LG's webOS Auto is a Linux-powered IVI platform for connected cars, created to provide OEM and tier-one manufacturers with productivity and flexibility for the next generation in-vehicle experience.

In addition to a joint venture to help develop self-driving cars in China, the two respective juggernauts are working on revving up general connectivity.

Companies in various fields, ranging from System on Chip (SoC) to cloud services, are participating in WebOS Auto's open ecosystem and are highly competitive.

Cerence was spun-off from Nuance Communications in October and now operates as an independent automotive software company. Under the partnership, the two companies aim to enhance in-vehicle communications experience through voice commands, enabling drivers and passengers to have far more control over auto functions, navigation and multimedia content. It is leading in this field by supplying voice recognition engines that support about 70 languages to global carmakers.
