I'll let one of the guys working on this give an implementation status.

We are using our wrt-plugins-ivi project to prove out web api's that we
need for IVI.  In some cases the api's are ivi specific, like the
vehicle info api, and in other cases the api's are of use by other

Once an api has been proven to work well with acceptable overhead then
we will make the case for the api to either be added to the shared tizen
device api plugin, platform/framework/web/wrt-plugins-ivi, or if we have
good traction with the W3C on the specific API, to just directly
implement the API in the engine follow the appropriate W3C standard.

Today we have API's supporting:
* access the vehicle information bus via our automotive-message-broker
* access to DLNA via dleyna
* access to speech-to-text and text-to-speech via Winthrope

... and each of these are in different stages of development with new
features landing over the rest of the year.
