The first brand interested in it is the Japanese Toyota that according to has informed is studying implant it in the dashboard of their next cars.
With the SmartDeviceLink is can integrate in the car applications as Spotify or AccuWeather, and can also, handle them from the controls of the steering wheel, or even with the voice (if the vehicle has with this system). Once implanted in the car must think in the SmartDeviceLink as the base operating system that take our cars in the face of the coming years.
