Livio Radio received the Frost & Sullivan 2012 New Product Innovation Award for the Livio Connect Application Programming Interface.
Livio Connect, first seen in Livio Radio’s Bluetooth Internet Radio Car Kit, is technology that connects apps to cars. It eliminates the need for constant support and one-on-one integration between consumers’ smartphone apps and hardware devices, according to the Michigan-based company.
The Livio Connect API acts as a common language, allowing products to communicate securely cross-platform.
Frost & Sullivan judges products by how the companies that create those products manage growth, innovation and leadership.
Livio Radio founder and CEO Jake Sigal said the company has been demoing Livio Connect for nearly three years and the award gives Livio third-party validation.
