JamaicaCAR, aicas' application platform layered on top of JamaicaVM, is already shipping on multiple auto manufacturers' model lines. It delivers flexibility, security, standardization and portability.

 

The automobile dashboard has evolved from a simple, radio and climate control system to a full-fledged, programmable touchscreen computer. The industry terms these as "head-units" or "infotainment systems" and has already identified a few killer apps such as navigation, Internet radio and Bluetooth pairing with smartphones.

Yet auto manufacturers, used to annually launching new models and features, struggle with managing the chaotic and fast-paced software innovation cycles. App development companies increasingly demand standardized software platforms from car producers, both within an automobile model and across model lines. At the same time, auto manufacturers face increasing pressure to constantly improve head-unit platform stability and minimize costs.

Our solution for the automotive head-unit

JamaicaCAR, an application platform layered on top of JamaicaVM, is already shipping on multiple auto manufacturer model lines. It delivers flexibility, security, standardization and portability to meet the requirements of the application vendors and the auto manufacturers. Some of its features:

  • Being portable, CPU and Operating System independent, this application framework enables true “write-once, run-anywhere” app development
  • Signature security to prevent rogue apps
  • API-granular access control to prevent accidental or malicious use of critical APIs
  • Managed application lifecycle: our Appstore supports online app distribution, allowing secure remote control of download /install /start /pause /stop /deinstall activities
