New MOST Generation MOST150 Has Entered the Roads in the New Audi A3
The MOST Cooperation welcomes the recent rollout of the new Audi A3, the first car model that integrates the latest MOST Generation MOST150.

Automotive infotainment and open-source development: Where is the industry moving?

By Laurent Emmerich – Coupled with high-speed internet connectivity and intuitive human machine interfaces (HMI), our cars have become smart devices on wheels. Dashboards that once featured basic audio systems are being replaced with multimedia and entertainment systems that stream data from the internet, mirroring many of the features that we access in our homes and our smart mobile devices. Printed maps are being replaced with sexy navigation systems that get us where we need to be at the touch of a screen or sound of our voice.
