MeeGo IVI's work has always been focused on the middleware on top of the
Linux stack provided by MeeGo Core to support the functionality required for
vehicle applications such as connectivity to vehicle networks (CAN, MOST,
etc), audio management, etc. The user experience has been provided as an
example and is expected to be replaced for a customized one providing
In that sense all the work that has been done for IVI in conjunction with
MeeGo still applies to Tizen. As the matter of fact, for MeeGo 1.3 the team
has greatly improved MeeGo IVI so that it can run on a wider variety of
hardware and to make it simpler to remove the demo UX and replace it with
something more functional.
HTML5 is mainly an abstraction layer for application development. The native
application approach chosen for MeeGo puts pretty strong constraints on how
APIs can evolve after products have been shipped. An API defines a contract
between the application and the underlying system and if one changes without
the other then there is trouble ahead. An abstraction layer such as HTML5
provides the necessary flexibility for evolution without breaking things. It
also provides an abstraction from the underlying hardware and its
architecture. The idea is obviously not new and if you remember the early
days of Java this was exactly what Java was intended to do: provide an
abstraction layer for embedded software applications.
