The automotive industry is revving up to turn the in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) system into the focal point for the intelligent connected car. Next-generation IVI systems will serve as the command center that connects critical telematics functionality with access to multimedia and driver-defined applications, all presented in a sophisticated human-machine interface that delivers a unique driving experience. For IVI system suppliers, building complex differentiated products and realizing market success starts with choosing a proven, standards-based run-time platform provided by a company with a solid track record in the automotive industry—such as Wind River®.
Wind River Platform for Infotainment is a Linux-based, GENIVI®-compliant run-time platform specifically tuned for the IVI market. The platform takes full advantage of open source community innovations and flexibility while leveraging the Wind River comprehensive build system and development tools, providing a solid foundation on top of which to add functional differentiation and value-add applications. IVI system developers use our commercial-grade platform to reduce overall development cost, minimize project risk, and shorten project timelines.
