Pioneer Delivers Dynamic Content to the Car with AppRadioLIVE App

Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc. today continues to advance the connected car experience with the development and launch of AppRadioLIVE. Developed by Pioneer, AppRadioLIVE is a proprietary new app for users of Pioneer’s AppRadio and AppRadio Mode in-dash receivers. This new app aggregates content from popular music, events, traffic, weather and news sources through a new interactive user interface to provide seamless access to personalized information while in the vehicle. The AppRadioLIVE app is available for the latest iPhone devices1 and is compatible with all current and past Pioneer AppRadio products as well as 2013 and 2014 audio video and navigation receiver models featuring AppRadio Mode2.

“The AppRadioLIVE app, developed with direct feedback from existing AppRadio customers, delivers some of the best content and services that drivers are already using today, but aggregated into a single, intuitive new user interface,” said Ted Cardenas, vice president of marketing for the Car Electronics Division of Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc. “Developing an app like this gives us the ability to service and reach loyal customers by simply refreshing their existing products. Best of all, users get a seamless experience between the built-in aggregated content for a safer, more fun user experience.”

With the app running on a compatible iPhone connected to an AppRadio or AppRadio Mode in-dash receiver, users have access to various third party services directly on the Pioneer touchscreen. By combining these services into a single app, AppRadioLIVE eliminates the need to open different apps individually to access content from partners such as INRIX®, Stitcher®, Yelp® and more, greatly simplifying the user’s experience. The dynamic home screen of AppRadioLIVE provides an interactive interface divided into quadrants consisting of maps, music, news information, and calendar events. By selecting one of the quadrants, the driver can bring the necessary information into focus with a full screen view.

Mapping

AppRadioLIVE’s map feature provides access to a map with INRIX live traffic data including traffic flow and incidents information. AppRadioLIVE makes it easy to obtain an estimated time of arrival (ETA) to various destinations such as home, work or a specified destination. Within the same interface, users can quickly find popular points of interest with reviews delivered from Yelp and receive information about concerts and other nearby events delivered by Eventseeker®. The AppRadioLIVE map feature also allows destinations to be exported directly into any of the user’s favorite AppRadio compatible navigations apps, such as iGo Primo®, MotionX GPS Drive®, Navfree® or Waze® to obtain route and voice guidance.

Media

AppRadioLIVE provides access to a variety of audio content from music to podcasts, and even Internet radio. Users have quick access and control over the music stored on their iPhone devices and also have access to streamed content through services like Stitcher, offering more than 25,000 on demand radio shows and podcasts, Rdio®, one of the largest music streaming services in the world with over 25 million songs available3, and Pioneer aggregated Internet Radio with access to several hundred pure play stations, sorted by genre.

News Information

With Feedly®, AppRadioLIVE consumers can stay up-to-date on the latest news topics that matter most to them. The service enables customizable RSS (Really Simple Syndication) news feeds to be read back using a high quality text-to-speech engine. Open Weather Map is also built-in giving users access to up-to-date 5-day weather forecasts for locations including their home, work, and destination when a route is set.

Calendar Events

AppRadioLIVE keeps consumers organized and informed by accessing the user’s iPhone calendar and Facebook events and delivering this information through a single, simple interface. Eventseeker can also update the user’s calendar view with information about nearby activities such as concerts, sporting events and more. AppRadioLIVE provide users the ability to view all of their activities in chronological order or in a quick snapshot with a timeline view.

Cloud computing is a goal aspired to by all organizations, yet those in regulated industries and many public sector organizations are challenged in adopting cloud technologies.

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it’s important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures.

It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee A...
