Car hacking continues to be a concern and high profile software bugs are on the rise and in the news at an alarming frequency. The traditional way of developing automotive software is not working. OEMs are starting to adopt an open source approach to change the way software is built for cars. Automotive Grade Linux (AGL) is a Linux Foundation Collaboration Project that is bringing together OEMs and suppliers to build a shared platform from the ground-up for in-vehicle infotainment.
Executive Director of Automotive, Dan Cauchy will provide an update on the latest AGL activities and discuss how AGL and GENIVI have been collaborating in various areas of open source automotive software, and what lies ahead in the future. He will also discuss how developing a common platform and building an ecosystem and supply chain that all use the same code base will transform the traditional automotive supply chain model, reduce fragmentation, improve time-to-market and enable companies to focus more on rapid innovation and new features.
