The GENIVI Alliance, an automotive industry association driving the development and adoption of an open In-vehicle Infotainment (IVI) reference platform, announced that members Renault and Nissan will launch a new joint program to deliver a common IVI system based on software developed within the Alliance membership.
This new automotive software program will supply all low-to-mid and high-class Renault and Nissan vehicles globally and will be supplied by Robert Bosch GmbH.
“Our Renault-Nissan team believes GENIVI will become the new standard automotive operating system that will be used in in-vehicle infotainment systems. A GENIVI solution will allow both an increase in quality level and a decrease in the cost of these systems due to reuse of many software modules.” – Alexandre Corjon, Renault-Nissan Alliance Global Vice President, EE & Systems Engineering
The new common IVI system will use GENIVI Compliant™ middleware that allows Renault-Nissan to use substantially the same software platform with different hardware solutions to cover the spectrum of low to high-end products. This initial offering also signifies the team’s increased involvement in the Alliance with the aim to improve its delivery of IVI software and standard interfaces.
The Renault-Nissan team will also offer to reuse middleware key components created in this program with other Tier 1 suppliers in future programs.
