OpenCar announced its new InsideTrack portal at the Connected Car Expo. It is a collaboration and software development lifecycle (SDLC) management service for developers of infotainment apps.
InsideTrack provides automakers, tier 1 suppliers and content providers with a common platform to build automotive applications for new cars and to distribute & maintain applications via over-the-air updates over the life of each vehicle.
To remain relevant to customers’ connected needs automakers are migrating from their current fixed-function software development approach to an agile model that enables efficient development and high reusability.
OpenCar’s white label, standards-based application platform allows automakers and their tier 1 partners to distribute development and manage workflow while maintaining quality and control over the finished product.
Developers and automakers can now seamlessly merge and share applications, HMI themes and development tools, while controlling end-to-end development through program management capabilities that coordinate design, coding, QA, certification, pre-production, production, and maintenance phases.
OpenCar is an automotive software company engaged in the development of the world’s first Connected Car ecosystem for automakers. With deep experience in core web technologies and platform architecture design, OpenCar is partnering with automotive manufacturers, suppliers, and application developers to define a new set of standards that will radically improve the in-car experience for drivers. OpenCar is a member of the GENIVI alliance and the W3C
