Open Automotive Alliance Unveiled at CES 2014 Wants Android in your Car

Google and several companies in the automotive and technology world have announced a new alliance at CES 2014. The Open Automotive Alliance wants to work together to get the Android ecosystem into cars cruising the streets around the world. The OAA has a number of high profile companies as members.

Member companies include Audi, GM, Google, Honda, Hyundai, and NVIDIA. Other technology and automotive companies are being invited to participate. The goal of the OAA is to bring the Android platform into the car starting this year. There is no firm indication when the first cars will land using Android.

The OAA expects vehicles using Android to hit the streets later this year. The OAA is dedicated to a common platform that will drive innovation and make technology in the car safer and more intuitive.

“We are very pleased to join this alliance with Google as a founding member because Honda is committed to providing the very best connected-car experience to our customers,” said Yoshiharu Yamamoto, president, CEO and director of Honda R&D Co., Ltd. “The Honda team is looking forward to collaborating with Google and all OAA members to help advance the safety, value and ease of use of connected-car technologies.”
