Luxoft Holding, a global IT service provider, has partnered with LG Electronics to help extend the ecosystem of LG’s smart devices operating system, webOS, into automotive, robotics and smart home verticals.

LG Electronics has previously deployed webOS in over 60 million LG smart TVs and digital signage displays worldwide, and this install base is growing rapidly. As a partner, Luxoft will bring technical assets as well as experience in designing and deploying software platforms for a wide variety of products and services.

“We’re already leveraging LG Electronics’ thriving smart TV eco-system to customize and enhance webOS so it provides an innovation canvas for car manufacturers to develop next-generation autonomous vehicles,” said Mikael Söderberg, Senior Technical Director, Automotive at Luxoft.

“Having access to webOS and its cloud services platform will enable car makers to design and develop better customer experiences for autonomous mobility services,” he added.
