Our case studies
For every challenge an LogiGo solution
The initial contact with Mitsubishi was at the end of 2015 through our commercial manager and Mitsubishi engineering in Brazil. He could then introduce them to this whole new concept of connectivity based on multimedia centers developed on Android with the possibility of having applications installed on the center itself, with all of the new experiences this would bring to the brand's customers.
Mitsubishi appointed us to provide the Outlander GT
Captivating them with all these new features was not difficult, the complicated part was showing that a company that wasn’t well-known at the time in the infotainment market would have the ability to work in partnership with an OEM assembler, although we were already supplying other large Brazilian OEMs.
After many meetings, alignments and presentations, Mitsubishi appointed us to provide the Outlander GT multimedia center, a very prestigious vehicle within the brand, and which would therefore need a quality sound with connectivity functions aligned with local engineering specifications. This would be nothing new for us, after all, audio quality and customer specifications are always respected in all of our developments.
We delivered this development, but the work continued, because with the arrival of Android Auto and Car Play on the market we had the demand to apply them in our centers. We started the task and after a few months we obtained the certification for both and were able to apply them in this center. At the time, Mitsubishi was expanding the application range for the L200 Triton, Pajero Full as well as a new launch of the Eclipse Cross brand.
Our relationship with Nissan began at the end of 2014 where we were once again invited to present a connectivity solution for the March and the Versa. As this is something that is still very new, there was still no detailed specification as to which functions and experiences these centers should have within, and it was precisely this "freedom" that allowed us to be pioneers and innovators once again.
We brought an experience of having a tablet in your vehicles
We introduced them to a platform developed on Android, something which at that time wasn’t very well known or applied in the multimedia center market, and this allowed us to bring customers an experience as if they had a tablet installed in their vehicles, enabling the installation of applications in the multimedia center itself.
The success of this center was recognized so much that we were invited once more to develop a center for the Frontier and the Sentra.
Unfortunately, we had a setback when we were contacted by Google informing that they would be launching Android Auto, and that in our new developments we would need to remove certain codes from our software programming, which would make it impossible to use some specific Google applications, such as Google Maps and Play Store.
This was something that made us very concerned, after all, the new experience that we were bringing would be lost. However, in a company that turns difficulties into opportunities, we began the development of an application which, after some internal alignments, became a platform that would include not only applications to be downloaded directly from our customers' centers, but also a series of other features. This platform was then named the COSMO platform.
Continuing our work with Nissan, the Frontier and Sentra centers were delivered. At that moment, we were asked for help, as the Nissan XTrail was arriving in Argentina and they wanted to apply this same center. So, we did some very fast work with our software engineering that allowed us to also apply this center to the XTrail in Argentina.
Our next challenge was to develop a multimedia center for the Kicks, whose national production started in May 2017. This development brought us 2 challenges. The first was that we would have around 7 months to develop it, and the second was that the center needed to be connected to the vehicle’s CAN network to retrieve certain information, as well as showing some information on the vehicle panel. These challenges were met with great professionalism and, yet again, another product was delivered with high quality, new experiences and with our COSMO platform applied, although renamed by Nissan as the Multi-App. Soon after the delivery of this center, we continued the development to add Android Auto and Car Play and after a few months we obtained the certificates and were able to add more functions to our center.
Understanding that when the issue is connectivity we cannot remain at a standstill, our last product developed for Nissan was a new center for the March and the Versa with a larger screen, improvements in hardware and software to make it faster and have more memory, enabling customers to install more applications without compromising the performance of these centers, as well as adding Android Auto and Car Play. This new center was applied in mid-2018, and because it has very high acceptance in Brazil, we worked with Nissan to approve it in 8 Latin American countries where Nissan do Brasil exports these vehicles and wished to spread this same connectivity experience.
