In just a few years, connected cars will become the predominant form of automotive transportation, and connected vehicle data shows great promise as a foundation for mobility services that bring value to drivers, communities, service providers and automotive manufacturers.

GENIVI is actively investigating essential standards and solutions to enable a data-driven, connected vehicle software architecture as an important step towards achieving the seamless coupling of the in-vehicle and back-end architectures, and delivering an end-to-end vehicle computing platform.

Kevin Valdek, CTO, High-Mobility and Gunnar Andersson, GENIVI Development Lead, present a proposed end-to-end vehicle-to-cloud communication framework, which, according to some OEM sources is what the automotive industry needs. They discuss the rationale behind the design choices and outline a plan to implement a proof-of-concept demonstrator in order to validate the reference architecture.

Key topics and takeaways:

  • approaches to achieving industry-shared data models;
  • details of an end-to-end vehicle-to-cloud communication framework and the technology components incorporated in the framework; and
  • connections to in-car technologies such as AUTOSAR-defined SOME/IP and several others
