Wind River and Clarion collaborate to develop Android-based in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) systems. Clarion specialises in design and manufacture of automotive audio and video products and related accessories for the aftermarket and OEMs.

Wind River will create a custom Android software platform for an automotive environment and provide software integration services to provide Clarion Malaysia's new IVI device with an enhanced user experience, especially in areas of multimedia, entertainment and connectivity. The Clarion Malaysia IVI device is based on the Freescale i.MX applications processor family.

"With two decades of automotive experience, as well as extensive Android project knowledge, Wind River provides an ideal mix of expertise to address the latest IVI trends," said Georg Doll, general manager of automotive solutions at Wind River. "Wind River delivers commercial-quality Android software and takes care of the complex matters of custom software development, integration and testing to allow customers to concentrate on developing innovative features that will distinguish their devices."

In addition to Wind River's Android software platform and services and support, Clarion is using Wind River FAST to test for device software quality and user experience. Wind River FAST is an automated software testing solution that is able to rapidly test any Android or GENIVI-based implementation for software quality, performance and compliance with the Android Compatibility Test Suite (CTS).

Wind River says its automotive portfolio also includes Wind River Platform for Infotainment, a software platform on which automotive OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers can develop sophisticated IVI devices. Wind River Platform for Infotainment is among the first GENIVI-compliant automotive solutions.
