BEAVERTON, OR & SAN RAMON, CA--October 31, 2012: AVnu Alliance and the GENIVI Alliance have announced a liaison agreement to align software requirements for automotive Ethernet IVI (In-Vehicle Infotainment) and related applications. This initiative defines areas of mutual interest in IVI specifications and furthers both organizations' effort to support compliance and interoperability through open-source technology.
