JamaicaCAR is an automotive application framework. It is based on JamaicaVM and Java technology, and adds realtime and reliability to the flexibility and extendibility of mobile apps. JamaicaCAR supports 2D and 3D applications. Extensive libraries provide access to the board net, internet, GPS information and many other sources. Apps can communicate directly and secure.
The JamaicaVM security model is based on Java's security managers and is extended by signable apps, privileges, and access control mechanisms. The system is controlled by the JamaicaCAR manager, which can pause, stop, or slow down running apps any time.
OEMs can ensure their look & feel for all apps. Suppliers gain access to the centre console and easily integrate their after market products, if this is granted by the OEM. For Car owners the connection of GPS information and internet access opens a host of new possibilities for local services such as finding the nearest available parking place or hotel room, or even communication between vehicles for fleet management.
