GENIVI and JASPAR will align IVI standards
May 28, 2013 by John Day
The GENIVI Alliance has entered into a liaison agreement with JASPAR (Japan Automotive Software Platform and Architecture) to align networking software requirements for automotive Bluetooth and Ethernet, specific to in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) systems and related applications by year-end.
The agreement is expected to help drive the collaboration of defined standards for these two communications technologies as areas of mutual interest for open source requirements alignment.
“The collaboration between JASPAR and GENIVI is a prime example of another technical relationship event that will ease integration of wired and wireless communications for next generation infotainment systems,” said Matt Jones, vice president, GENIVI Alliance. GENIVI will continue to leverage open source development to further encourage universally accepted standards throughout the industry.
“Our partnership will leverage open source development and universally accepted standards for Bluetooth and Ethernet, ensuring the most cost effective and robust implementation of these technologies,” said Hideki Goto, chair of Next-generation High-speed In-Vehicle Network WG of JASPAR.
