GENIVI® Alliance zeigt weiterhin stetiges Wachstum

- Mittlerweile bieten 18 GENIVI-Mitgliedsunternehmen konforme Software-Plattformen für globale OEMs

SAN RAMON, Kalifornien, 12. Dezember 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Die GENIVI Alliance, ein Branchenverband der Automobil- und Unterhaltungselektronikindustrie, der sich für die Entwicklung und Umsetzung einer offenen Plattform für Infotainment in Fahrzeugen (In-Vehicle Infotainment, IVI) einsetzt, gab heute bekannt, dass mittlerweile 18 GENIVI-Mitgliedsunternehmen den weltweiten Automobilherstellern Softwareplattformen anbieten, die als GENIVI-konform eingetragen sind.

Eine GENIVI-konforme Software-Plattform bietet Automobilherstellern das erforderliche Betriebssystem, die System-Infrastruktur und Middleware-Bausteine, um differenzierte Anwendungen und weitere Funktionen bereitstellen zu können, die als Software-Komponenten der nächsten Generation der von Automobilherstellern angebotenen IVI-Systeme anzusehen sind.

„PSA Peugeot Citroën ist der Ansicht, dass GENIVI für den Qualitätswettbewerb unter Anbietern hervorragende Dienste leistet und gleichzeitig eine konsistente IVI-Software-Plattform zur Verfügung stellt, die über alle Industrieanforderungen hinweg von der Alliance definiert wurden", so Philippe Gicquel, General Manager für Connectivity, Telematics, Infotainment Modules bei PSA Peugeot Citroën. „Damit kann sich PSA auf die Produktdifferenzierung konzentrieren, um auf dem Infotainment-Markt zu konkurrieren."

Das im August 2011 eingeführte Konformitätsprogramm von GENIVI wurde entwickelt, um eine Reihe von detaillierten technischen Anforderungen zu definieren, sodass Mitgliedsunternehmen sich für Ausschreibungen der Automobilhersteller qualifizieren können. Dies bietet den Autoherstellern den Vorteil einer gemeinsam entwickelten und gepflegten Software-Infrastruktur, die kollektive Bausteine freigibt, deren Wiederverwendung im Laufe der Zeit fördert, und ihnen die Möglichkeit gibt, sich auf den unverkennbaren Markenwert zum Nutzen ihrer Kunden zu konzentrieren.

In ihrer neuesten Konformitätsvorschrift, die auf der kürzlich stattgefundenen Versammlung aller Mitglieder in Schanghai vorgestellt wurde, wird für konforme Plattformen eine aktuelle Version des Betriebssystems Linux verlangt. Außerdem werden Bluetooth™ sowie ein Node Manager hinzugefügt, der Daten von mehreren Quellen im Fahrzeug sammelt, um ein schnelles Umschalten zwischen Anwendungen zu ermöglichen, die eine gemeinsame Anzeige verwenden.

Die Vorschrift 3.0 verlangt ebenfalls die Verwendung aktualisierter Open-Source-Bausteine, die Internetverbindungen verwalten, Netzwerkverbindungen auf Anfrage einrichten, Wi-Fi-Netzwerke auswählen und authentifizieren und die Kommunikation zwischen Anwendungen und Diensten ermöglichen.

GENIVI-konforme Plattformen werden von einer Reihe von Mitgliedsunternehmen des gesamten Wirtschaftszweigs, unter anderen auch von Tier-One Automobilzulieferern, Siliziumherstellern sowie Softwareanbietern und Dienstleistern angeboten. Expertengruppen für diese Technologieschwerpunkte haben eine Vorschrift für eine Open-Source-IVI-Middleware entwickelt, die - in Übereinstimmung mit der Versammlung aller Mitglieder - mit konformen, von Mitgliedern erstellten Plattformen aktualisiert und erweitert wird, damit Automobilhersteller IVI-Geräte der nächsten Generation gestalten können.

Das Verfahren ist beeindruckend: Die Vorschriften der GENIVI werden von Software-Anbietern zur Gestaltung einer Plattform angewendet. Dies wiederum wird mit Hardware kombiniert, die von anderen Mitgliedern der GENIVI angeboten wird, sodass Automobilhersteller ihren Kunden die modernsten Infotainment-Systeme der Branche anbieten können.

„Die Akzeptanz von GENIVI steigt weiter in einem rasanten Tempo, wie durch die Anzahl der bereits als GENIVI-konform eingetragenen Plattformen belegt werden kann", erklärte Steve Crumb, Executive Director der GENIVI Alliance. „Die breite Unterstützung durch eine große Auswahl an Branchenexperten wird die Vorwärtsdynamik nur noch verstärken."

Darüber hinaus stehen die im September angekündigten Open-Source-Projekte (Layer Manager, Audio Manager und Automotive DLT, Diagnostic Log and Trace - diagnostische Protokollierung und Nachverfolgung) nun öffentlich zur Verfügung und die Teilnahme an FOSS (Free and Open-Source Software) ist äußerst rege, wie das unmittelbare Interesse an diesen Projekten von Entwicklern, ob Mitglieder der GENIVI oder Nichtmitglieder sowie innerhalb und außerhalb der Automobilindustrie belegt.

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...
