Car tech has suddenly increased and exploding with lots of products and solutions; Apple and Google are getting in on a game that Microsoft was dominating for quite sometimes: ‘infotainment systems’. Now, there is another player on the blocks – Automotive Grade Linux (AGL). AGL is the industry’s first fully customizable automotive platform and it provides features and apps suitable for deployment in cars.
Open source seems to be popping up everywhere. The collaborative nature of the license makes it a perfect underpinning source to develop a system, platform, application, etc. These days, open source has opened a variety of applications and is not confined to a laptop or a mobile device but it wants to travel and explore. A brand new distribution of Linux, Automotive Grade Linux (AGL), is coming to fruition that targets the automotive industry.
