Leading car-smartphone connectivity technology functionally delivers apps to the dash
Beaverton, OR – June 15, 2015 — The Car Connectivity Consortium (CCC), an organization driving global technologies for smartphone-centric car connectivity solutions, today announced that the Daimler Smart car is now MirrorLink®-enabled. Now standard on the most popular vehicles and smartphones across the globe, MirrorLink is one of the most ingenious ways to bring smartphone content to the dash. With huge icons, apps are easy to use and intuitive technology knows if the car is in Park or Drive.
“Daimler’s Smart is a stellar addition to the CCC’s roster of MirrorLink-enabled vehicles,” said Alan Ewing, President and Executive Director of the CCC. “We are pleased to see the MirrorLink standard in even more of the world’s leading cars and smartphones as it demonstrates not only that our footprint is expanding, but that MirrorLink is truly making the connected car a reality.”
MirrorLink is the leading industry standard for car-smartphone connectivity and is designed for maximum interoperability between a wide range of smartphones and cars. MirrorLink is also the only OS- and OEM-agnostic car-smartphone connectivity standard and empowers consumers to feel linked to their devices and responsible at the same time. As the only vendor-neutral standard where no single entity has a controlling stake, MirrorLink offers the quickest global route to more responsible and enjoyable connected driving.
For years, the smart brand has stood like no other for innovation, functionality, and a joy of life. Thanks to their unconventional design and high technological standards, smart vehicles are perfect for city driving – both as conventional smarts or electric cars. In its effort to develop the best urban mobility solutions, smart questions the status quo, which makes it the world’s smallest automotive think tank.
