"Given the growing amount of software required in modern vehicles, the industry needs a robust and simple-to-use tool for improving IVI and connected vehicle software that engages a broader base of developers," said GENIVI Executive Director Steve Crumb. "The Challenge Grant Program provides funding for features that better position the GENIVI Development Platform as that tool and expands the active participation of developers contributing innovative and quality code that makes the platform even better."
More information on the GENIVI Challenge Grant program can be found on the GENIVI Wiki including a registration form to express interest in participation in the program. GENIVI expects contributions for some of the targeted features by its All Member Meeting during the week of October 17, 2016.
