LG Electronics and Luxoft forge partnership to bring webOS to new sectors

Luxoft Holding, an IT service provider, has partnered with LG Electronics to create the next-generation webOS for the automotive, robotics and smart-home markets.

LG Electronics has previously used webOS in over 60 million LG smart TVs and digital signage displays worldwide and this installed base is growing rapidly.

Initially the joint development will focus on digital cockpit solutions, including infotainment, navigation and other human-car interaction-centric features.

“Underlying this partnership is a shared desire to make it easier for manufacturers to innovate with technology. This platform gives them the flexibility to make digital changes. This will help accelerate the mobility revolution, improve human-robotic interactions and make smart devices even smarter,” said Dmitry Loschinin, President and CEO of Luxoft.
