One Connect by Panasonic (AUPEO!)
Bringing a personal listening experience to the road
We had a pleasure to participate in creating the first-ever vehicle-centric marketing and content delivery platform to connected drivers directly with the brands they trust.
Our team worked on AUPEO! by Panasonic – personal radio which is bringing a personal listening experience to the road. Nowadays AUPEO! is one of the main part of Panasonic Automotive debuted One Connect SM, the platform that Panasonic’s Personal Radio by AUPEO! content service is built upon. This is the most innovative content delivery platform to date.
AUPEO! is a leading provider of personalized audio for internet-capable hardware devices — with a special focus on in-vehicle applications. AUPEO! offers radio stations that compose a unique stream of music, news, traffic, weather and other content for lsiteners.
Available for iOS, Android, Windows, and select consumer devices such as Samsung Smart TV’s alongside in-car integrations.
By extending the One Connect platform, Panasonic Automotive adds an even more sophisticated level of interaction by seamlessly integrating relevant messages to the driver.
One Connect is available to auto manufacturers to add as an audio integration feature that allows them to connect with drivers through their infotainment systems. For example, notifications on software updates, service reminders and other messages can be seamlessly integrated into vehicle audio at convenient and unobtrusive times for the driver.
“This is the future of OEM communication with their customers. The vehicle remains the number one listening location for most consumers, and now, for the first time ever, brands can send targeted information directly to an engaged audience.”
– David Taylor, chief executive officer and managing director of Aupeo, GmbH

The next steps
We were expanding car-audio systems for carmakers, for example, developing an integration for Volkswagen cars based on MirrorLink technology. We also partnered with Ford AppLink system, Pioneer AppRadio and Qualcomm AllPlay to bring AUPEO! and similar apps to their ecosystems. We were also working on concepts to expand the audio streaming platform to other areas of Panasonic business beyond automotive.
At present, the AUPEO! by Panasonic project is continued as OneConnect. OneConnect is available to auto manufacturers to add as an audio integration feature that allows them to connect with driver through their infotainment systems.
