Nissan and Airbiquity Renew Commitment to NissanConnect
The NissanConnect is one of Nissan’s pride and joys. The infotainment system has been loaded in new vehicles since 2013, and it allows drivers to stay connected with their car when it is parked, and then connected to the outside world while driving. NissanConnect is currently offered in several packages to make it the best fit possible for every driver, and several of the features help drivers keep their eyes on the road instead of down on their phones.
Earlier this month it was announced that Nissan had renewed its commitment with Airbiquity, a Seattle-based company that specializes in connected car services and utilizes cloud computing in its service delivery. Nissan relies on Airbiquity to manage the NissanConnect service delivery, including several over-the-air app and program updates to ensure that every car equipped with the system can keep up with new smartphones and customer expectations.
Airbiquity utilizes its Choreo platform and cloud computing to maintain NissanConnect and the Infiniti InTouch systems, as well as competitors Ford and Fiat Chrysler. The company’s content portfolio includes apps for companies like Facebook, Google, Pandora, Yelp, TripAdvisor, and more to ensure seamless connection to content for drivers.
Kamyar Moinzadeh, President and CEO of Airbiquity, said, “After three years of program deployment Airbiquity is honored to continue providing infotainment service delivery for Nissan Motor Corporation into the next decade. In a rapidly evolving market our team is always looking ahead to ensure we’re providing the most innovative technology to our customers. We look forward to working with Nissan to help them maintain a leadership role in automotive infotainment.”
