About JamaicaCAR

JamaicaCAR is an automotive application framework, based on JamaicaVM technology, that adds realtime and reliability to the flexibility and extendability of JamaicaCAR automotive infotainment apps. JamaicaCAR supports graphics applications using the Codename One toolkit with pluggable look-and-feel, making it easy to use the same app on systems with different graphic designs. Exten­sive libraries provide ac­cess to the onboard networks, Internet, GPS information and many other sources. Apps can commu­nicate di­rectly and securely. The JamaicaVM security model is based on the Java Runtime Environment security managers and is extended by signable apps, privileges, and API access control mechanisms. The system is con­trolled by a JamaicaCAR manager, which con­trols the complete lifecycle of each app, from install to managed execution. JamaicaCAR provides the apps platform for Toyota's Entune and Fiat Chrysler Automo­biles UConnect.
