The automotive industry is on the cusp of a phenomenal transformation. Connected Car is the next revolution where vehicle owners look up to their car as a companion that not only drives but also assist, safeguard, communicate, and recommend. Powered by a blend of sensors, artificial intelligence and big-data analysis, cars are becoming the greatest “mobile device” and owners becoming “connected drivers”. In summary, smartphone on wheels is the new analogy of cars today. Huge scope of innovation lies before automotive manufacturers and developers in Connected Car arena. Mobiliya, with its strong domain experience, is focused to contribute through new ideas and system integration services for the automotive industry.
There are multiple operating systems on which IVI (In-Vehicle Infotainment) devices function. The popular ones are Automotive Grade Linux, TIZEN, GENIVI IVI platform, and recently Android is gaining significant consideration as OS for IVI devices. Mobiliya extend its platform engineering capabilities, across these operating systems, to its automotive customers to develop and maintain their IVI software:
AUTOSAR (AUTomotive Open System ARchitecture) brings in several benefits to the automotive industry that reduces complexity and promotes reusability of components for standardized development of connected cars. Mobiliya’s AUTOSAR expertise offers:
Traditional application development for automotive (which requires CAN data from the Car ECU) demands the use of either actual car hardware for the ECU data or emulated CAN hardware. Here the main challenges faced by the developers are:
To overcome and address these challenges, Mobiliya has designed a robust tool called Auto IDE for developers to implement CAN data driven apps seamlessly for Android based IVI platforms. The tool abstracts the complexity of CAN data access for the end application and does not require the developer to be an automobile expert. The emulator of Auto IDE is cross platform and can run on Windows, Linux, and Mac OS and connects to an actual car head unit (Android based) or an Android phone or tablet.
Targeted end users of Auto IDE:
Any developer (from Android development community) developing mobile / head unit apps using Auto extensions
QA, app verification teams of vendor, auto manufacturer
In-house OEM team, outsourced device development vendor integrating automotive components to Android platform
