Wind River, Mentor Graphics, Cononical and Monta Vista have announced the first platforms compliant with the GENIVI specification, marking the first availability of software products intended to standardise in-vehicle-infotainment (IVI) systems across car models and manufacturers.

The GENIVI specification is a Linux-based platform which aims to simplify the process of developing and qualifying an infotainment system, while promoting compatibility throughout the automotive industry. The drive for platforms with common features should encourage more companies to develop IVI systems or sub-systems.

GENIVI solutions from Wind River
Earlier this year, Wind River and Magneti Marelli teamed to create a GENIVI open-source standard compliant IVI solution for the automotive industry to be used by BMW.

Each of the solutions targets features that are today more commonly found in leading consumer devices, such as 3D graphics, connectivity and improved user interfaces. It promises to deliver to the driver what is becoming familiar in other areas of personal and home entertainment; a multimedia experience with comprehensive connectivity.

According to GENIVI, automotive OEMs are now specifying GENIVI compliance in their requests for proposals for future infotainment systems, which means software suppliers must now demonstrate they meet the compliance requirements.
