Tizen IVI is a Linux-based open source platform for automotive systems. For V2X-based driver-assistance applications, it is imperative that the underlying SW platform facilitates (1) access to V2X communication data, (2) efficient visualization of the data (e.g. traffic information), and (3) effective human-machine interface for seamless integration. Tizen IVI supports all means of communication like 3G/4G, WLAN, BT and also provides access to in-vehicle network data. We believe that Tizen IVI offers an affordable and rich platform for building advanced driver-assistance applications which utilize V2X-based information. We will discuss how Tizen IVI could support development of classes of V2X applications: (a) Cooperative traffic efficiency, and (b)Cooperative local services. The attendees from automotive industry would gain insights into such applications development on Tizen IVI.
