Nokia Unveils HERE Auto – Connecting Your Car To The Cloud

Nokia on Friday announced Here Auto, their first push into a smarter vehicle platform. Noting the growing rift between automobiles and smart devices, Nokia’s Here Auto is expected to be their first push into building software to be used by the driverless cars of the future.
Just like its namesake, Here Auto delivers maps and other navigation information to the car’s in-dash infotainment system. Going beyond maps, Here Auto companion apps will deliver music and social experiences as well as let drivers check their gas tank and tire pressure from their smartphone.
The Finnish smartphone maker plans to show off Here Auto at the Frankfurt Motor Show on September 10, 2013.
