Abalta Technologies plans to integrate Amazon Alexa into its WebLink connected car platform, enabling drivers to access Alexa on WebLink-enabled in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) systems.
Abalta is one of the leading providers of technology and infotainment solutions and has years of experience of creating and delivering software products, solutions and services for the global connected car.
Company’s WebLink and custom connected car engineering services empower car manufacturers and suppliers claim to create fully customized infotainment services. By integrating Alexa into WebLink, drivers with a supported car radio or headunit can enjoy simple, seamless access to Alexa directly from their vehicle.
Drivers simply need to pair their smartphone, link their Amazon account, and hit the road. Once enabled, customers can ask to play music, get directions, check news and weather, control smart home devices, and more – all while keeping their hands on the wheel and eyes on the road.
Alexa was also available on WebLink-supported radios and head units at CES.
