Highlights include dedicated breakout track, case studies and solution demonstrations in the product area. Topics covered include Trends and Challenges, Incorporating Android into Infotainment (IVI) Systems, Linux-based Automotive Software, Achieving Faster Boot Time, Audio Video Bridging (AVB). The track will end with a session Delivering Multi-domain Automotive Electronic Systems with GENIVI, AUTOSAR, and Hypervisor Technology.

Featured Embedded - IVI & GENIVI Events

Delivering Multi-domain Automotive Electronic Systems with GENIVI, AUTOSAR, and Hypervisor Technology Thursday, September 19, 4:20 PM

Technical Session Automobiles contain a number of domains including AUTOSAR (OSEK) , real-time OSs, and Linux. Advances in SoCs make the sharing of resources across multiple applications more appealing. Learn about some of the recently introduced SoCs that show promise for multi-domain implementations and how a real-time hypervisor can provide the necessary separation between automotive application domains.

  • Achieving Faster Boot Time with Linux for Instrument Cluster and Infotainment Systems
    Toggle Abstract

    TECHNICAL SESSION Linux has been successfully deployed in automotive systems to achieve high performance IVI and cluster designs. One of the key requirements in these deployments is rapid system boot. This requirement can be accomplished by employing a variety of techniques to significantly reduce the time it takes to boot a Linux-based embedded system. Application examples of Linux in production vehicles will be explored, including instrument clusters, infotainment systems and the video feed from a rear-facing camera. Learn about the techniques necessary to deliver the responsiveness needed for automotive systems based on Linux.

  • Incorporating Android into Infotainment (IVI) Systems
    Toggle Abstract

    TECHNICAL SESSION Android has successfully been deployed in production infotainment (IVI) systems as the primary operating system and also in conjunction with another operating system. Learn about the market needs driving the adoption of Android and the technical options for incorporating Android into an IVI system.

  • Linux-based Automotive Software: Some Unexpected Challenges, Some Interesting Solutions
    Toggle Abstract

    TECHNICAL SESSION Linux-based software is running on multiple vehicles on the road today, including Instrument Clusters and Infotainment systems. Many of the ""speed bumps" encountered along the way were predictable, and others were completely unexpected. Automotive alliances like GENIVI have first identified and then addressed many of these concerns while member companies like Mentor Graphics, the car companies themselves, and Tier One suppliers build differentiated commercial solutions. Explore the business issues and business-focused technical challenges around using Linux-based software in Automotive.

  • In-Vehicle Infotainment: Multimedia and Connectivity
    Toggle Abstract

    TECHNICAL SESSION Jungo Connectivity's MediaCore is the market leading multimedia player middleware for In-Vehicle Infotainment systems. Jungo Connectivity and Mentor Embedded have partnered around MediaCore and Mentor's Automotive Technology Platform, in order to bring customers the best of both worlds. MediaCore middleware is already on the road in over 50 different vehicle models with many more under development. This session will focus on the recent trends in IVI multimedia systems, the major challenges that the industry faces, and how Jungo's MediaCore solves many of these issues. Some particular items that will be discussed include:
    • OS considerations in a multimedia perspective
    • Leveraging the most out of Apple, Android and other mobile media-sources
    • System upgradability. Why is it needed and how can it be done?
    • Apps in the car

Presenter: Nir Hasson, Worldwide Sales Manager, Jungo
  • The Challenges that Implementing Infotainment Systems using Audio Video Bridging (AVB) pose to System and Endpoint Developers
    Toggle Abstract

    TECHNICAL SESSION This paper describes the challenges that implementing Infotainment Systems using AVB pose to system and endpoint developers. We discuss real-life deployment examples, including considerations in system startup, network topology, and endpoint design.

    Ethernet AVB delivers many advantages, but it also comes with challenges that both hardware and software teams must consider. The standards provide Quality of Service (QoS) for AV streams by guaranteeing isochronous transmission, low latency (802.1Qav), accurate clock synchronization (802.1as), and data-rate control (802.1Qat). The real-time processing requirements of these network protocols are challenging for processors, MCUs, and software stacks. The trend towards highly responsive, deterministic Ethernet networks is seen to result in higher interrupt loads and requires changes to conventional methods for handling network interfaces.

    We consider the example of IEEE 1722. An AVB Endpoint must send/receive IEEE 1722 packets at a very high frequency: 8000 class A packets per second per stream. This high rate minimizes latency in the network, but it requires the endpoint to handle a high real-time processing load.

    The experiences we describe in Ethernet AVB Head Unit and Amplifier development are an important proof point that AVB in the car is now a reality and delivering the expected advantages.

  • Variation Abstraction in System Engineering of Large Scale Embedded Systems
    Toggle Abstract

    GUEST SPEAKER Creating, maintaining and using a large scale embedded systems product line requires conscious and careful management of variation. The sources and impacts of variation follow predictable patterns and can be effectively managed with a set of methods. This presentation will introduce the sources, methods and tool needs to effectively manage this problem space.
