GENIVI compliant IVI (in vehicle infotainment) – how far can you go?
GENIVI was founded in March 2009, as an open source alliance to provide a standard platform for Infotainment systems designers. Version 4.0 of the specification has now been released, and vendors are busy announcing compliant products. As the specifications become more feature-rich, they will undoubtedly become more usable - but how much can be used now, and where are the gaps? What is supplied as open source and what still needs to be purchased as a commercial solution? What hardware support is available? Does Android have a role to play? This presentation will highlight the current status of the GENIVI initiative, and feature presentations from Mentor and ecosystem partners on the implementation options.
