GAYDON, England, Sept. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Livio today revealed a demonstration of Livio Connected mobile phone applications operating on an Intel® Atom processor-based platform running Tizen IVI at the Automotive Linux Summit, a global event hosted by the Linux Foundation.

Tizen provides a powerful environment for application developers, based on HTML5. Designed for automotive OEMs, Tizen IVI allows developers to use HTML5 and related web technologies to write applications that run across multiple car stereos.

Livio Connect is a technology that connects apps to cars easily and quickly for software and hardware developers.  Livio Connect is a 2012 Frost & Sullivan New Product Innovation Award recipient with over 15 Livio Connected partners including TuneIn, TargetSpot and CSR.

"Getting Tizen IVI Livio Connected is our first example of how we're working with standards for connecting apps to cars. Drivers bring their smartphones into cars and we're providing a scalable and safe integration solution," said Livio founder and CEO Jake Sigal. "We see Tizen IVI running on the Intel processors as a scalable platform for any car stereo system."

"Because Tizen IVI is already GENIVI compliant, this combination with Livio creates an opportunity for GENIVI car OEM's to quickly and safely get apps into the dashboard," said GENIVI Director of Marketing and Treasurer, Joel Hoffmann

Demonstrations of Livio Connect are being held in Intel's booth in the GENIVI Pavilion at the 2012 Automotive Linux Summit.
