The current GENIVI work on data-driven connected vehicle software architecture is 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. This end-to-end platform leverages existing standards and solutions, but some gaps exist and overall interoperability is still far from achieved. We are convinced the GENIVI work will help the automotive industry take a big step toward the future when the in-vehicle software, E/E architecture and the back-end architecture will be moving closer together.
The Cloud & Connected Services (CCS) project team has undertaken during Q2, 2020 the implementation of an end-to-end vehicle-to-cloud communication framework proof-of-concept demonstrator. This framework incorporates technology components identified by various collaborative projects such as W3C Gen 2 protocol built on VSS2, GraphQL, ISO Extended Vehicle Neutral Server. It clarifies connections to in-car technologies such as AUTOSAR-defined SOME/IP and several others.
The CCS project team will present a status report of the CCS proof-of-concept implementation and explain the design choices made. The following topics will be also comprehensively debated:
- How to augment the vehicle data model, collaboration with the Sensoris project (www.sensoris.org
- Discussion on which APIs and components on the proposed architecture are candidates for standardization, the objective is to enable an open market for the software components of the communication framework (components are either in-vehicle or in the cloud)
- Discussion on how the CCS project will contrbute to the newly laucnhed work on a Common Vehicle Interface (CVII).
