Developing open software for IVI and the connected car.

GENIVIĀ® is a nonprofit industry alliance committed to driving the broad adoption of open source, In-Vehicle Infotainment (IVI) software and providing open technology for the connected car.

GENIVI Alliance, the organization, responsible for introducing Linux and open source software into the in-vehicle, infotainment domain, has successfully delivered several assets through its vehicle domain interaction strategy and is evolving into an alliance integrating multiple, in-vehicle operating systems required for a fully integrated vehicle cockpit.

In recent years GENIVI has focused on the integration challenges in the vehicle and outside, which include in particular cross-domain challenges (safety critical vs. non-critical domains), which brings with it diverse operating systems (Linux, Android, AUTOSAR Adaptive(tm) platform, plus a small handful of remaining proprietary and real-time operating systems).

As the industry moves toward combining multiple vehicle cockpit domains (IVI, cluster, connected devices) into a single silicon solution, often with multiple operating systems, automakers are exploring the concept of a central compute platform, coined by some in the market as cockpit computing.

The alliance provides its members with a global networking community of over 100 companies, joining connected car stakeholders with world-class developers in a collaborative environment, resulting in free, open source middleware as well as open standards for interoperability in diverse systems.

Our work is informed by automotive trends and results in standard interfaces and software that shorten development cycles, speed time to market, and reduce costs for companies adopting and producing automotive solutions.
