In-vehicle infotainment (IVI)
Linux-based systems, with their pedigree in both consumer electronics and enterprise networking, are a natural fit for advanced IVI systems. Rather than adding consumer features to a traditional “automotive OS,” OEMS and Tier 1 customers are using Linux to take advantage of a vibrant ecosystem loaded with active communities of world-class developers who have access to pre-existing open source code.
The GENIVI Alliance and companies such as Mentor Graphics have helped OEMS and Tier 1 suppliers make the transition from a proprietary OS system to open source with the benefit of an automotive community, allowing them to focus on the value-added features in their infotainment systems.
