With the support from Daegu Technopark Mobile Convergence Center, Dream Ace (CEO Kim Guk-tae, Im Jin-woo) will participate in the world’s largest technology exhibition CES 2020 opening in Las Vegas on Jan. 7-10 to showcase its integrated automobile infotainment system software.
Dream Ace is the company that develops and supplies the SW platform of the recently booming integrated cockpit (total management of Cluster + AVN + RSE) as well as the automobile infotainment system AVN (Audio Video Navigation), RSE (Rear Seat Entertainment) and Cluster.
The company’s software platform boasts improved the UI/UX of the existing AGL platform to the level of a smartphone and enhanced communication functions. The unique Android container technology enables the Android app to be installed on the AGL platform without conversion and run in a car environment.
In addition, by using much less hardware resources than traditional hypervisor methods, an integrated cockpit can be run in a hardware environment, and it contributes to cost competitiveness.
In addition, the control and monitoring can be done with the infotainment system. The major target customers are automakers and car infotainment component partners, and car-based service companies such as car sharing can also be key customers for RSE.
The CEO said, “We have solidified our partnership with the first-tier partners who are currently working on the project. We are planning to expand the models with Dream Ace’s software platform to all over the world, so that our platform can be subject to technical exchange and joint R&D for European and Japanese cars. You will see the cars with Dream Ace’s platform in 2020.”
Daegu Metropolitan City has supported 196 ICT venture companies and SMEs in the area to enter the market for eight consecutive years since 2013, with the cumulative contract amount of $22.4 million as of 2019.
Daegu Joint Pavilion, organized by Daegu Technopark Mobile Convergence Center, will have 44 ICT convergence ventures and SMEs and three startups. Major programs include exhibitions, investor pitching, public relations with foreign media, and post-CES review conferences. In CES 2019, Daegu and Gyeongbuk Province exchanged MOU to run joint pavilion in CES for the benefits of both parties, and the joint pavilion has been set up in CES 2020. The world’s largest IT show CES shows the trend of the global technology issues and trends at a glance. It is hosted by Consumer Technology Association (CTA) and is held every January.
