The members of the Automotive Grade Linux Collaboration Project recognize that developing Open Source Software for the industry should not exist in a vacuum and desire collaboration with other like-minded communities. The AGL Charter specifically desires:
- Open collaboration to enable rapid innovation in the automotive industry by leveraging Linux and Open Source technologies
- Developing reference distributions for multiple automotive applications
- In-Vehicle Infotainment (IVI)
- Instrument Cluster
- Heads Up Display (HUD)
- Telematics Systems
- Other Control Systems
- Developing reference distributions on multiple hardware platforms
- Developing requirements specifications that lead to implementation and creation of AGL software projects
- Work with and contribute to upstream projects
- Educate the industry in open source collaboration and best practices
The AGL Project Members have created a reference distribution based on the Yocto Project. Known as the Unified Code Base (UCB) the AGL Reference Distribution pulls in the best parts of existing open source projects including Tizen IVI and GENIVI as well as components developed specifically for AGL.
From time to time it may be necessary to build applications, new components, or other software. In these cases AGL sponsors projects to create and maintain that software. AGL Projects are documented on our Project Wiki. Using our Wiki you can see what projects are on-going or propose a new project to be sponsored by the AGL Advisory Board.
