SEATTLE, USA: Airbiquity, a global leader in connected car services delivery, has added two additional premium content providers, Reuters and Yelp, to its Choreo cloud-based connected car services delivery platform.
With these integrations, both Reuters, the world's largest multimedia news provider, and Yelp, the company that connects consumers with local businesses, will be made available to the company's automotive manufacturer customers deploying the Driver Experience infotainment delivery offering. Leveraging the Airbiquity content portfolio, automotive manufacturers can introduce Reuters and Yelp content into their branded connected car programs meeting the infotainment needs of their drivers while helping to differentiate their in-vehicle experience from competitors.
As with other applications which have recently been integrated into the Choreo platform, both the Reuters and Yelp apps will feature tight integration between the application services of the content providers and prevailing smartphone technologies, including support for wireless Bluetooth hands-free calling and native vehicle navigation system integration. This level of integration serves to minimize driver distractions as manual text search is disabled in favor of voice search if the system senses the vehicle is in motion.
