RealVNC to showcase latest in-car tech at Telematics Detroit

8th May 2014: RealVNC, the premier MirrorLink™ supplier, is taking its leading MirrorLink demo to Telematics Detroit 2014 from 4-5th June. The demo features its MirrorLink 1.1 certified technology VNC® Automotive.

RealVNC will be demonstrating its MirrorLink solution, which features multiple simultaneous video streaming to several rear seat entertainment screens, from one mobile device. It also enables users to stream separate phone applications from one device to different screens. This means that the driver is able to launch navigation maps while passengers in the rear of the car can access different applications such as videos or games. RealVNC’s technology also enables multiple mobile devices to connect to the vehicle simultaneously and stream content from any passenger’s phone, such as videos and music.

Safety is vital in the industry and the technology allows the mobile device to be controlled via either the infotainment touch screen, vehicle bezel keys, steering wheel switches or by voice command. Screen blanking options are also available, which means selected phone applications are not available on the move.

“RealVNC is proud to be showcasing the development of mobile to vehicle connectivity, and the growing success and global adoption of our VNC Automotive technology at Telematics Detroit,” said Tom Blackie, Vice President Mobile at RealVNC. “2014 is set to be another exciting year for RealVNC and the industry, with full production cycles, as automotive OEMs line-fit this latest technology in new vehicles. RealVNC’s technology is underpinning most of the commercial MirrorLink Certified products, and our software is available in the majority of these products.”
