AGL would like to redesign the look and feel of the IVI Demo for CES 2024 and beyond. 


Scope:

  1. Use Figma to create a new design that includes the AGL Homescreen, HVAC, Dashboard, Settings, Audio mixer, Radio, and Media Player apps in a portrait mode orientation.
    1. Stretch goal would be to included designs for the telephone, contacts, and navigation apps.
    2. Stretch goal would be to include an IC design that matches the IVI.
    3. Stretch goal is make the apps available in both landscape and portrait. 
  2. From the Figma design create Flutter apps that can be connected to the AGL back end.
  3. Connect the Homescreen, HVAC, dashboard, radio, and audio mixer Flutter apps to AGL services via gRPC and show these at CES. 
    1. Stretch goal one is include other apps for CES, but generally the backend will not be ready for the Settings, Navigation, Media player in time for CES.
  4. Stretch goal would be include a re-usable open source workflow to take Figma designs to AGL deployment and have that well documented.

  1. Jan-Simon Moeller please review and update the steering wheel buttons that are available. We should also make a binary available for Suchinton's simulator.
