Cariad gets a strong partner at its side to make cars and mobile gadgets work better together
Cariad, Volkswagen’s software subsidiary, has a new partner from China. The new collaboration was revealed a few days ago, with Cariad and Vivo now working on joint products and solutions. Together we want to improve the connection between cars and smartphones.
According to the two companies’ public justification for the deal, together they want to “create a seamless and frictionless digital mobility experience for consumers.” Seamless connectivity of cars and small mobile devices is an important element for the future.
Vivo and Cariad focus on this partnership the first in the Chinese market. But the insights and solutions will certainly be attractive to other markets in the long run.
“Vivo strives to contribute to the progress and development of the entire industry with an open and collaborative environmental mindset,” the group said of the collaboration with Cariad.
In general, this topic is currently gaining momentum. Nio is developing its own Android smartphone and Xiaomi has even developed a new operating system for its future ecosystem.
