CY Calendar Year
CRQ Change request
SDL SmartDeviceLink
ATF Automated Test Framework
GitHub Source code revision system with released version of OpenSDL


App Launch (iOS):

Integration of functionality already implemented in F-S SDL. Within the scope of the CRQ integration, SDL team removeд iAP2 transport implementation and Multiplexing functionality available in F-S SDL.

New implementation of requested functionality:

  • Navigation interface: SDL behavior in case HMI does not respond to IsReady_request or respond with "available" = false
  • TTS interface: SDL behavior in case HMI does not respond to IsReady_request or respond with "available" = false
  • UI interface: SDL behavior in case HMI does not respond to IsReady_request or respond with "available" = false
  • VR interface: SDL behavior in case HMI does not respond to IsReady_request or respond with "available" = false
  • VehicleInfo interface: SDL behavior in case HMI does not respond to IsReady_request or respond with "available" = false

2 About This Release

Implemented functionality for remote launching the applications from the supported Launch function devices.
Note: It is a business logic without supported device implementation.
For further details, please refer IAP, AOA, SDL Core SAD or your transport API documentation.

Changed SDL behavior in case HMI does not respond to IsReady_request or respond with "available" = false for following interfaces: VR, UI, TTS, Navigation and VehicleInfo interfaces.

Short description of new behavior (INTERFACE is generic term used to described any of VR, UI, TTS, Navigation and VehicleInfo interfaces):

  1. HMI respond INTERFACE.IsReady (false) -> SDL must return 'UNSUPPORTED_RESOURCE, success:false' to all single INTERFACE-related RPC
  2. HMI respond INTERFACE.IsReady (false) and app sends RPC that must be splitted -> SDL must NOT transfer INTERFACE portion of splitted RPC to HMI
  3. HMI does NOT respond to INTERFACE.IsReady_request -> SDL must transfer received RPC to HMI even to non-responded INTERFACE module
