to continuously strengthen the webOS Auto ecosystem and expand our influence as a global leader in next-generation automotive software,” stated Park Il-Pyeong, CEO of LG Electronics.
To expand the ecosystem, LG has partnered with content companies including iHeart Radio, Mapbox and Cerence, which will be provided through webOS Auto.
