The Open Automotive Alliance finally shows a product at Google I/O after its launch in January this year. Android Auto is a completely voice-enabled contextually based system. Members including Google, Audi, Honda, GM, Hyundai, and chipmaker Nvidia have been collaborating to bring Android to the car in 2014 in as safe a way as possible. Rather than the more traditional model of smarts baked-into the car's headunit, the AO system projects its OS and the app in play into the car's screen -- much like AppRadio does. So speaking to your car will allow it to pass along info on opening and closing times of places near you, restaurant listings, send messages, play music and make calls. 25 car brands have signed up so far with 40 other partners jumping on board.
