AIX, that brings back memories from the 80s, the distribution came in a long box full of five inch floppies and cases of books.

Most automotive ECUs use an operating system that is a variation of OSEK, an OS specification tailored to automotive needs. OSEK is all-inclusive so a developer will only use the features needed usually from a provider like Vector or Windriver (I use Vector in my programs). The biggest difference between automotive OS's and more general purpose OSs you find on appliances including your PCs is pre-emption, we do not use pre-emptive operating systems. Scheduling is done using old style round-robin scheduling.

Infotainment systems are sort of a hybrid, spanning appliances and automotive. I don't think automotive engineering knows how to deal with it no more than appliance designers know how to deal with automotive. Looking at past attempts to bring infotainment to vehicles has not been successful albeit they are getting closer.

I agree, why Dodge didnt consider just slapping a nexus 7 style tablet into the dash is beyond me. even the 2012 model tegra 3 would have been substantially more powerful than the chipset in our 8.4an. I think what scares them is the stability, while android is pretty damn stable, it does crash...and it usually hot reboots the whole system, which would not be good in a vehicle, plus youd have to pretty much pave the way to integrate it with all the systems the radio now controls. But given enough development and only focusing on one set of hardware....one could make a pretty solid system based on android. watch out for firefoxOS and Ubuntu phone

They do all have their place in our world and all have their strengths and weakness as well.

Thank you to both of you. I got my start on the technical side but in the last couple of years I've moved to Project Management. So, my job is to explain to the end user why we can't build that custom system in two weeks and then come back and explain to the engineers why they don't have two years.

We have one AIX box here. and since I'm the only person with Unix experience it's easier for me to support then to hand it over to someone else. It's just different enough from everything else to frustrate me. But the product is more of an appliance then anything. It doesn't require too much baby sitting.
