The word Automotive, “Internet of Things” and Tizen are coming together to form some exciting possibilities and one of them is in the Automotive field. GENIVI, a non profit organisation committed to the adoption of In-Vehicle Infotainment (IVI) Open-Source development platform, are hosting Open Automotive ’14. IVI covers such things as entertainment including music, news and multimedia, we also have navigation and location services, telephony, internet services and much much more.


Presented by the GENIVI Alliance and open to all, OPEN Automotive ‘14 will explore, along with carmakers, leading suppliers, automotive consortia and industry analysts, the relationship between automotive connectivity and the so-called “Internet of Things (IoT).”

  • Discover how “automotive within IoT” will have a dramatic impact on smart device integration, infotainment services, embedded solutions, big data, interoperability, monitoring and security for OEM’s, service providers, regulators and consumers.
  • Moderated panels will discuss the wider adoption of intelligent automotive systems and key enablers for creating massive business development opportunities by collecting, managing, sharing and monetizing the connected vehicle.
  • With more than 279 million connected vehicles projected to be on the roads by 2021, key industry stakeholders are exploring ways to better collaborate, set standards and define the future of automotive within the IoT. The OPEN Automotive ‘14 conference brings many of those key contributors and innovators together for a full day of education and knowledge transfer.
