Aston Martin unveils Internet of Vehicle system with Rapide S

By CBR Staff Writer

Chinese media and electronics company LeTV has fitted an Internet of the Vehicle (IOV) system to the new Aston Martin Rapide S.

LeTV has replaced the standard instrument panel with a 12.2-inch TFT screen of the Rapide S with a 13.3-inch HD touch screen infotainment system.

It also features the original human-machine interaction (HMI), which has also been updated by integrating LeTV’s speech recognition technology.

The Aston Martin Rapide S concept is also compatible with Letv’s other devices which include remote monitoring and services with the support of LeCloud through the vehicles Wi-Fi system.

Letv’s Autolink system was initially showcased in November 2015, which has specifically been developed for automotive applications.

However, the company states that its collaboration with Aston Martin on the Rapide S marks the capabilities of its global open auto eco-system.

The companies have already signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to carry out research projects that include the development of connected electric vehicles through to manufacturing consultation on future electric vehicles.
