CES 2020

AGL Member Demos

The AGL booth at CES 2020 featured the new 2020 Toyota RAV4, the new 2020 Mazda CX-30, and 19 AGL members showing infotainment, instrument cluster, autonomous driving, security, connectivity, and other applications running on the AGL open source software platform. Click on the boxes below to read descriptions of each member demo.

Automotive Grade Linux

Infotainment & Instrument Cluster Demos

Infotainment and Instrument Cluster applications using container technology to run on a single microprocessor core. The speedometer and tachometer, along with a center display, show information from the infotainment system such as map data and media player information. The Infotainment and Instrument Cluster are running on different boards with a CAN bus connection between them to share commands from a Suzuki steering wheel as well as other vehicle data such as speed.

Infotainment demo showing media player, tuner, navigation, web browser, Bluetooth, WiFi, HVAC control, and audio mixer applications running the latest AGL code. Adjust the HVAC or control multimedia via voice recognition with Amazon Alexa. A production steering wheel from Suzuki is incorporated into the demo.


HTML5 apps on the AGL platform

Pure HTML based UI and applications running on the different AGL reference hardware boards.


Open Source Compliance for Automotive

The OpenChain Project will demonstrate how open source tooling can help automate open source compliance in the automotive industry. The demonstration will be based on real world experiences from companies in key automotive manufacturing markets such as Japan.


IVI/Cluster Storage Health Widget

A widget that Tier-1s, OEMs, or even end users can use to check the “health” of the flash memory storage. The demo will simultaneously demonstrate virtualization through a Xen hypervisor to run AGL and Android IVIs where the widget can be displayed.


New Reference Hardware on the 2020 Mazda CX-30

Showcasing interchangeable architecture hardware with 2 DIN form factor designed by the AGL Reference Hardware System Architecture Export Group. AGL demonstration running on the new reference hardware in 2020 Mazda CX-30.


Next Gen Cockpit System

Next Gen Cockpit System demonstrated by DENSO and DENSO TEN.


Ship cockpit simulation using the AGL platform with HTML5 and Android apps running inside secured containers with a cybersecurity attack scenario.

LG Electronics

HTML5 UI/UX for Automotive Infotainment with Autonomous Driving Simulation

Flexible and user-customizable HTML5 UI/UX for automotive infotainment using LG’s Web App Manager and Enact framework running on AGL, along with the open source LGSVL Simulator which supports the development and testing of autonomous driving software (e.g. Autoware, Apollo, or the AGL Unified Autonomous Driving Platform).

SafeRide Technologies


Multi-layer cybersecurity software solution for connected and autonomous vehicles that combines deterministic and zero false-positive protection for software network and connectivity – including IDPS, Firewall and Access Control – with a Machine Learning and Deep Learning profiling and anomaly detection technology for future-proof security.


Multimedia on the 2020 Toyota RAV4

2020 RAV4 with the latest infotainment system based on AGL.


Cloud-based Vehicle Service Delivery Platform and Cockpit ECU Reference Solution

Demonstrate container based secure microservice deployment that supports easy to develop solution to realize Time to Market. Cockpit ECU will kickstart your development with this all new reference solution from Renesas.


Voice Agent Service

Realization of a hybrid voice agent service based on AGL. User can receive various feedback from an agent service just by talking to it.


Automotive Virtual Platform based on certified Hypervisor

Hypervisor-based cockpit solution enabling a virtual platform which integrates a large number of different functions, from entertainment and infotainment applications to Telematics Control Units (TCU) to Driver Information Systems. The solution integrates AGL and the hypervisor is the first Type 1 hypervisor compliant to ISO 26262:2018 ASIL-B.

VNC Automotive

Connectivity that Moves

Demonstration of seamless connectivity between IVI and the mobile devices used within the car, and how a modular architecture can future-proof IVI systems by enabling them to be enhanced with additional applications and content provided by smartphones and add-on boxes. VNC Automotive will also have the first public unveiling of their new rear-seat entertainment solution. This uses the capabilities of AGL to aggregate multimedia content from multiple sources and stream them to the screens in the back of the car, as well as passengers’ tablets and headphones.


AGL Instrument Cluster Demo

Highlights how the AGL platform can be optimized for Instrument Cluster applications and for use in lower performance processors and low-cost vehicles that do not require an entire infotainment software stack.


AGL VR Cockpit: Improved Development Kit

Advanced HMI Development tools for AGL using Reference Hardware and HMD (Head Mounted Display). The Reference Hardware enables engineers to start IVI software development without production hardware, reducing software development lead time. The HMD, produced by Panasonic, features a wide view angle which is effective for evaluating cockpit HMI.

Aisin AW

AGL Low-Spec Cockpit

Aisin AW demonstration shows another container integration based on a new draft version of AGL platform architecture

Microchip Technology

INICnet™ Technology – Microphone Network & eCall

Showcasing AGL in conjunction with a safety critical application. Based on INICnet™ technology, it features an emergency response system (eCall) with a Simplex Daisy chain topology and the network diagnosis feature.


Secure Automotive Gateway

Secure Automotive Gateway demo with significant automotive security features such as Fast and Secure Boot, an intrusion detection system (IDS), a simulated software over the air (OTA) process, firewall and a secure application loader. All of which is supported by a remote tablet, an infotainment screen and a cluster screen running on the latest AGL UCB release (Happy Halibut).
