The Chinese online UGC audio community and interactive audio entertainment platform Lizhi is to partner with Pateo, a fellow China-based Internet of Vehicle (IoV) system developer, in a move it says will boost the development of Lizhi’s audio products in Pateo’s loV system.
Pateo’s software design is based on a Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) to offer users software applications for cockpit, vehicle and autonomous vehicle use scenarios. To date, it has been integrated into close to 100 vehicle models from 30 automobile brands across more than 30 countries and regions.
This partnership will, the parties hope, enable a synergetic collaboration bringing together sophisticated technologies from their respective fields. Lizhi says it will capitalize on Pateo’s expertise in IoV and smart cockpits to further optimize the application of in-car audio products in various usage scenarios and provide users with more diverse in-car audio entertainment options.
Lizhi says its aim is to offer users a high-quality in-car audio experience leveraging its personalized audio content offerings, AI-powered intelligent recommendation and distribution systems, as well as the company’s in-house audio technology solution Doreme. Both Lizhi and Pateo will also actively work on exploring usage scenarios for in-car audio and the potential of in-car audio applications.
“We are very pleased to cooperate with Lizhi to jointly advance the development of the Internet of Vehicles ecosystem,” said Ken (Yilun) Ying, founder and CEO of Pateo. “Pateo will utilize its unique software and hardware capabilities to promote the application of Lizhi’s audio products in more in-car scenarios and at the same time accelerate the integration of Lizhi’s audio products into automotive systems.”
