The GENIVI Development Platform is becoming the default platform for a IVI and connected car software proofs of concept, demonstrations and innovation projects for a Linux based IVI system. GDP is also a default starting point for an IVI production program based on Linux and a compliant GENIVI middleware platform..


Depending on whether you are rapidly prototyping IVI solutions or need a near-product-ready starting point for a commercial product or IVI program, the GDP is a great tool for reaching your goals.  A fully functioning GDP proves that GENIVI's component choices can work together and is an available reference for developers to integrate, test, and build their own IVI modules, applications, and connected car solutions.

It is important to understand that the GENIVI community is developing and delivering the GDP iteratively.  That means that certain functional pieces of the platform are yet to be integrated and fully tested.  We welcome your help in identifying gaps and helping to close them with contributed, open source software either produced by you or available in upstream projects.   In some ways, the GDP is a tool box that you can use to build your own IVI and connected car solution. Along your journey in GENIVI you will have to choose your path depending on your needs and preferences. And this is the case with the GDP in that there are several possible variants of GDP (a variant being a combination of  target hardware, a software baseline, and demo applications). 

One variant is presented in the following movie :
