GENIVI® Alliance continue de générer une croissance constante

- Les 18 sociétés membres de GENIVI offrent maintenant des plateformes logicielles conformes aux équipementiers mondiaux

SAN RAMON, Californie, 12 décembre 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- GENIVI Alliance, une association œuvrant dans le secteur de l'industrie automobile et des produits électroniques grand public, dont la mission consiste à favoriser le développement et l'adoption d'une plateforme référentielle d'infoloisirs embarquée (IVI) et de source libre pour l'automobile, a annoncé aujourd'hui que les 18 sociétés membres de GENIVI offraient maintenant aux fabricants mondiaux d'automobiles des plateformes logicielles qui sont enregistrées et conformes au GENIVI.

Une plateforme logicielle GENIVI conforme fournit aux constructeurs de véhicules automobiles le système d'exploitation, l'infrastructure système et les éléments de logiciel intermédiaire nécessaires pour construire des applications différenciées et d'autres fonctionnalités qui constituent les composants logiciels de la nouvelle génération de système IVI des constructeurs de véhicules automobiles.

« Selon PSA Peugeot Citroën, GENIVI a encore plus de valeur, car il permet à de nombreux fournisseurs d'être compétitifs en termes de qualité, tout en offrant une plateforme logicielle IVI homogène qui satisfait aux exigences de toutes les industries telles que définies par l'Alliance », a déclaré Philippe Gicquel, directeur général des modules connectivité, télématique, et infoloisirs chez PSA Peugeot Citroën. « Cela permet à PSA de nous concentrer sur la différenciation pour être compétitif sur le marché de l'infoloisir ».

Lancé en août 2011, le programme de conformité GENIVI a été conçu pour définir un ensemble détaillé d'exigences techniques qui permet aux sociétés membres de répondre aux critères des demandes de propositions des constructeurs de véhicules automobiles, leur offrant ainsi les avantages d'une infrastructure logicielle élaborée conjointement et maintenue collectivement qui partage des éléments non différenciés, favorise la réutilisation dans la durée et permet de se concentrer sur leur valeur unique et de marque de leurs clients.

La dernière spécification de conformité, annoncée lors de la récente réunion de tous les membres de GENIVI qui s'est tenue à Shanghai, exige que les plateformes conformes utilisent la version actuelle du système d'exploitation Linux. Celle-ci comprend également de nouvelles fonctionnalités Bluetooth™ et un gestionnaire de nœud qui rassemblent des informations provenant de sources multiples dans le véhicule afin de permettre une commutation rapide entre les applications partageant le même affichage.

La spécification 3.0 exige également l'utilisation de composants de code source libre (open source) mis à jour qui gèrent les connexions Internet, qui établissent des connexions réseau à la demande, sélectionnent et authentifient les réseaux Wi-Fi, et permettent aux applications et services d'échanger entre elles.

Les plateformes conformes GENIVI sont offertes par des sociétés membres représentant tous les secteurs de l'industrie, y compris des équipementiers automobiles de première catégorie, des fabricants de silicium ainsi que des fournisseurs de logiciels et de services. Des groupes d'experts provenant de ces domaines d'activités technologiques ont mis au point une spécification pour un logiciel intermédiaire IVI à code source libre qui est actualisé et amélioré, au fur et à mesure des réunions tenues entre tous les membres GENIVI, avec des plateformes conformes construites par les membres qui sont conçues pour que les constructeurs de véhicules automobiles développent la nouvelle génération des premiers dispositifs IVI.

Le processus est impressionnant : les spécifications GENIVI sont appliquées par les fournisseurs de logiciels afin de créer une plateforme. Celle-ci est ensuite combinée au matériel offert par d'autres membres de GENIVI afin de permettre aux constructeurs de véhicules automobiles d'offrir à leurs clients les systèmes d'infoloisirs les plus avancés de l'industrie.

« L'acceptation de GENIVI continue de croître à un rythme rapide comme en témoigne le nombre de plateformes déjà enregistrées comme étant conformes GENIVI », a déclaré Steve Crumb, directeur général chez GENIVI Alliance. « L'ampleur du soutien reçu par un échantillon très représentatif d'experts de l'industrie ne fait qu'accroître cette dynamique ».

