Two years after its formation, the Genivi Alliance is accelerating cross-industry standards development. While most commercial products are still in development and will not materialise until 2012 to 2014, the alliance has done much work to pave the way and establish a governance model. Polled executives believe that if Genivi stays on track, all industry participants developing Linux for IVI will switch to Genivi in the next few years.

Automobiles need these components to create highway networks that communicate across car brands, models and personal devices. Thousands of connected applications are being conceived, but there will be nowhere to park them unless a standard interface is established. Many automakers are looking way beyond connected handheld devices and are paying close attention to safety issues, such as driver distraction.

Progress in R&D means that the integration of multimedia, navigation and Internet capability in our cars—and the future integration of tablets, smartphones and netbooks—will be ordinary. Embedded transportation solutions could bring transformative changes to the ways we interact with each other. Intel continues to work with the embedded computing and communications ecosystem to turn these possibilities into reality.
