OS.CAR is the new platform for digital value-added services in passenger cars and commercial vehicles. It allows virtually unrestricted access not only to movies and games but as well to apps within the system that link web-based data and information with vehicle information. OS.CAR can be integrated into existing infotainment system platforms and head units and run on various operating systems.
Automotive world and Internet lately have grown together to a degree that makes connectivity a matter of course even in vehicles. Yet, so far a manufacturer-neutral platform has been missing. The product to fill this gap is OS.CAR, a solution developed by NetRange thanks to its years of expertise in OTT technology.
“We are proud to present OS.CAR, a turnkey, neutral connected car platform”, said Jan Wendt, CEO of NetRange. “OS.CAR offers our OEM clients utmost flexibility, extremely short time to market scenarios and the final control of the product quality. These and many other advantages come with a clear competitive edge consisting of the huge amount of apps and services already available worldwide.”
OS.CAR gives OEMs the opportunity to stand out from the competition and bond customers even more strongly with their brands. Despite the fact that the platform is manufacturer-neutral, the user interface can be customized according to the respective OEM’s brand design. Standardized interfaces allow to integrate web services with vehicle data and thus to create a unique ecosystem, whereas data protection and security are treated with highest priority. Furthermore, all rights to use the content have been cleared – OEMs and content providers do not need to enter into separate agreements with each other.
