In addition to published specifications and code, and reference architecture information, COVESA presents a family of technology and security-related tech-briefs and whitepapers.

Some of these are from GENIVI times, as evident by the logo and text.
Many documents have also been published on the COVESA home page

Common Vehicle Interface Initiative
and Cloud and Connected Services Category

Technology Briefs

(green star) Curve Logging algorithm

  • This document describes Geotab's Curve Logging algorithm, which can combine high accuracy with large reduction in the amount of transferred data between vehicle and cloud.
  • Curve Logging Tech Brief

(green star) Vehicle Data Models - Overview and Gap Analysis

Vehicle Domain Interaction Category

Graphic Sharing & Distributed HMI

White papers

(green star) Graphics Sharing Whitepaper

Technology Briefs

(green star) 
Sharing a physical display across multiple operating systems

  • This brief describes the Display Sharing category which provides support in hardware for compositing the display output from multiple operating systems into a single final display buffer. Using this, a combined HMI can be created from independently operating systems without any additional interaction

(green star) Digital Cockpit HMI Distribution Using Shared State, Independent Rendering

Published with support from Harman

(green star) Interactive Cockpit HMI using Surface Sharing

Published with support from ADIT

(green star) Distributed Graphics Control Through API Remoting

Published with support from BMW

Generic Communication Protocols Evaluation

(green star) Whitepaper and Project report:  Generic Protocols

  • This white paper reports the outcome of the GPRO work on surveying protocol usage in the automotive industry and a whitepaper-style introduction of key technologies such as Franca IDL, Franca Plus, CommonAPI, MQTT, CoAP, WAMP, D-Bus and HTTP/RESTful services, and the Franca to AUTOSAR ARA::COM investigation, among other things.
  • GENIVI_Generic_Protocols_Evaluation_Results_Whitepaper_20190612.pdf

(green star) Tech Brief: Franca / ARA::COM Interoperability

  • This brief describes an approach and technologies essential to building a demonstrator for the interoperability of GENIVI IVI (and LInux) based IVI systems and Adaptive AUTOSAR systems.

  • GENIVI Franca-ARA-COM-tech-brief-20181219.pdf
