KOBE, Japan, Jan. 6 /CNW/ - FUJITSU TEN LIMITED is currently developing
next-generation vehicle-mounted devices under the three general themes
of "linking cars with society", "linking cars with people", and
"linking cars with other cars, and cars with infrastructure".
One project is the development of a vehicle-mounted Android™*(1)
(equipped with the sophisticated NVIDIA (R) Tegra™ 2*(2)(3) mobile

used as a display model in the NVIDIA booth at the 2011 International
CES*(4), the world's largest consumer electronics trade show, which
will be held from Jan. 6 to 9, 2011 in Las Vegas, Nevada (USA).

Development Background - Supporting Car Networks
The growth of informatization utilizing networks is symbolized by the
current rapid expansion of the smartphone market both within Japan and
abroad. Android™ is now a standard platform for providing network
connectivity functions, and it provides a simple and easy method for
connecting with various content and services. For these reasons,
Android™ is rapidly being adopted for mobile devices such as
smartphones and tablet PCs.
In the automobile industry, as next-generation vehicles (such as HV, PHV
and EV) become more widespread, it is expected that the networking of
cars, including navigation units, will likewise become even more
developed. In response to such changes, FUJITSU TEN is meeting the
challenge to create and develop new products and systems under the
three general themes of "linking cars with society", "linking cars with
people", and "linking cars with other cars, and cars with
One of the ways we are meeting the challenge is considering the future
adoption of the Android™ to improve automobile connectivity, and as
such we have created a prototype for a vehicle-mounted Android™
terminal. Additionally, we have equipped this prototype with NVIDIA (R)
Tegra™ 2, a mobile superchip with high processing performance and low
power consumption performance.
