2015 International CES

LAS VEGAS--()--Rivet News Radio, the smart audio news network, today announced the availability of the Rivet Auto API, providing app platforms and car manufacturers an easy and powerful solution for delivering customized, targeted radio news to drivers. Rivet News Radio will demonstrate Rivet’s Embedded Integration using the Rivet Auto API with OpenCar Inc. and Visteon throughout the International CES Conference January 6-9, in Las Vegas, NV. Earlier this year, Rivet announced its first Smartphone Integration, with Bosch Automotive Technologies and Abalta’s Weblink.

“The Rivet Auto API empowers us to expand further into the auto industry and to partner with any OEM or system manufacturer,” said John MacLeod, CEO of Rivet News Radio. “Rivet’s dual approach with both Embedded and Smartphone Solutions provides multiple ways for connected-car drivers to access our best-in-class smart content.”

The Rivet Auto API enables customization of content selection to meet OEMs’ application needs, and supports content filtering based on location and user interests. It also allows OEMs to offer on-demand weather updates, based on location.

Rivet Auto API Features:

  • Options for OEM white-label integration
  • REST APIs enables easy integration
  • Small set of APIs, with rich variations & control
  • Flexibility to deliver OEM specific maintenance alerts and promotional messages
  • Secured transactions to Rivet’s data cloud
  • Customer specific dashboard with rich analytics on content usage metrics
  • Allows integration with existing infotainment solutions

Automakers including Bosch Automotive Technology are already working with Rivet’s Smartphone Integration inside Jaguar/Land Rover vehicles. These cars use Rivet’s iPhone and Android apps to power newscasts through system manufacturers’ entertainment units. Abalta’s Weblink previously adopted the service for demonstration purposes.

"Rivet and Rivet's smart phone integration have made news content available to our drivers in a way that perfectly fits their digital lifestyle," Sharjeel Noor, Senior Director, App Innovation Center – Americas said. "We are delighted to be working with Rivet in advancing new and exciting ways to deliver spoken news to our customers."
