GM creates infotainment software development kit for engineers worldwide

LinkedIn +

General Motors has created an infotainment software development kit that enables engineers worldwide to test in-vehicle applications for GM’s infotainment systems.

With the NGI SDK, apps can be built to run directly on the vehicle using HTML5 and JavaScript. The kit includes the native application program interfaces (APIs) that allow developers access to nearly 400 vehicle data points, including instrument panel measurements; drive information; vehicle features; performance and maintenance; and lights and indicators.

The NGI SDK mimics real vehicle data, allowing developers outside GM to build apps without making frequent trips to Detroit, Michigan, to conduct testing on infotainment modules.
