The New Volvo Infotainment System Powered by Android (Video)
Volvo has announced a collaboration with Neonode for a ultimate performance in-vehicle infotainment system. Such solutions are becoming more and more widespread and factory provided as technology standards rise and grow on the market.
The new infotainment system coming from Volovo is called the Sensus Connected Touch and the naming should be enough to give you an idea of its main feature. The system is able to provide a touch panel that runs the Android operating system. Drivers can get web-connected GPS navigation results and can stream audio from the Internet using various applications.
The system has been optimized so that the driver is able to keep his eyes on the road and control it with minimum interaction. The screen is 100% transparent and has no glare and is not affected by electrical interference. It also provides a more unique characteristic, the ability for the vehicle to play audio content describing some of the sites you see as you drive through the city.
