Magneti Marelli, Wind River provide Genivi-compliant infotainment platform for BMW
Magneti Marelli will lead the development efforts, contributing its automotive know-how in integrating complex systems and technologies for the vehicle environment. Wind River provides an integrated, tested and validated IVI software platform based on the Genivi open source standard, as well as customization and consulting services.
Magneti Marelli and Wind River have partnered to deliver a reference platform for in-vehicle infotainment, compliant with the emerging Genivi industry standard. The Genivi open source platform standard aims to provide automobile manufacturers and their suppliers a common underlying framework to simplify elements of the in-vehicle infotainment development process that have historically been duplicated across the industry.
According to Wind River, the IVI solution can support a range of control module or “head unit” architectures and is available and customizable for all car manufacturers. Open source software creates an interesting option for tier 1 suppliers to use as a foundation for IVI devices because it provides flexibility and significant opportunities for innovation, especially in the areas of advanced in-vehicle information, entertainment and connectivity. It also enables sophisticated navigation, telematics and multimedia devices inside automobiles.
The IVI solution will first appear as next-generation entry & mid level IVI systems for BMW Group vehicles. Wind River and Magneti Marelli said they will continue to work together to maintain and evolve the Linux reference platform as the basis for future product developments.
