RealVNC showcases VNC® Automotive at Telematics Japan 2012

21st September 2012: RealVNC will be showcasing its in-vehicle mobile technology at Telematics Japan in Tokyo next month. VNC® Automotive can automatically detect, access and control virtually any mobile device or desktop computer from a vehicle's touch-screen or fixed input devices such as steering wheel switches and head unit buttons or menus.

With VNC Automotive, drivers can access their mobile content, such as navigation applications, traffic updates, music libraries and internet radio stations, whilst on the move. The technology also enables cloud connectivity to a remote desktop and other cloud based applications, as well as providing a link for automotive OEM's to access vehicle data and systems from a remote location.

In addition, RealVNC will be demonstrating VNC Automotive's extensive capabilities to implement driver safety mechanisms to restrict or prohibit access to certain functions that may cause distraction whilst driving. As a core member of the Car Connectivity Consortium, RealVNC remains committed to providing a safe and seamless experience for smartphone users in their vehicles.

VNC Automotive is the most robust and advanced standard for mobile-to-vehicle integration and continues to be widely adopted. RealVNC's partners include some of the world's largest automotive, infotainment, OEM and Tier 1 manufacturers including Jaguar Land Rover, RIM, Clarion, Wipro, Cybercom, Denso, STMicroelectronics, Visteon, Teleca and QNX.

“We are already working with many of the major consumer electronics companies and automotive manufacturers in the Far East, so Telematics Japan provides the ideal opportunity to showcase the latest developments of VNC Automotive,” said Tom Blackie, Vice President Mobile, RealVNC. “The market for connecting smartphones and vehicles continues to accelerate at great pace and we are delighted that our technology remains at the forefront of this integration.”

VNC Automotive also supports other connectivity protocols such as MirrorLink, a standard based on VNC, and Apple's iPod Out, to provide the widest range of mobile handset coverage from a single head unit Human Machine Interface (HMI).
