Automotive Grade Linux (AGL) is a collaborative open source project that is bringing together automakers, suppliers and technology companies to build a Linux-based, open software platform for automotive applications that can serve as the de facto industry standard. Adopting a shared platform across the industry reduces fragmentation and allows automakers and suppliers to reuse the same code base, leading to rapid innovation and faster time-to-market for new products.
As a “code first” organization, AGL’s goals are to:
- Build a single platform for the entire industry
- Develop 70-80% of the starting point for a production project
- Reduce fragmentation by combining the best of open source
- Develop an ecosystem of developers, suppliers, expertise all using a single platform
Although initially focused on infotainment, AGL is the only organization planning to address all software in the vehicle: infotainment, instrument cluster, heads-up-display (HUD), telematics/ connected car, advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), functional safety and autonomous driving.
Automotive Grade Linux is a Project at The Linux Foundation.
