GENIVI Alliance Accelerates Connected Car Developments
LOS ANGELES, Nov. 12, 2015 /PRNewswire/ – The GENIVI Alliance, an automotive industry association driving the broad adoption of specified, open source, In-Vehicle Infotainment (IVI) software, is showcasing its latest Remote Vehicle Interaction (RVI) open source software technology at the Connected Car Expo (CCE) held in conjunction with the LA Auto Show from Nov. 16 – 18.
Work on this important connected car technology has been under development for over 18 months through the open community-based development model. It is among the first automotive connectivity software that is freely downloadable for anyone interested in assisting major automotive manufacturers to quickly develop the next generation of connected features.
Sponsored by long-time GENIVI technical contributor and automotive leader, Intel, the Alliance will showcase at CCE a Jaguar F-Type convertible fitted with a specially-made RVI connected car demo that includes remote data logging, secure software over-the-air (SOTA) updating, and smartphone app control of certain in-car features such as climate control.
Additionally, a new 2016 Jaguar XJ will be on display featuring the latest Linux-based infotainment system to launch in the market. The system is based on the work of GENIVI and the open source community.
The featured Jaguar XJ is the most recent example of how GENIVI technology is increasingly being validated by worldwide deployment, with global availability from major Tier One suppliers and with cars on the road on most continents. Currently, there are vehicles in production containing 25 GENIVI solutions with 17 additional planned in the next two years.
