The GENIVI Alliance, an industry collaboration dedicated to driving the development and broad adoption of an open source In-vehicle Infotainment (IVI) reference platform, today announced an expansion with significant new members from the silicon and software industries contributing to the infotainment ecosystem.
Freescale Semiconductor, Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) and MontaVista Software have joined the Alliance. By joining the initial founding members of the GENIVI Alliance (BMW Group, Delphi, GM, Intel, Magneti-Marelli, PSA Peugeot Citroën, Visteon, and Wind River), these organizations are demonstrating their support for an open IVI platform and their commitment to expand the ecosystem for infotainment in the car.
The new members will contribute significant code and engineering resources for the continued development of the GENIVI Open Source Platform. In addition, the new members will offer automotive OEMs and Tier 1 manufacturers increased alternatives for key hardware and software components in the resulting commercial GENIVI-based products.
