Besides the Golf R Touch Concept, Volkswagen also showed the Connected Golf Concept at the 2015 Consumer Electronics Show (CES). According to the German carmaker, the concept shows the maximum networking potential of the car.
Equipped with the next-generation infotainment system, the new Connected Golf Concept will incorporate a huge range of apps, smartphones and tablets via the progressive interface management system.
Passengers will be able to use different smartphone apps over the infotainment systems. Three underlying software interfaces of App-Connect are Mirror Link, Android Auto and CarPlay.
Still, the applications of VW Car-Net are not the only innovations found on the Connected Golf as the vehicle also comes with Regular Routers, a function of the navigation system which automatically detects traffic disruptions found on your daily route.
Furthermore, the Connected Gold is equipped with Intelligent Charge, showing that the inductive charging will be an alternative to the standard cable-based charging.
The Park Assist will automatically guide the vehicle into parallel and perpendicular parking spaces, but can also exit parallel parking spaces.
"The two inventions of the century, the car and the computer, are gradually coming closer together. We need to design future mobility to be even more intelligent and even more networked," said Prof. Dr. Martin Winterkorn, CEO of Volkswagen AG. [source: VW]
