So camera must be to such functions from the automotive world, like rear-view, available within a very short time after start of the vehicle on the screen. Hear other arguments on the topic with ConocoPhillips. The concept of COQOS allows that by an architecture such faster functions in illustrated graphics and video component available. The OS takes over the functions with specific automotive requirements, thereby leaving the infotainment applications running the Linux operating system. The concept of COQOS with his OS allows the integration of existing entertainment applications of the open source world in the vehicle and met the rigors of the automotive, in particular at the interfaces with the vehicle. “, explains Dr. Stefaan Sonck Thiebaut, CTO of OpenSynergy. AUTOSAR and infotainment to a hardware a short – and medium-term challenge will be for GenIVI, to integrate infotainment applications and AUTOSAR features on a hardware only, the HeadUnit, the processor performance future chips of to provide the world of of AUTOSAR. COQOS currently supports the Linux operating system on the side of the infotainment and makes technology with the micro-kernel an ideal prerequisite to ensure the standardized AUTOSAR environment to integrate GenIVI-based infotainment applications.
Frank-Peter Bohm, CEO of OpenSynergy, explains: Virtualization is the State-of-the-art technology to the partitioning of various automotive functions (AUTOSAR, non-AUTOSAR) different vehicle domains control unit, such as for example of head unit. This enables vehicle manufacturers and manufacturers of infotainment systems at the same time, to integrate latest infotainment applications quickly and securely in the vehicle, substantially to reduce development effort and hardware costs.” Over “the GENIVI Alliance” “GENIVI Alliance” is a consortium consisting of leading automotive manufacturers and suppliers, which the development and widespread use of a standardized automotive Infotainment-reference platform Want to move forward (in-vehicle Infotainment (IVI)). Shorter development times, faster market launches and lower development costs for IVI-based equipment and software are the objective of this work. Among the founding members of the GENIVI Alliance: BMW Group, Delphi, General Motors Corp., Intel, Magneti Marelli, PSA Peugeot Citroen, Visteon Corp. and Wind River.
About the Berlin-based company OpenSynergy OpenSynergy, develops and markets the universal operating system COQOS. The operating system COQOS allows safe running of Infotainment or AUTOSAR applications on only a hardware using virtualization technology. The modular approach of COQOS this can be used modules instruments and body control in head units, combined.
