Keynote: GENIVI Drives Open Source Adoption for In-Vehicle Infotainment - Philippe Gicquel, General Manager, Cockpit, Safety, Infotainment EE Modules PSA Peugeot Citroën
Four years after its creation, the GENIVI alliance has reached maturity. While building a
specification for IVI middleware based on Linux, GENIVI has got a strong industry momentum
with over 160 company members. Serial production of head-units using a GENIVI stack started
in 2013, and other head-unit projects are in development, giving the opportunity to use feedback
and lessons learned as improvement topics. While continuously improving its specification, 
GENIVI is also working on gathering a larger Open Source community around IVI needs and
standards. GENIVI has started to manage and maintain Open Source projects and its members
are contributing to other projects upstream.

The dynamic environment, of the car, offers a growing choice to the customer - especially for Radio. There is now more choice than ever before and the means to get a live stream has grown too. It's often possible to listen to the same station at the same time by selecting FM, DAB, TV and the Internet, however, it's not always a level playing field.

Broadcast types have different challenges in the car and the best quality isn't always the best option!
This talk will create typical scenarios, which area available to the customer and develop solutions or ideas on how this could be dynamic or require interaction.

Automotive Supply Chains with Built-In License Compliance: How a Vision Can Become Reality - Claus-Peter Wiedemann, BearingPoint and Phil Odence, Black Duck Software
FOSS and especially Linux is present at virtually all stages of the Automotive supply chain and companies invest considerable efforts into determining and fulfilling the license obligations required for making deliveries license compliant. To make this process efficient, they usually take for granted the license compliance information provided by suppliers without verifying its completeness or correctness. But the believe in this widespread, good-faith approach was recently destroyed by a German court of law. As a consequence, established processes have to change. This presentation shows how SPDX, combined with standardized FOSS Management activities can create a network of trusted suppliers where compliance information is jointly managed, making it reliable and seamlessly travel with the code. This approach can greatly reduce the FOSS Management effort for all network participants.

Integrating NFC Into Your Head Unit - Samuel Ortiz, Intel
With NFC steadily making its way into upstream Linux and now being a
GENIVI abstract component, it's probably the right time to look at what
are the benefit of integrating NFC into a Linux based IVI system, and
what it takes to do so.

After looking at a few interesting use case ranging from automated
Bluetooth pairing and WiFi association, to using your NFC handset as your
key car, we will map them to actual software stacks, features and
hardware requirements.

The next part of our presentation will describe how to implement those
use cases by combining open source and upstream components like BlueZ,
ConnMan and neard. Finally we will go through a live step by step integration
of ConnMan, wpa_supplicant and neard for implementing the WiFi association
through NFC use case.

Xen on ARM: Virtualization for the Automotive Industry - Stefano Stabellini, Citrix
During the last few months of 2011 the Xen Community started an effort to port Xen to ARMv7 with virtualization extensions, using the Cortex A15 processor as reference platform.

The new Xen port is exploiting this set of hardware capabilities to run guest VMs in the most efficient way possible while keeping the ARM specific changes to the hypervisor and the Linux kernel to a minimum. Developing the new port we took the chance to remove legacy concepts like PV or HVM guests and only support a single kind of guests that is comparable to "PVH" in the Xen X86 world.

Linux 3.7 was the first kernel release to run on Xen on ARM as Dom0 and DomU. Xen 4.3, out in July 2013, is the first hypervisor release to support ARMv7 with virtualization extensions and ARMv8.

This talk will explain why ARM virtualization is set to be increasingly relevant for the automotive industry in the coming years.  We will go on to describe how Xen exploits the strengths of the hardware to meet the requirements of the industry.  We will illustrate the early design choices and we will evaluate whether they were proven successful or a failure.

We will propose a software architecture that uses virtualization with a hypervisor and that is already implemented and available. The hypervisor creates isolated software partitions with integrated operating systems like Linux. This allows consumer electronics software to be reused in the vehicle and securely and safely connected to the in-vehicle network. One of the benefits of hardware virtualization is that the processors can be used more efficiently: Several partitions on the virtualized hardware can access one core, or, vice versa, one partition can tap into the computing power of several cores. What kind of opportunities presents themselves when approaching GPU virtualization? We intend to explain the chances while responsibly dealing with the related challenges.

Consolidation of IVI Graphic Subsystems; Weston, a Wayland Compositor, and Genivi Layer Management - Nobuhiko Tanibata, Advanced Driver Information Technology
I will introduce a solution to consolidate two exist streams for IVI graphic system; one is Weston and another is Genivi Layer Management. These two components architect its own framework and can not be co-existence in one system now. The co-existence is necessary because both components are becoming big keys in Graphics part. I will present current on-going tasks which are contributing ivi-shell to Wayland community to fulfill requirements of IVI layer management and Genivi Layer Management compatible interface wrapping ivi-shell to Genivi. This solution will allow us to use both components in one system.

