Google, NVIDIA and automakers form open alliance to bring Android platform to cars

Audi, GM, Google, Honda, Hyundai and NVIDIA have formed 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.

The OAA approach offers openness, customization and scale. This open development model and common platform will allow automakers to more easily bring advanced technology to their drivers, and create new opportunities for developers to serve drivers and passengers in a safe and scalable way.

The worlds of consumer and automotive technologies have never been more closely aligned, and this alliance will only pave the way for faster innovation. Working toward a common ecosystems benefits driver safety above all.

—Ricky Hudi, Head of Electrics/Electronics Development at Audi AG

OAA members share a vision for the connected car. Timing from each automaker will vary, but the first cars with Android integration should be out by the end of this year.
