Bringing Radio to Apps in the Car

September 27   •   9:45 a.m.  -  10:15 a.m.

Bonnet Creek Innovation Stage in The Marketplace

Everyone uses apps on their smartphones, but more and more apps are for the digital dashboard as well. Some automakers have their own app spaces while others rely on Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, which link consumers’ smartphones to the vehicle. PILOT has been exploring the possibilities of auto apps by participating in auto app hackathons and by pursing a more in-depth development approach, in part to make sure that these auto app spaces are as radio-friendly as possible. Come to this session to learn all about how apps work in the car and how broadcasters can use these apps to their advantage.
