Xevo Mobileware™

The Xevo Mobileware™ feature-rich product family allows OEM-branded mobile apps to deliver both enhanced vehicle owner engagement and new revenue opportunities for automakers.

Xevo’s Mobileware, a key component of our Journeyware connected car platform, helps OEMs strategically leverage mobile devices – specifically mobile applications – to personally connect with their customers both in and outside of their vehicles. Our Mobileware connected car applications work in unison with Xevo’s automotive analytics and in-car technology to exploit an expansive set of connected features, from basic vehicle information to advanced features that enable secure control of vehicle functions.

  • Business Trip Tracking – Mobileware will track business vs. personal use, fuel purchases, and parking expenses to simplify expense reports and IRS reporting.
  • Vehicle Health and Performance Monitoring – Mobileware will monitor your vehicle’s health and performance, offering maintenance reminders, recall notices, and scheduling service appointments as needed.

Parents can also set geographical limits and curfews for vehicle use and location.
  • Emergency Assistance – If a collision is detected, your vehicle can summon help and notify loved ones.

The Features Your Customers Want, the Intelligence You Need

Mobileware makes it easy for OEMs to deliver the features customers want by simplifying the development and deployment of OEM-branded apps. Simple and intuitive to use, apps feature intelligent back-end capabilities and can be skinned to align with brand design language. Plugin architecture ensures extensibility, while OTA update capabilities ensure customers always have the most current skins, plugins, and features at their fingertips. Mobileware’s targetable updates let automakers run staged update campaigns, and deliver trial plugins and skins to any subset of mobile devices.

An abstraction of backend services provide flexibility, allowing for seamless redirection to new service providers. Mobileware also offers full telemetry reporting; with the available OTA services, this supports A/B testing, heatmaps, and other advanced UI diagnostics. The solution works on an extensible projection framework, making it easy to add projection technologies over time.

Mobileware also provides full access to Xevo Edge Integration services. Apps can request in-car data using fully authenticated interfaces, and run native classification models against the data. The models can also be updated on a dynamic, continuous basis for any part of the installed base.
