Anupam Malhotra of Audi talks about some features of Audi connect™
As one of the most important electronics trade show in the world, the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) serves as a magnificent stage for innovations. Last year, Audi presented its technologies for in-vehicle user interfaces and infotainment under the name Audi connect.
The name “Audi connect,” which serves as the slogan for the company’s trade fair display, describes the fully networked mobility of Audi — that is, the networking of Audi models with the Internet, with the infrastructure and with other vehicles. The interfaces between the car and information technology continue to gain importance here. Audi already offers its customers integrated services that result from intelligently linking cloud and backend solutions. The connection with the World Wide Web currently operates via UMTS — in the future, Audi will rely on the fast LTE standard.
