Tizen and Ford's SmartDeviceLink

A session at SmartDevCon 2013

  • Jacek Serafinski
  • Piotr Szczechowiak

During recent years car manufacturers identified added value for their business models in leveraging mobile connectivity and computation. The idea of smartphone as a main component of the car emerged and various auto makers including Ford and GM opened their environment by providing API not only for usual partners, but also for 3rd party developers willing to provide their own applications for in-car use. The idea of standardized On-board unit drove Samsung, Intel and several supporting entities to build Tizen, an open mobile platform for which In-vehicle infotainment system is one of target use cases.

In this presentation I would like to introduce Tizen SDK and Ford's SmartDeviceLink by showing the production process of HTML5 based application for in-car use which takes advantage of target on-board screen, buttons and server in the backend.
The presentation will consist of three parts:

  • automotive trends and technology survey
  • Introduction of Tizen SDK and SmartDeviceLink
  • Application development for Tizen IVI (complete process for sample application)