En outre, les projets de code source libre soutenus par GENIVI annoncés en septembre (Layer Manager, Audio Manager and Automotive DLT-Diagnostic Log and Trace) sont accessibles au public et la participation à la communauté FOSS (Free and Open-Source Software, logiciel à code source libre et gratuit) est en plein essor, comme en témoigne l'intérêt immédiat porté à ces projets par des développeurs membres de GENIVI et des non-membres, à l'intérieur et à l'extérieur de l'industrie automobile.

One of the biggest challenges when developing connected devices is identifying user value and delivering it through successful user experiences. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Mike Kuniavsky, Principal Scientist, Innovation Services at PARC, described an IoT-specific approach to user experience design that combines approaches from interaction design, industrial design and service design to create experiences that go beyond simple connected gadgets to create lasting, multi-device experiences grounded in people's real needs and desires.
Enthusiasm for the Internet of Things has reached an all-time high. In 2013 alone, venture capitalists spent more than $1 billion dollars investing in the IoT space. With "smart" appliances and devices, IoT covers wearable smart devices, cloud services to hardware companies. Nest, a Google company, detects temperatures inside homes and automatically adjusts it by tracking its user's habit. These technologies are quickly developing and with it come challenges such as bridging infrastructure gaps, abiding by privacy concerns and making the concept a reality. These challenges can't be addressed w...
The Domain Name Service (DNS) is one of the most important components in networking infrastructure, enabling users and services to access applications by translating URLs (names) into IP addresses (numbers). Because every icon and URL and all embedded content on a website requires a DNS lookup loading complex sites necessitates hundreds of DNS queries. In addition, as more internet-enabled ‘Things' get connected, people will rely on DNS to name and find their fridges, toasters and toilets. According to a recent IDG Research Services Survey this rate of traffic will only grow. What's driving t...
Connected devices and the Internet of Things are getting significant momentum in 2014. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, examined three key elements that together will drive mass adoption of the IoT before the end of 2015. The first element is the recent advent of robust open source protocols (like AllJoyn and WebRTC) that facilitate M2M communication. The second is broad availability of flexible, cost-effective storage designed to handle the massive surge in back-end data in a world where timely analytics is e...
Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) i...
"Matrix is an ambitious open standard and implementation that's set up to break down the fragmentation problems that exist in IP messaging and VoIP communication," explained John Woolf, Technical Evangelist at Matrix, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...
Cultural, regulatory, environmental, political and economic (CREPE) conditions over the past decade are creating cross-industry solution spaces that require processes and technologies from both the Internet of Things (IoT), and Data Management and Analytics (DMA). These solution spaces are evolving into Sensor Analytics Ecosystems (SAE) that represent significant new opportunities for organizations of all types. Public Utilities throughout the world, providing electricity, natural gas and water, are pursuing SmartGrid initiatives that represent one of the more mature examples of SAE. We have s...
P2P RTC will impact the landscape of communications, shifting from traditional telephony style communications models to OTT (Over-The-Top) cloud assisted & PaaS (Platform as a Service) communication services. The P2P shift will impact many areas of our lives, from mobile communication, human interactive web services, RTC and telephony infrastructure, user federation, security and privacy implications, business costs, and scalability. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robin Raymond, Chief Architect at Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice services ...
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example t...
Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality. Yet, any one factor would have an IT organization pondering its infrastructure strategy. How should your organization enhance its IT framework to enable an Internet of Things implementation? In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, James Kirkland, Chief Architect for the Internet of Things and Intelligent Systems at Red Hat, described how to revolutioniz...
Bit6 today issued a challenge to the technology community implementing Web Real Time Communication (WebRTC). To leap beyond WebRTC’s significant limitations and fully leverage its underlying value to accelerate innovation, application developers need to consider the entire communications ecosystem.
The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world. If you look into the details of what comprises the IoT, you’ll see that it includes everything from cloud computing, Big Data analytics, “Things,” Web communication, applications, network, storage, etc. It is essentially including everything connected online from hardware to software, or as we like to say, it’s an Internet of many different things. The difference ...
