GENIVI Alliance

GENIVI is a non-profit industry alliance committed to driving the broad adoption of an In-Vehicle Infotainment (IVI) reference platform. GENIVI will accomplish this by aligning requirements, delivering reference implementations, offering certification programs and fostering a vibrant open source IVI community. Our work will result in shortened development cycles, quicker time-to-market, and reduced costs for companies developing IVI equipment and software.

GENIVI Reference Platform

The GENIVI platform - a common software architecture that is scalable across product lines and generations – will accelerate the pace at which new and compelling automotive applications are developed and allow new business models to emerge in the in-vehicle infotainment market. It consists of linux-based core services, middleware, and open application layer interfaces and establishes a foundation upon which automobile manufacturers and their suppliers can add their differentiated products and services.
