Panasonic Automotive Systems Company of America, a division of Panasonic Corporation of North America, today announced their role as the Tier I supplier partner for SYNC 3 – Ford’s next-generation communications and entertainment system. As a global leader in the infotainment space, Panasonic Automotive worked with Ford to develop SYNC 3 – a faster, more intuitive, easier-to-use system that features an enhanced response to driver commands.
Panasonic Automotive is among the very few auto suppliers who have full end-to-end software and hardware development and integration capability – one of the key attributes that allows for a well-designed system.
As the global leader in intellectual property, patents among infotainment suppliers, Panasonic Automotive brought unmatched experience in the consumer electronics and automotive space to Ford in order to produce a next-generation communications and entertainment system. Panasonic holds high JD Power rankings with other infotainment platforms they’ve produced, including many versions of Chevrolet’s MyLink, Buick’s Intellilink and Chrysler’s Uconnect.
What is SYNC3?
SYNC 3’s more conversational voice recognition technology, a more smartphone-like touch screen and easy-to-read graphics will help millions of drivers connect with their lives and control their smartphone while on the road. The next-generation system builds on the capability of SYNC technology already in more than 10 million SYNC-equipped vehicles on the road globally. SYNC 3 begins arriving on new vehicles next year.
