The trend for connected technology will continue to grow as more consumers use smartphones and tablets for their computing needs. Consumers are increasingly more aware of the convenience connected technology brings into their lives. This has led hardware and software manufacturers as well as service providers to integrate this technology to virtually everything we use today. Televisions, refrigerators, automobiles, medical devices, and even shoes are connected to give users more information.
Bsquare, a global provider of embedded solutions and enabler of smart, connected systems, has unveiled its Tizen-based HTML5 Human Machine Interface (HMI) for automotive connected solutions. This new platform was unveiled at the Telematics Japan 2013, Oct. 8-10 in Tokyo and the GENIVI Alliance All Members Meeting, Oct. 8-11 in San Diego, Calif. GENIVI is a non-profit industry alliance bringing awareness for increased adoption of In-Vehicle Infotainment (IVI) open-source development platform.
Implementing an IVI requires collaboration between many different industries. Automobile manufacturers, telecoms, software developers, entertainment companies, and others have to come together in order to provide the consumer a solution that they can consume without any compatibility issues with many of the devices everyone owns. By offering an IVI platform that allows manufacturers to focus their efforts on core capabilities, they will be able to integrate these solutions seamlessly.
The Bsquare Tizen-based HTML5 HMI will be demonstrated at both events into a GENIVI Alliance automotive data simulator. The new technology will give automotive OEMs as well as other developers and service providers a platform that will allow them to offer products and services to the automotive industry and connected car technologies.
The Bsquare HTML5 Rendering Engine allows embedded developers the ability to create powerful and engaging UIs that protects propriety code and gives the consumer an easy-to-use platform with rich applications on mobile and embedded devices.
The entire line of Bsquare products and services gives players in the automotive industry solutions for delivering state of the art quality connected automotive systems with: extensive embedded development experience and expertise; automotive system integration; technology products and development tools; and quality management and test services.
