AISIN Provides Navigation Services to MUTUALISM Via the Aisin LBS-SDK

AISIN’s advanced technology expedites development of next generation personalized mobility services

PLANO, TX – September 8, 2023 – AISIN Corporation, consistently ranked as a top 10, Tier One global automotive supplier, has partnered with the MUTUALISM platform, an ecosystem of state-of-the-art technologies and services that work together to build a safe and superior In-Vehicle Infotainment (IVI)  experience. AISIN will introduce its new Location-Based Services Software Development Kit (LBS-SDK) to the platform as part of its software-first initiative.

While mostly known for parts under the hood, AISIN was the first supplier to create in-vehicle navigation systems and has led the market over the last four decades as navigation has evolved from early embedded systems to vehicle-first hybrid systems. In 2021, AISIN launched a fully integrated cloud- based navigation system and now the LBS-SDK will join the vast lineup of parts and technologies that redefine the future of mobility.
