Windows Embedded Automotive 7 is an extensible technology platform for automakers and suppliers to deliver in-car experiences that keep drivers connected and informed. Leveraging a range of devices, services and technology, the platform extends work and home into the vehicle through connected car scenarios. Delivering the power of Windows to the car, Windows Embedded Automotive 7 provides resources that help automobile manufacturers increase customer loyalty and provide new services, such as enabling software updates that extend a vehicle’s value and lifespan. With more than ten years in the automotive space, and deep, longstanding relationships with automakers including Ford, Fiat, Nissan, and Kia, Microsoft is invested in helping car manufacturers and suppliers connect drivers with a range of devices and services.
Automotive system tools and board support packages (BSPs) help to streamline software development and ensure compatibility with a broad range of microprocessor platforms to accelerate time to market.
Support for the full range of communications protocols, such as Bluetooth, MAP and PBAP, enables hands-free phone connectivity to contacts, calendaring, e-mail, SMS and other smartphone functions.
Microsoft Tellme Speech technologies and multi-touch capabilities provide the tools to create an in-car technology solution that’s immersive and easy to use, helping to keep the driver focused on the road ahead.
Device update packs ensure future phones and media players will work with systems built on Windows Embedded Automotive 7.
Windows Embedded Automotive 7 is the result of more than a decade of experience working with companies that manufacture automobiles and automotive accessories. With industry leading development tools such as Visual Studio, Expression Blend and XAML, you can build a development platform that fuels your company’s ability to innovate and create connected car solutions. And support for a variety of microprocessor technologies provides the flexibility of using the system architecture that matches your requirements. Windows Embedded Automotive 7 is also designed to be an extensible operating system, providing the ability to upgrade the performance and capabilities of the in-car experience, adding new features, enabling the control of third-party applications and improving overall quality.
Windows Embedded Automotive 7 takes a platform-agnostic approach with support for mobile devices, which ensures the appeal of your solution to a larger segment of the potential customer base. With support for multi-touch gesture input, voice recognition powered by Microsoft Tellme Speech technologies and availability of foreign language packs, you can create a range of in-car technology experiences that match the requirements of the specific model, while addressing the needs of your target customer.
With Windows Embedded Automotive 7, you can create a connected car solution that goes well beyond typical in-car entertainment systems, including telematics tools that provide the foundation for solutions that may monitor the vehicle’s performance, screen for maintenance issues, or even track the car’s location when someone else is driving. Your solution can also include sensors embedded throughout the car that send maintenance and vehicle diagnostic information to the driver’s PC or mobile device; that data can also provide you with additional insight into ways to enhance services delivered to customers.
