Polestar, the Swedish automaker that owns Volvo Car Group, working closely with Google to make the infotainment system of its cars as convenient and functional.
Together, the two companies started with electric Polestar 2, the first on the market vehicles with the multimedia system on the Android platform, which has a Google Assistant, Google Maps and the Google Play Store, according to the Auto Informant with reference to the press service of the company.
The system was so good that Polestar is not going to change the Android platform to another, and plans to expand its integration with onboard systems. The company believes that this will create “a truly personalised and contextual experience in their cars.” That is the whole internal environment of the vehicle automatically adapts to personal preferences of the driver.
If now the user can save multiple profiles with your personal settings (for example, setting mirrors, climate system, seats) and select the desired during the trip, in the future all cabin space will be adapt to the driver before it will lead to car. For this, the system reads the data from the keychain Polestar Digital Key itself will set the desired profile, the driver will just need to confirm it.
The multimedia system will also get new opportunities that will be available not only for driver but also for passengers. For example, when Parking the vehicle and during charging passengers will be able to stream or download video from popular applications. Also, Google Assistant will learn to understand more languages and dialects, allowing him to lead a full dialogue with the driver. Also the screens will change its brightness and maintenance depending on the condition and response of the driver. If the driver is a long time to watch the display and not on the road, multimedia will warn him about it.
Another area in which Polestar will continue to cooperate with Google’s increased security. It will be implemented through the integration of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) with Google Maps for safer maneuvers in the way.
