GENIVI Automotive manufacturers and suppliers use a proven automotive prototype running on Intel® Atom™ processor for GENEVI platform.

According to GENIVI the development of the open source GENIVI platform is well underway, with a summer 2009 launch for the first technical deliverable and it is based on a tested and proven automotive prototype - running on the Intel® Atom™ processor.

To help the auto industry to rapidly implement infotainment and Internet-related features Intel is collaborating with automotive manufacturers and suppliers to launch the GENIVI Alliance a non-profit industry association whose mission is to drive the broad adoption of an In-Vehicle Infotainment open source development platform.

With GENIVI, the development window can be dramatically reduced and the feature content extended, said Visteon Corporation's Christian Feltgen, Global Director, Audio and Infotainment Systems.

Intel says that it will support open and collaborative improvement environments for in-vehicle infotainment and accelerate adoption of standard architectures and technology such as the Intel® Atom™ processor.
