RX5 and YunOS Overview:

RX 5 along with YunOS provides an entirely new and complete ecosystem for car-apps. At present, such systems rely on various third-party services like android auto and apple play. However, in case of YunOS powered car, the entire system works on a single OS i.e. YunOS. For example, you can purchase anything via Alibaba, pay for fuel and parking via Alipay etc. Thus, the user experience will be streamlined and enhanced by offering everything under one roof.

With RX 5, Alibaba will integrate all their e-commerce services with automotive technology. Also, this operating system is a subsystem of IOT (Internet Of Things). Implementing IOT will further improve data collection and information processing. Hence, the consumer would be able to make informed buying decisions on the go.
