GENIVI compliant IVI (in vehicle infotainment)



GENIVI was founded in March 2009, as an open source alliance to provide a standard platform for Infotainment systems designers. Version 2.0 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.

What You Will Learn

  • Current IVI trends, and the infrastructure needed to implement them
  • About GENIVI, its current status and future direction, and how to gain GENIVI compliance
  • What is Open Source and what it is not: Which components of the IVI system remain proprietary and how do they integrate with Open Source?
  • How to solve the integration problem : Building in adjacent functions, such as AutoSar and Android-based applications
  • A short overview of the current IVI design solution provided by Mentor Graphics
