Senior Software Engineer, General Motors

Oct 2015 – present
General Motors Canada, Markham, ON
Projects: Android-based vehicle infotainment system
– Responsible for software development in Android framework for phone projection, connectivity, and network management features, following Agile/Scrum process (Git, Gerrit).
Programming languages: Java, C++.

  • Fast prototyped Wireless Android Auto (WAA) feature before 3rd party dependency was ready. Saved 3 weeks’ time in project schedule.
  • Designed and implemented Wireless Projection Service in Android framework to support WAA feature: sharing WiFi hotspot info to phone via Bluetooth RFCOMM connection, and starting Android Auto session in WiFi connection following Google spec.
  • Fast learned Apple spec and Bonjour service, and successfully implemented Apple Wireless CarPlay (WCP) prototype using C++ and JNI before 3rd party library was ready. Saved 2 weeks’ time in project schedule.
  • Extended Wireless Projection Service to implement WCP feature: Establishing iAP2 channel over Bluetooth and sharing WiFi hotspot info to iPhone, discovering and resolving Bonjour services, and starting CarPlay session in WiFi using Cinemo’s library.
  • Refactored Device Connection Management Service: managing all connected devices in Android including Bluetooth devices and phone projections. Implemented using Message Queue, AIDL, and State Machine. Significantly improved stability and maintainability.
  • Worked with software architect to design vehicle network system. Implemented Net Filter Service to manage network firewall rules and data traffic priorities. And maintained Android connectivity system (Connectivity Service, Network Management Service, netd).
