GENIVI Alliance Announces New Open Source Vehicle Simulator Project

Project to Test New User Interface for GENIVI Development Platform (GDP) Under Simulated Driver Conditions

SAN RAMON, California, Sept. 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The GENIVI Alliance, a non-profit alliance focused on developing an open in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) and connectivity software platform for the transportation industry, today announced the GENIVI Vehicle Simulator (GVS) open source project has launched, with both developer and end-user code available immediately.

The GVS project [] and initial source code, developed by Elements Design Group, San Francisco and the Jaguar Land Rover Open Software Technology Center in Portland, Ore., provide an open source, extensible driving simulator that assists adopters to safely develop and test the user interface of an IVI system under simulated driving conditions.

"While there are multiple potential uses for the application, we believe the GVS is the most comprehensive open source vehicle simulator available today," said Steve Crumb, executive director, GENIVI Alliance. "Its first use is to test our new GENIVI Development Platform user interface in a virtually simulated environment, to help us identify and execute necessary design changes quickly and efficiently."

Open to all individuals wishing to collaborate, contribute, or just use the software, the GVS provides a realistic driving experience with a number of unique features including:

-- Obstacles - Obstacles may be triggered by the administrator while
driving. If the driver hits an obstacle in the virtually simulated
environment, the event is logged as an infraction that can be reviewed
after the driving session.
-- Infraction Logging - A number of infractions can be logged including
running stop signs, running red lights, vehicles driving over double
yellow lines on a single highway and collisions with terrain, other
vehicles, obstacles, etc.
-- Infraction Review - At the end of a driving session, the administrator
and driver can review infractions from the most recent session, with
screenshots of the infraction along with pertinent vehicle data
displayed and saved.
