Luxoft, a member of IBS Group and a leading global provider of advanced application and product development services, announced the release of the iviLink Software Development Kit (SDK) for Android and Linux at the Telematics Munich 2012 Conference and Exhibition. The iviLink SDK gives developers the tools to create applications that can be run on a mobile device and a car’s head unit, radio, or rear seat entertainment system. Link is an open source in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) connectivity platform that enables seamless connectivity between mobile devices, such as smartphones and tablet PCs, and in-vehicle infotainment systems. The iviLink SDK is free to download at http://www.ivilink.net/sdk.
The SDK provides an insight into iviLink's symmetric architecture to help developers understand its working model, wide range of usage models it supports, and the tools to design, test, and deploy solutions that enhance a vehicle’s mobile device capabilities, while minimizing human capital and financial investment. With iviLink automotive OEMs can create a variety of their own car-centric apps, as well as an ecosystem supporting third-party app developers.
“We designed the open source iviLink to be a perfect reference platform for a two way symmetric communication between apps on mobile devices and a head unit of the car, whether it has a high resolution screen or just a small one-line LCD display,” said Vasiliy Suvorov, Vice President of Technology Strategy at Luxoft.
With iviLink OEM-controlled two-way app integration and multi-media content sharing, including cloud-based content, can be accomplished quickly, cost-effectively, and securely for current and future IVI systems. It even offers new technology support for head units of the models that are already in the field. Link SDK v.1.1.2 for Android and Linux includes source code, quick-start documentation and sample applications. The highlights of SDK v.1.1.2 include:
