MirrorLink™ certification services
Smartphones provide consumers with a huge variety of applications. This makes them attractive to use, even within cars, since the in-vehicle infotainment systems (IVI) only offer a limited number of applications. However, using Smartphones whilst driving can be dangerous and it is therefore forbidden in many countries today.
The Car Connectivity Consortium (CCC)
The Car Connectivity Consortium (CCC) offers a solution to this problem by offering global standards for phone-centric car connectivity solutions. World’s leading automotive, mobile communications and consumer electronics industry companies are members of the CCC, representing more than 80% of the worldwide market share in vehicles and more than 70% of the worldwide market share in smartphones.
The CCC has established a standardized MirrorLink™ certification process. Only those devices and applications that have been evaluated against the CCC’s certification requirements are granted the right to use the MirrorLink TM logo. For more information please go to: http://www.mirrorlink.com/
MirrorLink™ offers seamless connectivity between a smartphone and the car infotainment system. Drivers connect their phone either wirelessly or with a USB cable and immediately gain access to phone applications via the car’s navigation screen and dashboard/steering-wheel buttons.
MirrorLink uses well established, non-proprietary technologies such as Internet Protocol, Bluetooth(R), USB and WLAN. The access to applications is made easier thanks to Universal Plug and Play (UPnP™), Virtual Network Computing (VNC™) replicates the phone’s display on the navigation screen, and in addition to Bluetooth ®, MirrorLink™ streams audio with Real-Time Protocol (RTP).
