JamaicaCAR is an automotive application framework. It is based on JamaicaVM and Java technology, and adds realtime and reliability to the flexibility and extendibility of mobile apps. JamaicaCAR supports 2D and 3D applications. Extensive libraries provide access to the board net, internet, GPS information and many other sources. Apps can communicate directly and secure.
The JamaicaVM security model is based on Java's security managers and is extended by signable apps, privileges, and access control mechanisms. The system is controlled by the JamaicaCAR manager, which can pause, stop, or slow down running apps any time.
OEMs can ensure their look & feel for all apps. Suppliers gain access to the centre console and easily integrate their after market products, if this is granted by the OEM. For Car owners the connection of GPS information and internet access opens a host of new possibilities for local services such as finding the nearest available parking place or hotel room, or even communication between vehicles for fleet management.
JamaicaCAR is an application framework based on the JamaicaVM realtime runtime and Java 8 Compact2 Profile for significantly reduced memory use.
The platform supports both on and off board communication through a set of secure library interfaces such as for GPS, Internet, and interapplication messaging.
Concurrent Application Support
Multiple applications can run simultaneously under the control of the JamaicaCAR application manager, giving the user full control.
Both 2D and 3D graphics support using the Light Weight User Interface Toolkit and Open GL ES with hardware acceleration provides ease of development and maximum performance.
Application security management provides fine grain access control to platform services and limits on resource use by applications.
JamaicaCAR provides hard realtime response for a fluid user interface with deterministic garbage collection.
The component based design and platform neutrality of JamaicaCAR enables OEMs to deploy applications on any CPU and OS with any custom look and feel for maximizing return on investment while strengthening product identification.
JamaicaCAR's extensibility through downloadable applications ensures better integration of optional and aftermarket components.
The connection of GPS information and internet access opens a host of new possibilities for local services such as finding the nearest available parking place or hotel room, or even communication between vehicles for fleet management.
