GENIVI Alliance Delivers Connected Vehicle Software  

Responding to a growing need for vehicle connectivity solutions in the auto industry, the GENIVI Alliance has moved aggressively toward the delivery of its Remote Vehicle Interaction (RVI) technologies. After launching an RVI Expert Group in December of last year, the group has progressed rapidly and has open source software in place for many important vehicle connectivity use cases.

RVI is designed to be a platform, to be open, and to be a result of broad collaboration within the industry. As a platform, the goal is to specify, standardize, and implement core connectivity protocols and services between the in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) system and any number of remote entities (smart homes, cities, infrastructure, etc.). RVI is intended to use proven open source technologies to ensure that all protocols and services can be implemented securely and robustly. And finally, RVI will reflect standardization work already in progress with organizations like World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), Open Connectivity Foundation (OCF), and many others.

RVI’s core functionality enables three macro use cases: remote car control, connectivity to big data servers, and software/firmware over the air updates (SOTA/FOTA). The core components handle not only the basic connectivity features, but also authentication, authorization, service discovery and service invocation. The remote car control components handle vehicle integration, service protocol and Web services based on W3C standards. RVI big data handles data collection including a plan to integrate to AUTOSAR components for ECU and sensor data. Big data also handles data transmission, data reporting and data analytics. SOTA/FOTA components provide client-side functionality and software management as well as the SOTA server and integration/adoption by vendors and other open source projects.

GENIVI is actively engaging startups, academia, non-automotive software providers as well as its primary automotive community to rapidly adopt and build-out the RVI features.  RVI is already integrated into the GENIVI Development Platform (GDP). At the recent GENIVI member meeting in Paris, a demonstration of the RVI linking a Land Rover and a smart home gateway produced by OCF was shown as a proof of concept. More demonstrations linking cars to cities, to infrastructure and to other cars are in the works.  RVI is a completely open project and GENIVI welcomes individuals and companies to join the effort. Visit the project page or the github project for code. For more information, please send a note to

GENIVI Moving to github

For several years, GENIVI has maintained a git repository for its code and for other code hosted in GENIVI open source projects.  In an attempt to engage with more developers both inside and outside the automotive community, GENIVI has decided to migrate GENIVI projects into a GENIVI-branded section of the github community ( This migration will occur over time and GENIVI will maintain its current git repository for some time.
Thousands of developers use github as their “development home” and login daily.  One rationale for moving to github is to lower the bar of entry for many of these non-automotive developers to work within the GENIVI community.  A second rationale is to simplify and standardize the way in which GENIVI as a community works with code around the github tooling model.

GDP Evolves from Demo to Development Platform

To better reflect GENIVI’s new objectives and purpose of its software platform, the GENIVI Demo Platform (GDP) will be renamed and reworked to become the GENIVI Development Platform (still GDP). GDP is no longer just focused on demonstrating how GENIVI code and interfaces work, but is also focused on consolidating GENIVI software into a development environment where rapid prototyping, testing and experimentation can occur.
The GDP is a collection of individual IVI software components, standard interfaces, and a simple user interface and reference applications that collectively build and run on one of several hardware platforms. In addition to the Renesas Porter and Intel Minnowboard, the GDP also runs on the Raspberry Pi2 board, making it easy and inexpensive to reproduce a GENIVI development environment.

GENIVI has invested significantly in the creation and proliferation of the GDP by holding training sessions at each of its last three member meetings. The GDP project is open and users are welcome visit the project page and become more familiar with GENIVI technologies.

Paris All-Member Meeting Highlights

Over 380 representatives from GENIVI member organizations plus another 25 non-member and 17 press/media representatives gathered in Paris, France for the 14th GENIVI All-Member Meeting 26-29 April. Of the many highlights from the week, four are worth repeating here.
The audience enjoyed keynotes from very senior leaders from two of GENIVI’s most active adopting organizations: Renault Nissan and PSA Groupe. Mr. Alexandre Corjon, Alliance Global vice president Engineering Systems, Renault Nissan talked about the significance of the growing amount of software in the car, IVI experiences over the last 10 years, the importance of partnerships, the use of open source software to reduce time to market, cost and increase quality and the many benefits of the connected car. Mr. Thomas Quartier, head of Connected Services Development & Operation at PSA Groupe, spoke about the technical challenges for connected car services. Mr. Yves Bonnefont, executive vice president for Connected Services and Mobility at PSA Groupe, spoke about PSA Groupe’s vision and strategy for the connected car. These were just a portion of the excellent open program provided to event participants.
Technical participants noted that the technical break-out content and interaction was perhaps the best it has ever been at a GENIVI event. Many of the break-outs included many non-members representing new views and expanding the community’s reach. As always, the hands-on training was also popular and with the recent joining of four new members experienced in the cybersecurity area, GENIVI has plans to accelerate its work on vehicle security.
Always a highlight is the Member Showcase and Networking Reception. Several attendees commented that the networking during the showcase event was exceptional. Nearly 40 organizations showed demonstrations of GENIVI technologies available in the market (or in open source) today.
Finally, the media and press activities at GENIVI events have grown significantly over the last year. GENIVI welcomed 17 very inquisitive press and media representatives midweek to a media briefing that covered the alliance achievements and future goals. A good number of press clippings from attending journalists referenced a press release that was issued on 27 April entitled “GENIVI Brings Global All-Members Meeting to Paris.”
GENIVI will next gather outside of San Francisco in October for its 15th All-Member Meeting.

Student Intern Program Launched

The GENIVI board of directors recently approved funding for two part-time interns from Portland State University to be overseen by the GENIVI IT Manager. Because of the proximity to the campus, the positions will be located at the Jaguar Land Rover facility in Portland, Oregon. The initial positions will be focused on GENIVI’s IT infrastructure migration to its new hosting environment in Portland. Based on the success of this pilot program, GENIVI hopes to extend the program by including existing intern programs in our members and other interested universities.
If your company has an existing student intern program that you would like to consider migrating into this GENIVI activity, please contact Steve Crumb

Compliance Specification and Opening of Registration for V10.0

The 10th version of the GENIVI Platform Compliance Specification was released during the recent member meeting in April. Member companies can now register their products against this new version of the specification to obtain usage of the GENIVI Compliant™ trademark.
Requests for GENIVI Compliant™ products are becoming more and more prevalent in IVI production program RFQs sent out by an increasing number of automakers.
