Open source auto infotainment group forms



Several car manufacturers and suppliers have launched an alliance for open source collaboration on In-Vehicle Infotainment (IVI) systems. The new Genivi Alliance is developing an IVI reference design and middleware based on an Intel Atom platform running Wind River Linux, says the group.


The founding members of the Genivi Alliance are BMW Group, Delphi, General Motors, Intel, Magneti Marelli, PSA Peugeot Citroen, Visteon, and Wind River. The alliance is open to further membership from other automotive, consumer electronics, communications, and application development companies, says Genivi.
