Connected Car Suppliers

The connected vehicle revolution is upon us. Autonomous cruisers are hitting the streets in cities all over the world, testing and planning for a future where your car will be just like your living room. Evolving from streaming audio to video games, movies, and television, content consumption on the road is rapidly becoming an all-immersive experience. Join industry leaders such as Ford and Magellan to learn how SDL can open the door to millions of vehicles across the globe today, and prepare you for the in-vehicle ecosystem of tomorrow. 

SDL enables Developers to use a single linking solution for both iOS and Android applications to deliver an in-vehicle content experience appropriate for the road and tailored to the vehicle controls such as voice control, in-dash, or rear seat displays. 

Automotive OEMs conscious of third party solutions that are quickly expanding their own ecosystems within the vehicle can maintain control by adopting SDL. Hear why  Toyota, Mazda, PSA, Suzuki, Subaru, and Ford have all committed to this platform which allows each OEM full control of HMI and branding, content decisions, and most important, vehicle data access and monetization opportunity.  

Anyone in the Automotive Supply Chain, including software and hardware developers, Tier 1 suppliers and more can join the SDLC and have a voice in crafting this open source technology. Add SDL to your product offering to enhance your connectivity offerings as an adopter. SDL is available today for free, and encouraged as a single connectivity solution for any industry.
