Android Automotive OS (AAOS)

Since the 1.21.0 release, in addition to providing images based on the Android Open Source Project (AOSP), Anbox Cloud also offers images based on the Android Automotive OS (AAOS). These images help run Android in automotive infotainment systems at scale.

  • This is currently an experimental feature.
  • The Anbox Cloud AAOS images are based on Android Automotive and not Android Auto. For understanding the differences between the two, see upstream documentation on Android Automotive and Android Auto.

The Vehicle Abstraction Layer (VHAL) enables Android Automotive to communicate with and control the different vehicle hardware controls.
