As automotive original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) worldwide address their customers’ desire for media-rich in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) systems, many integration, cost, and time-to-market issues challenge the classic embedded development life cycle.
In order to preserve safety standards and integrate into telematics and other on-board systems while increasing options for multimedia infotainment, developers are increasingly turning to multi-core and virtualized processor and graphics architectures. Car manufacturers need software integrators who have stable, pre-integrated solutions that are ready for adaptation or customization. Wind River® provides OEMs, Tier 1 suppliers, and the software supply chain with a pre-integrated GENIVI-compliant platform, Wind River Platform for Infotainment.
