What is MirrorLink?
MirrorLink is a technology standard for controlling a nearby smartphone from the steering wheel or via dashboard buttons and screens. The technology leverages a vehicle's controls and displays to give consumers access to their smartphone apps while driving, allowing them to be connected and responsible at the same time.
For mobile app developers, MirrorLink is a one-stop shop to design apps that integrate with cars. For OS vendors and handset manufacturers, MirrorLink extends brand experience into cars. For regulators, MirrorLink offers a sensible alternative to the outright prohibition of smartphone use while driving. For mobile operators, MirrorLink makes it possible to continue delivering mobile services to subscribers while they are behind the wheel. And for consumers, MirrorLink makes connected driving safer and more enjoyable.
