This implementation is the result of a continued collaboration between Parrot, Delphi and Audi. It is implemented for several cars in the Audi range such as the A1 city car and the A7 sedan. These vehicles will first be marketed in Europe with vehicle releases taking place between mid-2010 and early 2011 before they are launched in other continents.

The solution developed by Parrot includes state-of-the-art hands-free telephony features with phonebook synchronization and digital signal processing technologies such as noise reduction and echo cancellation. It also offers audio streaming of music files from the customer’s mobile phone into the car audio system via the A2DP protocol. This lets the customer make the most of its phone’s multimedia capabilities thus making it a major element of the car’s entertainment system.

"Parrot Automotive Connectivity Solutions imply best-in-class integration and easy-to-use features. They are increasingly adopted by premium automotive manufacturers,” said Eric Riyahi, OEM Executive Director at Parrot.
