The GENIVI Alliance, an automotive industry association driving the broad adoption of specified, open source, in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) software, will be showcasing its latest connected car technologies through a series of industry events during CES 2016 week in Las Vegas from Jan. 5-7, 2016.
Matt Jones, GENIVI Alliance president and head of future infotainment at Jaguar Land Rover (JLR), will kick off the week by delivering the keynote presentation at the Consumer Telematics Show on Jan. 5 at the Rio Las Vegas. In his speech, Jones will discuss how the efforts of JLR and other members of GENIVI are leading the charge in not only the connected car, but also opening up the ecosystem to future players.
Partnering with SAE International, GENIVI will lead two panel sessions centered around the timely cybersecurity theme during the first morning of CES 2016 on Jan. 6, 2016. As part of a full “Connect2Vehicle” track at CES, the first panel, “Connected Cars – A Landscape Fraught with Peril,” will explore how the connected car is a prime target for cybercrime and will address the growing challenges and threats of today’s highly connected vehicles. The second panel, “Automotive Security Solutions – Full of Promise” will discuss existing and emerging technologies that can deliver safer, more secure cars and driving experiences.
For the fifth consecutive year, GENIVI will welcome automotive stakeholders from around the world to its GENIVI CES 2016 Demonstration Showcase at the Trump International Hotel on Jan. 6–7. More than 25 member companies will display GENIVI technologies in commercial products from leading IVI suppliers.
The company says that, as automakers become convinced of the technical and economic value of GENIVI deliverables, interest and increased adoption of GENIVI products from global OEMs is rapidly growing. Linux-based IVI systems with GENIVI technology are now in production in vehicles on five continents, from BMW, Hyundai, Jaguar Land Rover, Suzuki, Volvo and others, with two more OEMs scheduled to launch in 2016.
Global OEM membership continues to rise as well. Great Wall Motors of China and China Motor Corp. of Taiwan recently joined the Alliance, bringing the number of OEM members to 14.
