Make Android™ Automotive OS the centre of your infotainment system
Benefits of Android Automotive OS for OEMs
AAOS allows companies to develop and launch high-quality automotive solutions fast, thanks to a variety of built-in features for virtualization, AVB support, various power modes, etc.
Fully customizable HMI
Android Automotive is the perfect platform for crafting unique user experiences tailored to customer’s personal preferences, all the while closely following the company’s brand image.
Vast number of Google apps and services
Google Automotive Services can radically expand your in-car functionality. Apps such as Google Maps, Google Play, and Google Assistant are as useful as they are familiar, which is a huge factor for adoption rates.
Access to the majority of IVI features
AAOS supports a wide range of in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) features: media, navigation, voice control, vehicle settings, and more. Additionally, it’s quickly becoming the number one technology for connecting one’s mobile phone to the IVI system.
Our Android Automotive services
Bamboo Apps utilises AAOS to develop comprehensive platforms and apps for vehicles, covering everything from proof-of-concept to production-ready products.
We make use of the entire range of capabilities offered by the framework, including the integration of Android Studio IDE (Integrated Development Environment), Android Automotive API, and Android for Cars App Library.

Features we implemented in AAOS apps
Android Automotive offers a lot of developer freedom, especially to those willing to experiment with the platform’s capabilities and the unique context of a given project. Just like that, the team of Bamboo Apps has gained experience of implementing a range of advanced features when working with AAOS solutions.
We can implement multiple types of secure user authentication (password, two-factor, biometric, etc.) to protect sensitive customer and corporate data, as well as driver privacy.
Our team can enrich AAOS applications with engaging video and stereo content. We make sure drivers can enjoy films, podcasts, articles, and music while still keeping their full attention on the road.
The developers of Bamboo Apps have enabled natural voice-based interactions with Android Automotive apps to enhance hands-free usability and accessibility.
We can help you bring extra convenience to drivers and passengers in the form of an integrated voice assistant. Bamboo Apps has experience in creating smart assistant systems that naturally respond to voice commands and provide contextual advice.
We can get the most out of advanced vehicle connectivity by integrating telemetry data to enhance analytics, diagnostics, environmental analysis, and remote monitoring capabilities.
Our developers can add navigation, geofencing, and other location-based functionality to your AAOS software, alongside personalised recommendations via GPS and point-of-interest (POI) features.
Our team can outfit your Android Automotive solution with timely and relevant notifications that will keep users informed and engaged while minimising driver distraction.
We can allow drivers to make effortless transactions within an AAOS application with quick and secure in-vehicle payments (for example, by integrating popular payment services such as Stripe or PayPal).
