Rivet News Radio, which calls itself the Smart Audio Network for news, is demonstrating its embedded integration of the Rivet Auto API with OpenCar Inc. and Visteon this week at the International CES.

Rivet’s dual approach with both embedded and smartphone solutions provides multiple ways for connected car drivers to access its news content, according to Rivet News Radio CEO John MacLeod.

The Rivet Auto API enables customization of content selection to meet OEMs’ application needs, and supports content filtering based on location and user interests. It also allows OEMs to offer on-­demand weather updates, based on-location.

Bosch Automotive Technology is working with Rivet’s smartphone Integration inside Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles. Earlier this year, Rivet announced its first smartphone integration with Bosch Automotive Technologies and Abalta’s Weblink.

Rivet has a new programming partner — American Public Media. The public radio producer will share three program downloads to Rivet’s customized playlists: Marketplace, The Splendid Table and The Dinner Party.
