Android’s Infotainment Push Extends to BEV Range

Android’s reach into advanced vehicle infotainment is extended with the launch of a new OS platform for BEV users.

Provider of energy management solutions, Spark EV Technology, has announced that it is now offering its patented technology on Android Automotive OS, claiming to provide accurate range predictions to drivers of BEVs. Its tech uses live data and machine learning algorithms tailored to each vehicle and driver to provide on-board range predictions for BEVs of all sizes, from e-bikes to e-trucks.

Company CEO and founder, Justin Ott, said: “Several customers are now moving to AAOS and have requested that our solutions support this platform. Having completed development work, we are now moving to integrate Assure and Flow onto a live vehicle demonstrator in the next couple of months. This technology provides customers with the option to run our prediction engine and machine learning embedded on AAOS or via their cloud-based provider. With many vehicle manufacturers moving towards electric products, as well as planning on using Android Automotive OS on their products in the future, Spark felt it was only natural to align our technology to this platform.”
