    • IVI challenges for automakers• Smartphones and tablets set the standard, not cars• Seamless connectivity expected with every device• Tiered offerings across multiple models and model years• Overcome driver distraction restrictions• Control and enhance the driver and passenger experience• Reinforce (never dilute) the brand
    • Connected IVI Services Today• Inconsistent requirements• OEMs are seeking new supply chain that is more nimble and innovative• Solutions unique to automotive• Customers demand richer features• Traditional supply model unable to access a consumer eco-system
    • Cost up, revenue downRevenues Shorter Product Life in the Market Market Revenue Market Revenue 0 Development Costs Development Costs Rising costs of innovation Costs
    • Head unit cost in vehicles Radio Entry Media Entry Navigation High Navigation2000 2003 2005 2008 2011 2012 2013 2014 2015
    • “Groundhog day” in head unit development • Development of commodity content • OEM specifics re-implemented • Product validation • Problems solved with one supplier re-occur with others. • Limited time for innovation and new customer features 7
    • Where automakers add value OEM 1 OEM 2 OEM 3… What the HMI HMI HMI customer sees Applications Applications ApplicationsWhat could Middleware Middleware Middlewarebe common and OS and OS and OS to all Hardware Hardware Hardware
    • Linux-based IVI systems now emerging • A natural fit for multiple automakers “sharing” a middleware specification across the industry • Linux has strong pedigree in consumer electronics and enterprise networking • Rather than adding consumer features to a traditional “automotive OS”… – Take advantage of a vibrant ecosystem – Active communities of world-class developers – Mountains of pre-existing open source code to be adopted and/or modified for automotive use 9
    • The GENIVI Alliance• A non-profit organization of over 165 of the top automotive OEMs and their suppliers• Driving adoption of open source in IVI• Addressing automotive/cultural concerns• A collaboration environment for its members to contribute and maintain jointly a software infrastructure of essential but non-differentiating middleware
    • A few of the 165+ GENIVI members OEMs Other Board Members BMW Group* Bosch* General Motors Delphi* Honda Magneti Marelli* Hyundai Visteon* Jaguar Land Rover* Intel / Wind River* John Deere ARM* Nissan Mentor Graphics* PSA Peugeot Citroen* MontaVista* Renault XS Embedded* SAIC Motor Volvo Cars * GENIVI Board Members
    • GENIVI targets non-differentiating elements of solution stack HMI - Human Machine Interface • Differentiation Automaker • Integration and Tier1 • Commercial and Supplier Proprietary solutions Domain OSV • Implementation Apps Extensions Libs Competition • Non-differentiating features Open Source IVI Stack GENIVI • Consolidated Alliance Requirements Domain • Auto Specific Middleware • Validation/Compliance Open Source Kernel 12 12
    • Adopt, adapt, create model Human Machine Interface (HMI) Applications 5% Create 15% Adapt GENIVI Platform Adopt 80% Hardware 13 13
    • The GENIVI Compliance Program• A specification for open source IVI middleware • Developed by GENIVI expert groups • Refreshed and enhanced every 6 months• Now more than 46 GENIVI compliant platforms offered by GENIVI members• Compliant products from full range of membership: Tier Ones, OSVs, semis, service providers...• Members build compliant products (based on the spec) for automakers to develop next generation IVI head units
    • The GENIVI compliance specification GENIVI members build and integrate compliant products, and add their differentiating features, tools, services Audio Graphics Multimedia Speech External CE-device Connectivity Positioning Access Personal Package Networking Security Information Management Management System Infrastructure Linux operating system, drivers and libraries x86 or ARM-based Processor 15
