GM Dev Client enables approved app developers to test infotainment applications in a real GM vehicle once a proof-of-concept has been created using GM’s next-generation infotainment software development kit (NGI SDK).
The NGI SDK mimics real vehicle data and enables developers outside of GM to build apps without making frequent trips to Detroit, Michigan, to conduct testing on infotainment modules.
By the end of 2017, the NGI SDK will offer a template framework for developers such as a media player layout or a point of interest layout.
“By introducing GM Dev Client, we’re giving developers the missing link they need to finalize their applications. GM Dev Client will help us and external developers make sure the best in-vehicle apps are ultimately made available in GM vehicles, ensuring the best customer experience for drivers,” said John McFarland, director of global digital experience.
