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.

20th Cloud Expo, taking place June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY, will feature technical sessions from a rock star conference faculty and the leading industry players in the world. Cloud computing is now being embraced by a majority of enterprises of all sizes. Yesterday's debate about public vs. private has transformed into the reality of hybrid cloud: a recent survey shows that 74% of enterprises have a hybrid cloud strategy.
More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
"We build IoT infrastructure products - when you have to integrate different devices, different systems and cloud you have to build an application to do that but we eliminate the need to build an application. Our products can integrate any device, any system, any cloud regardless of protocol," explained Peter Jung, Chief Product Officer at Pulzze Systems, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
The cloud promises new levels of agility and cost-savings for Big Data, data warehousing and analytics. But it’s challenging to understand all the options – from IaaS and PaaS to newer services like HaaS (Hadoop as a Service) and BDaaS (Big Data as a Service). In her session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Hannah Smalltree, a director at Cazena, provided an educational overview of emerging “as-a-service” options for Big Data in the cloud.

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
The idea of comparing data in motion (at the sensor level) to data at rest (in a Big Data server warehouse) with predictive analytics in the cloud is very appealing to the industrial IoT sector. The problem Big Data vendors have, however, is access to that data in motion at the sensor location. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Scott Allen, CMO of FreeWave, discussed how as IoT is increasingly adopted by industrial markets, there is going to be an increased demand for sensor data from the outermos...

Whether your IoT service is connecting cars, homes, appliances, wearable, cameras or other devices, one question hangs in the balance – how do you actually make money from this service? The ability to turn your IoT service into profit requires the ability to create a monetization strategy that is flexible, scalable and working for you in real-time. It must be a transparent, smoothly implemented strategy that all stakeholders – from customers to the board – will be able to understand and comprehe...
"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 ...
