It seems like automotive and technology companies have been doing a lot teaming up over the recent years. it's all a part of the race to develop self driving cars and make vehicles more integrated with a human's lifestyle. Long are the days where cars were built just to get you from point A to point B. Now they must have distinct functionality that can separate car companies from the pack.
Volkswagen is teaming up with LG Electronics to co-develop a technology that will allow drivers to monitor devices in their homes. From operating a security system to turning on or off a light, it's all in a way for a driver to have more connection with the outside world from the inside of their vehicle. Entertainment technology and alert systems are also in the works to be worked upon between the two companies.
LG Electronics is using this as an opportunity to grow new business as the automotive field is now more than ever expanding into adding new innovative technology into vehicles.