LXCBENCH: Understanding the Capabilities of Linux Containers in IVI Applications Through Benchmarking - Gianpaolo Macario, Mentor Graphics
With the current trends of multi-core System-on-a-Chips it becomes more appealing to In-Vehicle Infotainment system designers to consolidate into the same SoC functions that were previously deployed on separate ECUs.

Linux Containers (LXC) are increasingly getting attention from IVI system architects as a way of partitioning the software architecture of an IVI system into domains - by sharing the Linux kernel and relying on specific kernel features to provide separation and allocation of resources to containers.

The LXCBENCH Open Source Project, proposed by the Politecnico di Torino, has been launched and supported by the GENIVI Alliance in order to spread knowledge about Linux Containers and to develop tools to measure performance impacts.

This presentation will explain the current status of the GENIVI LXCBENCH Open Source Project and its possible future evolutions.

Panel: Autonomous Cars, Free/Open Source Values: Collision or Cooperation? - Andrew Wilson, Intel
It is clear the technology for driverless cars is developing rapidly and could become a reality for consumers within the next decade. The economic, social, security and privacy impact of autonomous vehicles would be far-reaching. Does the FOSS community have a leadership role to play in shaping its development? Are autonomous cars even consistent with the values and principles of the FOSS community or are they a potential tool for restricting individual freedom?

Audio Management in Tizen IVI - Jaska Uimonen, Intel Corporation
From audio management perspective the In-Vehicle-Infotainment (IVI) platforms are complex featuring multiple simultaneous users in different entertainment zones with a possible large number of connected audio outputs. The new generation of IVI platforms often choose PulseAudio as their audio server. On the other hand the legacy IVI systems audio model is usually some form of audio switching matrix where sources can be freely routed to any number of sinks. This model does not map naturally to the Pulseaudio model. In this presentation Jaska Uimonen will explain how these issues are tackled in Tizen IVI stack. The solution will consist of new logical model for audio inputs and outputs in Pulseaudio and example algorithms for routing and volume control.

Say What? Improving The Voice Control Experience - Brian Jones, Intel - Open Source Technology Center
Voice control in IVI systems should not only make driving safer, it should also be more convenient than manual input methods. Although voice control has become increasingly common in technology today, it is not without its potholes. The internet is full of humorous voice recognition failure videos. However, by embracing the strengths and weaknesses of today’s voice recognition software, we can create more useful implementations of voice control in vehicles. Identifying the needs of different applications and thoughtfully planning your verbal commands will ensure a pleasant user experience and prevent heads banging against steering wheels in frustration. This will be a look at what voice recognition can currently accomplish, where it’s appropriate, common pitfalls, and how to use it best to impress the drivers of today.

PIM - It's all About the Contacts - Patrick Ohly, Intel GmbH
Integrating contact PIM data into IVI has several unique challenges. The data must be available almost instantly after turning on the system. Users expect good integration with their mobile phones and web services. A solution must be tuned for the specific needs of the UI and at the same time flexible enough to be used in different models and car generations.

In this talk, Patrick Ohly will give an overview of different open source PIM storages and then present the solution chosen and enhanced for Tizen IVI over the last year: Evolution Data Servers stores contacts in sqlite, supporting direct reading for best performance. SyncEvolution caches phone address books using Bluetooth and PBAP. It synchronizes with cloud services via CardDAV, ActiveSync, or SyncML. folks provides a flexible unified address book.

The 'Telematics Horizon': Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) and Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I) Networking - Alison Chaiken, Mentor Graphics Embedded Software Division
V2X enables autonomy but offers immediate benefit. Recent tests are the basis for a planned Rotterdam-Vienna corridor and pending U.S. regulation. While simTD employed 120 special cars, SafetyPilot relies on after-market units in 3000 vehicles. Regulators (except Japan) have agreed on 5.9 GHz spectrum and 802.11p protocol. How will WiFi-based V2X complement LTE and satellite? Europe plans source-address transmission for tolling, while U.S. envisions anonymous broadcasts. Discussions are underway about security and privacy via PKE and location-based extensions to DNS. Linux tools for remote configuration, logging and updates now apply to fleets. Many manufacturers sell Linux-based in-vehicle and road-side radios. Higher-level Dedicated Short Range Communication, unlike usual WiFi, uses a more efficient protocol than IPV6 for briefer transmissions. What is the state of Linux support?
