Track: Plenary Session
Now that it has become mainstream a growing number of companies and public bodies claim to have a stake in open source. Do we still need open, source organizations and foundations? Are they joining the ranks of endangered species? Participants in the panel will share with the audience their perspectives on a) the future of open source foundations and their usefulness in an evolving IT industry and b) the role they can play in Europe in a context increasingly structured by publicly-driven collaborative innovation initiatives (H2020, ECP, FI-PPP, etc.).
The GENIVI alliance (www.genivi.org) has made significant progress in terms of requirement standardization for IVI systems and delivery/reuse of open source software. Production vehicles with a GENIVI compliant infotainment system are being launched in year 2013. This talk will present the status of the work and the dissemination activities towards the open source community that have been undertaken. The talk will be prepared and delivered by French participants of the GENIVI project, namely Philippe Colliot and Fabien Hernandez (from PSA, representing the OEM standpoint), Bruno Grasset (from Valeo, representing a Tier 1 standpoint) and Philippe Robin (GENIVI program manager that will present the many challenges encountered in such a large collaborative project).
