From the 2016 CES in Las Vegas, UIEvolution, www.uievolution.com, a vertical cloud SaaS (software-as-a-service) provider that specializes in scalable connected device software and solutions, has made several announcements advancing its position in the connected-car space.
First, UIEvolution says it is joining other industry suppliers and automakers that will adopt Ford’s, www.ford.com, SmartDeviceLink open-source smartphone app interface software. Ford SmartDeviceLink software is the basis of Ford SYNC AppLink on Ford vehicles and it will allow non-Ford vehicles to benefit from the app-integration technology, including voice recognition and dashboard controls. UIEvolution says by making
SmartDeviceLink software available to the open-source community, Ford is helping the industry deliver on customer expectations for smartphone app integration.
In a related announcement, UIEvolution says it is a key part of Toyota’s, www.toyota.com, move to accelerate its connected-car initiatives. As part of its next-generation connected vehicle framework, Toyota and UIEvolution will jointly develop standard middleware for application in Toyota’s in-car devices globally.
Finally, UIEvolution announced it has received a $5 million investment from the Mirai Creation Investment Limited Partnership Fund, which UIEvolution will use to accelerate its IoT (Internet of Things) technology and services. In 2016 and beyond, the company has set itself up for success through key partnerships and by delivering in-demand, next-gen technologies for the connected car.
