Google is working on a full-fledged automotive OS Android –

At the moment there are three versions of the operating system Android: platform for smartphones and tablets, Android TV and Android Wear.
 Apparently, the search giant is preparing a version of the fourth – for cars. Yes, the company has Android Auto, but it is absolutely not an operating system, a function for the “broadcast” features on the smartphone display automotive on-board computer.


The suggestion of the appearance of the new platform is based on information that can be found in Android Compatibility Definition Document, which describes the various conditions for the licensing of the Android OS by third parties. Some time ago there appeared information about the platform (apparently) Android Automotive. In particular, it says that it is the head unit of the car, running Android as the operating system. By the way, it concerns the specifications of the OS Android 6.0.


There are no data regarding the appearance of the finished automotive systems, by itself, the document is not available. Given the specificity of the automotive segment, the emergence of on-board automotive PC with Android OS should not be expected for at least a year, though to announce such a device may be in the past.
