Android for Rear-View Mirrors And Vehicle Stereos

Integrating Android into vehicles is now the target for many aftermarket car stereo companies, and Rydeen recently showed off a cool prototype at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES). Rydeen is very close to having a complete double-DIN stereo head unit running Android 2.2, otherwise known as Froyo and can be seen running within the rear-view mirror.

Rydeen is currently treating this project as a learning experience, but hopes by next year it’ll have a finalized mirror with a simplified interface more appropriate for drivers. Those that have had the chance to use Android sometimes complain that it’s not as user-friendly as Apple’s iOS, but the great thing about Android is its versatility to be customized for an entirely new user experience.
