Symbio, an innovator of outsourced product development solutions worldwide, has launched its In-Vehicle Infotainment (IVI) services offering and announced its membership in the GENIVI Alliance.
The rapidly changing and expanding field within the automotive industry known as IVI is one of the most challenging fields in the automotive space. It encompasses automotive infotainment products and services including music, news, Internet and multimedia, navigation and location, and telephony. The GENIVI Alliance was formed as a result of the auto industry recognizing that infotainment expectations are set by the major consumer sector players.
“Symbio’s goals for companies developing IVI equipment and software are in lock step with GENIVI,” said Jacob Hsu, CEO of Symbio. “By aligning our services with the open and scalable GENIVI platform, we help accelerate the pace at which new automotive applications can be developed and reduce costs.
With Symbio’s IVI services, engineers and designers can focus on critical safety issues and the user friendliness of the system, instead of spending valuable development time on graphics, multimedia integration, optimization and implementation of tools.”
Symbio’s IVI services include:
* Software development
* Software integration
* User interface and user experience implementation
* Software testing and quality assurance
* Technical consultation on the implementation of user interfaces
* Test and measurement systems
* Training on multimedia and graphics technologies and tool chains
