The AASIG AUDIO HAL project team will present a status report of the proof-of-concept implementation and explain the design choices made.
Audio management is one important aspect and constraint for the utilization of Android Automotive for the IVI unit. During Q1, 2020, the AASIG AUDIO HAL project team has finalized the list and priorities of audio management related topics. The team has decided to investigate the software architectural design for audio multi-zone management. The following design options are investigated, (a) all audio management is inside Android Automotive, and AA manages all sinks & sources and (b) all audio management is outside Android Automotive. The team is implementing proofs-of-concept to experiment with the design options.
The following next steps will be then comprehensively debated:
1. Definition of proof-of-concept roadmap, versioning of proof-of-concept content w.r.t. roadmap milestones
early assessment of implementation TRL (Technical Readiness Level)
2. Discussion on when and how to reaching out Google
3. Identification of other proof-of-concepts implementation based on the list of prioritized topics for audio management
