“The automobile is a complex environment. Introducing new software and capabilities is highly complicated. In order to deliver the highest quality and get to market quickly, it is critical to work with an expert like Wind River.”
—Kelvin Du, Vice President, PATEO
Chinese automotive pioneer PATEO knew it needed to add iOS connectivity to their Android-based in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) system in order to reach the market of dedicated Apple fans. Staying in tune with consumers required acting fast. But PATEO also knew that cross-platform software engineering was not its special competency. In the face of tight deadlines, it turned to Wind River®.
HOW WIND RIVER HELPED
PATEO selected the Wind River Connectivity Solution Accelerator for Android to allow users to access multimedia content from popular iOS devices. The Wind River software enables external platforms to perform as if they were accessories to the docked Apple device and play content from it.
In a marketplace where infotainment platforms can be a deal breaker, Wind River helped PATEO add iOS connectivity to its IVI system quickly and safely, with no negative impact on the development schedule.
