President's Message

With the autumn activities of GENIVI in full swing, I wanted to take a moment and thank you for your interest in the alliance.

I’ve heard very good feedback about the recent GENIVI Technical Summit in Bangalore and more detail is available below.  I’m also quite happy to announce the contribution of the RAMSES software.  This framework for sharing graphics in a multi-domain context is one example of delivering quality solutions that enable the domain interaction functions needed by OEMs today.

Please take a moment and read about RAMSES and upcoming activities planned through the remainder of the year, including the popular GENIVI Demonstration Showcase and Networking Reception planned for CES2019 in Las Vegas.

Thanks for your interest in GENIVI,

Peter Schoenenberg
President, GENIVI Alliance

Upcoming Events

GENIVI Receives Open Source Framework for Graphics Sharing

Earlier this month, GENIVI received a significant code contribution of a software package called RAMSES. This software, now available in the GENIVI github repository, signals a significant delivery of the GENIVI vehicle domain interaction strategy.  RAMSES is an abbreviation for "Rendering Architecture for Multi-Screen Environments".

Automakers are constantly looking for ways to make the in-cockpit experience the very best for their customers.  One approach is to provide a unified experience across any number of in-vehicle displays including cluster, IVI and even connected smart devices.  And RAMSES was developed for just such a purpose.

First GENIVI Technical Summit Inspires New Companies, Developers

GENIVI successfully executed its first technical summit in Bangalore, India, this month and drew over 150 participants including representation from automotive titans Toyota, GM, Mercedes-Benz, Volvo and BMW.  Even more impressive was participation by 20 non-member companies, some of which have strong automotive portfolios while others, like Microsoft, Caterpillar and Boeing, were more drawn to the compelling program topics.  GENIVI sends special thanks to the events sponsors Hyundai Motor Group and HARMAN.

The program focused almost exclusively on early results of the domain interaction strategy with a special emphasis on the Graphics Sharing and Distributed HMI Compositing project and the Hypervisor project.  The program content is available on the GENIVI wiki.

Dialog on the Future of Radio in the Car Continues

During the recent Radio Show event in Orlando, Florida, GENIVI, along with representatives from Ford and Audi, continued the important dialog between radio broadcasters and automakers about the future of radio in the car.  

One might ask, “What’s the draw for automakers to establish a conversation with the radio industry?”  This was one of many questions dealt with during the panel discussion that featured Ford’s Scott Burnell and Audi’s Martin Koch, along with GENIVI Executive Director, Steve Crumb.

This software, now available in the GENIVI github repository, signals a significant delivery of the GENIVI vehicle domain interaction strategy.  RAMSES is an abbreviation for "Rendering Architecture for Multi-Screen Environments".

Automakers are constantly looking for ways to make the in-cockpit experience the very best for their customers.  One approach is to provide a unified experience across any number of in-vehicle displays including cluster, IVI and even connected smart devices.  And RAMSES was developed for just such a purpose.

RAMSES is an advanced graphics programming framework that enables graphics definition, storage and efficient distribution on any number of displays within a vehicle including connected smart devices.  RAMSES renders 3D content with a major focus on bandwidth and resource efficiency.  The software will be deployed in production vehicles this year and is of very high quality.

As part of the recent Technical Summit in Banaglore, expert engineers gave both an overview presentation of RAMSES as well as a full-day, hands-on tutorial on the usage of RAMSES for developers.  The overview presentation can be found on the GENIVI wiki.

GENIVI is grateful for this significant contribution and welcomes the broader automotive software community to download the code and use it in their domain interaction demonstrators and products.

First GENIVI Technical Summit Inspires New Companies, Developers

GENIVI successfully executed its first technical summit in Bangalore, India, this month and drew over 150 participants including representation from automotive titans Toyota, GM, Mercedes-Benz, Volvo and BMW.  Even more impressive was participation by 20 non-member companies, some of which have strong automotive portfolios while others, like Microsoft, Caterpillar and Boeing, were more drawn to the compelling program topics.  GENIVI sends special thanks to the events sponsors Hyundai Motor Group and HARMAN.

The program focused almost exclusively on early results of the domain interaction strategy with a special emphasis on the Graphics Sharing and Distributed HMI Compositing project and the Hypervisor project.  The program content is available on the GENIVI wiki. 

A major highlight of the Summit was the developer training provided by expert engineers on the recently contributed RAMSES software (see previous article on this topic).  RAMSES is an advanced graphics programming framework that enables graphics definition, storage and efficient distribution on any number of displays within a vehicle including connected smart devices, resulting in a more unified user experience.  RAMSES will be deployed in production vehicles later this year and the open source code can be found on the GENIVI github project.

Post-event interviews with several participants ranging from senior leaders to developers were all very positive about the outcome of the two-day gathering.  Many developers walked away with not only new insights, but also coding skills that can be employed in their day jobs.  One senior manager noted that GENIVI could return to India every year and reach hundreds more that are hungry to learn about automotive software development.  Stay tuned for more about Technical Summits being planned in 2019.

Dialog on the Future of Radio in the Car Continues

During the recent Radio Show event in Orlando, Florida, GENIVI, along with representatives from Ford and Audi, continued the important dialog between radio broadcasters and automakers about the future of radio in the car.  

One might ask, “What’s the draw for automakers to establish a conversation with the radio industry?”  This was one of many questions dealt with during the panel discussion that featured Ford’s Scott Burnell and Audi’s Martin Koch, along with GENIVI Executive Director, Steve Crumb.

GENIVI and the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) have been exploring how the very long and very quiet relationship between the radio and automotive industries needs to improve.  With radio being a primarily one-way broadcast, trends within the vehicle around personalization, localization, and two-way dialog are leaving radio behind – and the radio industry is not willing to settle for that model.

GENIVI and NAB formalized this dialog during a joint workshop in June co-located with the TU-Automotive show in Novi, Michigan.  This workshop sparked interest in several automotive OEMs and suppliers and has become the catalyst for more joint activities planned during the CES2019 show, next year’s NAB Show in April and the GENIVI all member meeting in May.  Details will become available in coming weeks so stay tuned. 

To participate in this dialog, please contact Steve Crumb (scrumb@genivi.org).
