RealVNC® showcases latest in-car technology at TU-Automotive Japan 2015

RealVNC, the global provider of VNC® remote access technology and premier MirrorLink™ supplier, will be demonstrating its most recent automotive solutions at TU Automotive Japan 2015 this week (20th – 21st October).


RealVNC will be demonstrating the latest in VNC Telematics™ allowing connectivity and real-time interaction between vehicles and cloud-based content and applications. The technology allows automotive OEMs and dealer networks to remotely access a vehicle’s dashboard display in order to deliver instant assistance to the driver.

Alongside this demonstration, RealVNC will also be showcasing its MirrorLink Certified™ solution, VNC Automotive™. This solution pairs your vehicle with your mobile device, enabling your mobile phone to perform a number of different functions within the car. The technology allows multiple videos to be streamed from one handset and viewed on the rear seat entertainment screens, as well as allowing you to connect several mobile devices to the vehicle at once with the freedom to stream content from any one of them. In addition to this, whilst videos and media applications are running, the driver is able to launch navigation maps without disrupting the passenger’s viewing.

In an industry where driver safety is of the upmost importance, VNC Automotive technology allows the mobile device to be controlled from the car dashboard, vehicle bezel keys, or steering wheel switches. There is also a screen blanking option available for any applications which are deemed too distracting to be used whilst on the move.

 “We look forward to returning to TU Automotive Japan for the third year, where we will be exhibiting our latest automotive technology for mobile to vehicle connectivity,” said Tom Blackie, Vice President Mobile and Automotive at RealVNC. He adds, “The capabilities our technology provides are the most advanced, mature and production ready; it is being integrated into more vehicles than ever, making it widely available for drivers. We are extremely pleased with the growing success of VNC Automotive and look forward to another exciting year.”
