08:30 - 09:00 - Check-in and Breakfast
09:00 - 10:00 - Toyota Window Manager API - Aurelian

  • Aurelian and Joel showed a presentation with the Toyota/Mentor proposed architecture and schedule
  • SPEC-765 was created to track this effort.
  • Steve L - Security issues. Does Window Manager verify that surface changes are requested by the correct AppIO? How are AppIDs assigned so they cannot be spoofed?
  • Fulup - SMACK level checking and verification should be performed by the Window Manager
  • As proposed, Window Manager runs as its own process, does that introduce unacceptable latencies?
  • The architecture is for a single display run by an single Window Manager. It was suggested that the APIs and Window Manager design should account for multiple displays and Window Manager instances.
  • There was a schedule for Sound Manager changes included in the slides. Mentor and Toyota need to provide additional information about this activity. There are on-going Sound Manager activities that may conflict with this effort. Mentor was unable to identify who would be working on this activity.

  • Decisions/plan
    • Use the application level interface proposed on slide 13 of Denso/ADIT presentation as the starting point for Sound Manager binder.
      • Convert to JSON and create binding (AudioKinetic offered to do this) Initial version of the API in August.
      • Need to have the ability to notify an app which PCM stream it is using
      • Need agreement whether we are using virtual channels in ALSA or not.
      • Need to adapt Qt Multimedia and other apps to use the new sound manager binding
      • ADIT and will work on making the existing Controller Plug-In available as an AGL Binding. This would allow the policies to be controlled from AGL or as a GENIVI plug-in.
      • Need to get more detail from Toyota and Mentor on their plans for Sound Manager.
