Intel Keeps Using Tizen IVI To Push Linux, Wayland Into Cars

Intel was at the Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit this week promoting Tizen's In-Vehicle Infotainment initiatives for having a Linux-based Wayland environment within automobiles.

Tizen IVI continues making progress and sees adoption by multiple car manufacturers for the operating system providing the in-vehicle infotainment experience. Over the past year we have seen Tizen IVI mature a great deal as a Tizen product with support for web apps on Wayland, a sub-200MB footprint and components like systemd, Ofono, BlueZ, Connman, and other upstream components.

With the most recent Tizen IVI 3.0 M2 release new features include much better Bluetooth support, a variety of new web APIs exposed, Smack-based security, media player improvements, WebGL / video / CSS hardware acceleration, hardware acceleration of the camera and video streams, Genivi Layer Manager integration, Genivi Audio Manager integration, and the introduction of a Tizen IVI SDK. This latest release is running on modern versions of Mesa, Wayland with Weston, and the EFL libraries.

Going forward with Tizen IVI 3.0 M3 later in 2014 is an intent to be in compliance with GENIVI 6.0, AGL incremental requirements, supporting the Smack 3 domain model, multi-user support, and Crosswalk integration. Intel developers are also looking at possible Yocto support.

Those interested in learning more about Tizen IVI and the work being done on it can be found via these PDF slides from the Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit this week with the presentation by Intel's Brett Branch and by visiting Tizen.org.
