“This new venture reinforces Luxoft's capabilities in the design, development and deployment of large-scale digital cockpit and connected mobility solutions based on open platforms,” said Loschinin. “The combined strengths of LG and Luxoft will create invaluable synergy to deploy the webOS Auto platform for digital, consumer-grade experiences to automakers and their key partners.”
