The Linux Foundation has announced that the MeeGo software platform has been chosen by the Genivi alliance for the next In-vehicle infotainment system. Intel and Nokia are the big collaborators on MeeGo.

Genivi includes BMW Group, Delphi, GM, Intel, Magneti-Marelli, PSA, Visteon and Wind River. The software will be used on systems that have all manner of functionality ranging from entertainment to GPS and more.

“We are pleased to see GENIVI choose MeeGo to power their software platform,” said Jim Zemlin, executive director at The Linux Foundation. “MeeGo has been built from the ground up for these types of applications. Because MeeGo is a truly open platform, the work GENIVI will do to extend the platform can benefit the project and all who use it. For developers, this is a great opportunity to harness the power of the MeeGo APIs to target a variety of devices and architectures and extend their work on handset applications toward vehicles.”
