  5. 5. CarCar--CE Device IntegrationCE Device Integration •• Seamless CE Device integration in the car is criticalSeamless CE Device integration in the car is critical……ButBut…… –– CE technology changes many times over car lifeCE technology changes many times over car life –– LLimited uniformity among devices makes integration aimited uniformity among devices makes integration a consumer nightmareconsumer nightmare •• Very risky to install interfaces for one type/make of deviceVery risky to install interfaces for one type/make of device –– Obsolete before the car launches!Obsolete before the car launches! •• Very difficult to make single interface that supports manyVery difficult to make single interface that supports many device types/makesdevice types/makes –– e.g. Bluetooth interoperability issues are causing many care.g. Bluetooth interoperability issues are causing many car makers to question approach (more consumer problems thanmakers to question approach (more consumer problems than benefits)benefits)
  6. 6. Automotive Features and UpgradesAutomotive Features and Upgrades •• Optional features provide profitable upgrade marketOptional features provide profitable upgrade market for makers and dealersfor makers and dealers……ButBut…… –– Factory provisioning is risky, andFactory provisioning is risky, and dealers often end updealers often end up discounting features to sell car (US issue)discounting features to sell car (US issue) –– Complex systems usually have problems, and fixing them isComplex systems usually have problems, and fixing them is difficult after car is solddifficult after car is sold •• Car industry faces difficult choicesCar industry faces difficult choices –– Forgo technology to avoid riskForgo technology to avoid risk –– Risk consumer dissatisfaction because technology featuresRisk consumer dissatisfaction because technology features are out of date, donare out of date, don’’t work properly, etct work properly, etc
  7. 7. Infrastructure IntegrationInfrastructure Integration •• Integration of vehicle with roadside infrastructure isIntegration of vehicle with roadside infrastructure is next important wavenext important wave –– US Vehicle Infrastructure Integration ProgramUS Vehicle Infrastructure Integration Program –– EC GST ProgramEC GST Program –– Both programs promise to enable new level of safety andBoth programs promise to enable new level of safety and roadway management systemsroadway management systems •• But, Implementation is challengingBut, Implementation is challenging –– Difficult to require software uniformity across largeDifficult to require software uniformity across large independent regions with different problems to solveindependent regions with different problems to solve –– Early systems will be obsolete quicklyEarly systems will be obsolete quickly •• Loss of safety benefitsLoss of safety benefits •• Loss of consumer confidence, satisfactionLoss of consumer confidence, satisfaction
  8. 8. OSGiOSGi Provides Elegant Solutions for the Next Generation ofProvides Elegant Solutions for the Next Generation of Car SystemsCar Systems CE Device Integration Provide core feature bundles with car - Hands free phone, music player, etc) Provision custom device interfaces after sale -Adapt user’s CE devices to Car systems Fixes Interoperability issues AND creates new dealer market for software Feature Implementation Provision software car features at sale -Huge profit margin, low risk Provide consumers with new features after sale -Opens new market for OEMs and dealers -May be able to sell and install online for even higher profit margins Lifecycle Management Provide upgrades and bug fixes over life of car - OSGi service paradigm provides much more controllable software architecture - Motivates increased dealer service over full life of car -Allows car to keep pace with technology Infrastructure Integration Provide core application bundles with car -Safety applications -Mobility applications (e.g. probe data ) Provision new functionality from roadside -Updates to existing software -New features and interfaces -Software to adapt car to regional apps
  9. 9. Barriers and Next StepsBarriers and Next Steps •• In the car industry,In the car industry, OSGiOSGi is misunderstood by many, andis misunderstood by many, and feared by somefeared by some –– Assumes more advanced software environments than many carAssumes more advanced software environments than many car makers understandmakers understand -- comes across as geek fantasycomes across as geek fantasy –– Terrible fear of allowing third party software into carTerrible fear of allowing third party software into car •• Need to develop simple easily understood examples ofNeed to develop simple easily understood examples of benefitsbenefits –– Best opportunities are probably VII and GSTBest opportunities are probably VII and GST –– Other opportunity might beOther opportunity might be ““software definedsoftware defined”” universaluniversal Bluetooth hands free system where phone specific interfacesBluetooth hands free system where phone specific interfaces are provided into general hands free systemare provided into general hands free system •• Need to develop and implement ways to certify and validateNeed to develop and implement ways to certify and validate servicesservices –– Probably on a car maker by car maker basisProbably on a car maker by car maker basis
  10. 10. ConclusionsConclusions •• OSGiOSGi promises to revolutionize the carpromises to revolutionize the car –– General purpose computing and user interfaceGeneral purpose computing and user interface environmentenvironment –– Software based featuresSoftware based features –– Improved match between car and fast moving CE worldImproved match between car and fast moving CE world –– Ability to dynamically adapt car to varied regionalAbility to dynamically adapt car to varied regional infrastructure systemsinfrastructure systems
