Wind River has announced the Wind River Connectivity Solution Accelerator for Linux that the firm said allows consumers to connect their iOS devices to Linux-based in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) systems. The solution enables the car’s IVI unit to act like an accessory to view and play content from an iOS device docked into the vehicle. After connecting to a consumer’s iOS device via Wind River software, the IVI unit can play multimedia content such as music and videos, and the car steering wheel can be used as a remote control, described the company.

Devices supported include iPhone, iPad, iPad mini, iPod and iPod nano. The software further expands existing Wind River iOS connectivity offerings, including Wind River Connectivity Solution Accelerator for Android, which allows Android-based IVI systems to view and play content from iOS devices, stated the firm.

The Wind River automotive portfolio also includes Wind River Platform for Infotainment, an IVI platform based on the Yocto Project open source development infrastructure. Wind River portfolio covers a range of technologies and solutions including GENIVI, Android, Tizen IVI and VxWorks; tools such as Wind River Diab Compiler; and virtualization and hypervisor technologies.
