What is the GENIVI Development Platform?

The GENIVI Development Platform is an Open Source project for automotive with three main goals;

  • Deliver a system developers can use to create software components for automotive.
  • A platform focused on automotive use cases to enable developers to create applications and demos targeting the industry.
  • A starter kit that can be downloaded and customized for different hardware focused on automotive use cases.

  • Stakeholders can constantly reprioritize the project backlog but for a brief intro consider the GDP-Next presentation.

To achieve these goals, GDP has two main deliverables from the official project, plus spins.

  • GDP Releases: images released regularly to make the integrated software easy to consume.
  • GDP Master: integration point where more experienced developers can build from scratch their own images.
  • GDP Spins are endorsed variations of GDP developed by other teams/companies to show off a unique HMI or application standard.

Check a more detailed description of GDP components through the wiki page GDP In Detail. You can more specific answers to these and similar questions in our GDP FAQ.
