An (automotive) developer's perspective on HTML5

HTML5 may represent the future of automotive infotainment, but it won't exist in isolation. HTML5 apps will, for the foreseeable future, need to communicate with native apps, such as navigation programs written in OpenGL. Some will even need to communicate with lower-level services, such as vehicle bus drivers. The easier these communications can be implemented, the faster automakers can adopt HTML5.

Which brings me to a new installment in the QNX video series on HTML5. In this video, Sheridan Ethier, who manages the company's automotive development team, discusses integration between HTML5 and native apps. He also explains how HTML5 can simplify development efforts and deliver the performance needed for graphically rich infotainment systems.
