Who we are
Livio, a wholly owned subsidiary of Ford Motor Company, has been operating out of Metro Detroit since 2008.

SmartDeviceLink open source project can be found at genivi.org or github.com/smartdevicelink.
What we make
SmartDeviceLink (SDL) is a standard set of protocols and messages that connect applications on a smartphone to a vehicle head unit. This messaging enables a consumer to interact with their application using common in-vehicle interfaces such as a touch screen display, embedded voice recognition, steering wheel controls and various vehicle knobs and buttons. There are three main components that make up the SDL ecosystem.
The Core component is the software which Vehicle Manufacturers (OEMs) implement in their vehicle head units. Integrating this component into their head unit and HMI based on a set of guidelines and templates enables access to various smartphone applications.The optional SDL Server can be used by Vehicle OEMs to update application policies and gather usage information for connected applications.
The iOS and Android libraries are implemented by app developers into their applications to enable command and control via the connected head unit.
The Super Helpful Application ID (SHAID) server manages Application IDs used by the SmartDeviceLink (SDL) components. This includes creation of new unique application IDs, anonymous distribution of the IDs to SDL partners, and the ability to revoke an existing ID. The SHAID server can also notify subscribing SDL Servers when an ID is revoked, allowing the SDL Server to take appropriate action.
Why work at Livio? A small, start up culture with all the benefits of being a wholly owned subsidiary of Ford Motor Co. Flexible hours, health, dental, vision, Ford Retirement Plan and 401K.
