A new frontier: Polestar 2’s infotainment system

Nothing compares with the excitement of exploration. The urge to see what’s out there is what propels mountain climbers to the peaks. It causes scientists to send remote vehicles to Challenger Deep. Whenever a new frontier opens up, physical or virtual, there’s no shortage of curious people eager to explore it to the very edges.

Which is where the infotainment system of the Polestar 2 comes in.

Polestar 2 is the first car in the world to feature a native Android Automotive system, featuring a suite of Google and third-party apps optimised for the in-car experience. From an app development perspective, this is the Wild West: a sprawling, unexplored land ripe with possibilities. A place where ideas can grow. A place of experimentation. A place without limits (almost).

To that end, we’ve built a Polestar 2 emulator for Android Studio which features full implementation of Google Automotive Services: Google Maps for navigation, Google Assistant for voice control, and Google Play store for downloading and installation. This functionality means that developers can test their apps in the same way as users in the Polestar 2 will, meaning full optimisation and usability from the beginning.

The Polestar 2 infotainment system is an entirely new frontier. Time to get excited about exploring it.
