Continental is developing an open software architecture called AutoLinQ, based on Google's Android software stack for mobile devices, to enable 3rd party suppliers to create applications for its telematics systems. These would be downloaded into vehicles by customers themselves.
Possible applications include navigation, entertainment, and social networking. How about car alarms? Or maybe apps to reduce driver distraction? Ummm... yeah.
