Kicking off the Oppo Developer Conference (ODC 2022), the Chinese brand unveiled its multi-platform Pantanal smart system, Oppo Carlink solution for enhanced smartphone-car integration and Oppo Sense health algorithm, along with a Rs 23 billion plan to support developers and creators who work with it.
One of Oppo’s plans is to build an open, symbiotic and thriving ecosystem for all types of devices. Pete Lau, senior vice president and chief product officer at Oppo, said, “We will live in a world where smart devices are everywhere. These smart devices must not simply be connected, but integrated to serve users and help realize the future of the Internet of Experience.”
Oppo’s Newly Revealed Technologies Explained
During ODC 2022, Oppo presented Pantanal, which is its first cross-platform system designed to break down the boundaries between different devices and systems. It can understand and anticipate users’ needs and deliver services at the right time and in the right way. “As a cross-platform system, Pantanal will make it easier for developers to develop and deploy services on multiple platforms, reducing costs and increasing efficiency,” said Oppo.
Oppo’s Carlink solution offers smartphone and car integration. The idea is to help users access a smartphone’s computing power and application ecosystem without altering existing in-vehicle infotainment systems, while smartphones can deliver services through the car via software pushes.
Oppo also announced a partnership with SAIC Motor to work together on the integration of smart devices and automobiles. Oppo had previously signed an agreement with Tesla China to use its smartphones as digital keys for the Tesla Model 3 and Model Y in China.
The company also announced the debut of its company-developed Oppo Sense algorithm, which features advances in cardiovascular health, fitness and sleep tracking. It will also expand its collaboration with global partners to improve connectivity between IoT products and develop healthcare management applications, hardware and services designed to help detect the onset of certain chronic diseases.
Oppo allocates Rs 23 billion to developers
‘Oppo Open Platform’ supports developers in areas such as application services, graphics processing and interconnectivity. More than 300,000 developers and 700,000 creators have joined Oppo to distribute their products and services to users across multiple platforms.
It also announced that it will allocate Rs 23 billion in resources to its Gravity Plan in 2023 to support developers in building an ecosystem together.
During the event, Oppo also shared updates from its first Research Institute Innovation Accelerator, which recently ended. The program was launched earlier this year to empower technology professionals and entrepreneurs to bring their innovative solutions to life and create a better future together with OPPO.
From 536 submissions from 39 countries and regions, ten winning proposals were selected, with each proposal exploring innovative solutions to challenges in Affordable Technology and Digital Health. In addition to receiving $46,000 in donations, the ten winners will receive support from Oppo and its partners to help them develop and implement their ideas.
