GENIVI Alliance expands with support from silicon & software industries

Freescale Semiconductor, Texas Instruments (TI) and MontaVista Software have joined the Alliance, demonstrating their support for an open source In-vehicle Infotainment (IVI) platform and their commitment to expand the ecosystem for infotainment in the car.

The GENIVI Alliance is an industry collaboration dedicated to driving the development and broad adoption of an open source IVI reference platform, with founding members including BMW Group, Delphi, GM, Intel, Magneti-Marelli, PSA Peugeot Citroën, Visteon, and Wind River.

The new members will contribute significant code and engineering resources for the continued development of the GENIVI Open Source Platform, and will also offer automotive OEMs and Tier 1 manufacturers increased alternatives for key hardware and software components in the resulting commercial GENIVI-based products.

Member contributions will provide everyone in the Open Source IVI ecosystem with a development platform to build compelling devices and applications resulting in a superior consumer experience. By pooling the interests and contributions of the members, the Alliance is planning to enable significant reductions in both development cost and time to market.

The GENIVI Alliance will host a panel discussion at the Telematics Detroit 2009 conference, featuring speakers from Delphi, General Motors, Intel, Visteon and Wind River. The panel will take place June 2 from 14h00 to 14:30 at the Rock Financial Showplace, Novi, MI in the Sapphire Room.
