This report details field-tests of multiple automotive Linux projects, including Tizen IVI, AGL, and GENIVI. In 2014, the speaker built and installed a Linux-based aftermarket IVI system in his own car, and presented the results at the 2014 Automotive Linux Summit. In the preceding year, he has expanded and updated the project: migrating to the Tizen 3.0 codebase, adding and testing several AGL and GENIVI applications, installing sensor arrays, 3G connectivity, and voice interaction, and connecting the system to the vehicle's factory switches and interfaces. This talk will present the outcomes of this new work, including key integration points that projects might not discover in laboratory tests, guidance for how automotive Linux projects can attract new testers and contributors, and lessons from the speaker's experience tweaking proof-of-concept applications for daily usage.
