Tietoevry partners with automotive-developer HaleyTek to bring high-end Android-based infotainment to Polestar and Volvo Cars
Tietoevry Create, the global business design and software engineering arm of Tietoevry, has agreed to partner with HaleyTek, a joint venture between Volvo Cars and ECARX, to develop an Android Open Source Project-based infotainment system for current and future Polestar and Volvo car models. The companies will focus on developing the platform software that enables a smooth in-car audio experience. This brings the power of Android to cars – introducing openness, customization, and scale to automotive infotainment systems and head units.
Tietoevry Create now supports HaleyTek with Android OS audio architecture design, implementation, integration and test automation, as well as with developing wireless connectivity over Bluetooth.
“We have been working with Android for mobile devices since 2011. When we started to look at the automotive version in 2017, we quickly saw the potential it had for our customers,” says Emmanuel Maillard, Vice-President, Automotive Software at Tietoevry Create. “We’re delighted to help HaleyTek bring a high-end automotive platform to current and future Polestar and Volvo car models. Our shared goal is to provide drivers and passengers with an outstanding in-car infotainment experience.”
“At HaleyTek we’re developing a common Android-ready infotainment platform for several OEMs within the Geely group. A big part of this task was to ramp up the right competence to help us achieve the top-notch quality expected from our products,” says Jorge Jara, Engineering Manager at HaleyTek. “We looked all around Europe for the best engineers to support us. This is how we found the talented automotive team at Tietoevry Create, now a key partner in developing the top-quality next-generation technology our customers deserve in upcoming vehicles.”
