Open Automotive Alliance Brings Android to Cars

The Open Automotive Alliance, a new industry group backed by Google, GM, Audi, Honda, Hyundai and Nvidia, has been launched with a mission to extend the Android ecosystem into cars.

The OAA aims to accelerate auto innovation by leveraging Android's openness, customization and scale. The group will pursue an open development model and common platform to allow automakers to more easily bring cutting-edge technology to their products. The first cars with Android integration are expected by the end of this year.
