In northern Europe, Symbio’s 130 employees in seven offices focus on automotive solutions that power the technology inside millions of automobiles.

The northernmost office of Symbio in Finland is located in Oulu, where the Symbio Automotive Team makes amazing magic happen under the Northern Lights. There, they develop center-console software for information and entertainment equipment manufacturers around the world. More than 95% of Symbio Oulu’s production serves the automotive industry.

Their latest innovation is the Symbio Elysian SW Stack, also known as the Smart Auto. It is an infotainment solution that is built on top of the Linux Operating System (OS). This console is a more advanced version of the Symbio Connected Car system, which consists of pre-certified implementations of all smartphone replication standards including Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Baidu CarLife and Smart Device Link. This enables the driver to manage features such as tuner functions, media player, vehicle control functions, Bluetooth connectivity, hands-free phone management, climate control and navigation from the car display.

This flexible, yet affordable infotainment system has been successfully adopted by some of the leading car manufactures, and recognized by CRN (Computer Reseller News) as one of Top 30 Hot Products and won the Technology Innovation Award at the 2019 Beijing CIFTIS (China International Fair for Trade in Services).
