How to Design And Build Android Apps for Cars
A few years ago Google introduced Android Automotive OS, an Android operating system that is familiar to millions of developers, tailored to run in the car. Most recently, Polestar announced that they are shipping their first electric vehicle (Polestar 2) running Android Automotive OS.
Speakers from Google will introduce new Android-based infotainment systems that are built directly into cars. This talk will focus primarily on how to design and build new apps or adapt existing Android Auto apps to the new Android-based infotainment systems. People interested in building experiences powered by Android can also learn about new design changes and how to optimize their apps.
