OpenAuto, the Open Source In-Car Entertainment System
Android Auto adds an untold level of convenience to your driving experience.
Designed to emulate an AndroidAuto head unit, OpenAuto runs on Raspbian Stretch and is based on the aasdk and Qt libraries, with the aim of running AndroidAuto on a Raspberry Pi 3 without any stability issues.
With a range of display options (480p, 720p and 1080p with 30 or 60FPS) and hardware acceleration to decode video, you’ll probably want to pair your Raspberry Pi up with a touchscreen device to get the best out of this. OpenAuto takes up 4.9GB, so you’ll need at least an 8GB microSD card.
To get an idea of what it can do, check out the video below. Be aware, though, that the project is currently in beta. It currently supports Linux, Raspberry Pi 3, and Windows, and there are plans to add more features and platforms in the future.
Here’s a list of the current build’s features:
- 480p, 720p and 1080p with 30 or 60 FPS
- RaspberryPi 3 hardware acceleration support to decode video stream (video stream up to 1080p@60)
- Audio playback from all audio channels (Media, System and Speech)
- Audio input for voice commands
- Touchscreen and buttons input
- Automatic launch after device hotplug
- User-friendly settings
