AUPEO, a wholly owned subsidiary of Panasonic Corporation of North America announced the certification of the Personal Radio by AUPEO!® application for MirrorLink® by the Car Connectivity Consortium.
Building upon the AUPEO!® OneConnectSM content delivery platform, Aupeo users can now seamlessly connect the Personal Radio by AUPEO!® Android application with their MirrorLink®enabled in-car infotainment system to listen to their very own personalized audio streams and on-demand content. While driving there is no need to scan channels or browse for content.
A large number of car manufacturers including Mercedes-Benz, Volkswagen, Peugeot, Seat and Skoda are implementing MirrorLink® technology in their vehicles to address the needs of consumers. According to Strategy Analytics (Q3/2015), the technology is currently available in 5.5 million cars worldwide and this number is expected to grow to more than 12 million cars by 2017. For Aupeo this means a potential new market with a massive growth.
In Q3/15 Aupeo achieved the MirrorLink® certification for the European market. The finalization of the worldwide certification process is expected in a few more months due to the different security standards for the North American market.
