RealVNC assists with making Parkopedia app MirrorLink compliant

Tom Blackie, VP Automotive, RealVNC

RealVNC, the global provider of VNC® remote access technology and premier MirrorLink™ supplier, has assisted Parkopedia in testing and developing their parking assistance application to ensure it achieves MirrorLink certification™.

Parkopedia is a parking information provider used by millions of drivers in 6000 cities across 52 countries. RealVNC and Parkopedia have worked collaboratively to ensure the Parkopedia app is MirrorLink ready. As part of the service, RealVNC has provided Parkopedia with developer tools for testing the app, as well as assistance with debugging the app.

Creating a MirrorLink compliant app is beneficial to all parties involved. For the end user, it means that more apps are available to use safely whilst in the car without distracting the driver. For Parkopedia, it means that more drivers will be using the app on the move, as it was intended for, to assist with finding a parking space. Finally, for the automotive manufacturer it is important to have a wide variety of certified apps so that end users can benefit from MirrorLink and the diversity of apps available.

Eugene Tsyrklevich, Parkopedia’s CEO, commented: “MirrorLink is the leading industry standard for car-smartphone connectivity and is designed for maximum interoperability between a wide range of smartphones and cars. We have enjoyed developing a MirrorLink enabled Parkopedia app which we feel aptly demonstrates MirrorLink’s versatility when optimizing content for responsible and safe driving.”

Tom Blackie, VP Automotive, RealVNC, said: “Working to help Parkopedia has been a great way to utilise the skills we have with regards to MirrorLink Certification. We hope that in the future we can help further app developers in the same way and offer all the required tools to make a MirrorLink compliant application.”
