|February 1st, 2017
General Manager of Automotive, Linux Foundation
Topic: The Future of Open Source Automotive Software
Car hacking continues to be a concern, and high-profile software bugs
are on the rise and in the news with 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. Dan will detail
AGL's latest activities, how AGL and
collaborate in diverse areas of open-source auto software,
and what lies ahead. He'll cover how developing a common platform,
and building an ecosystem & supply chain with one code base,
will transform the traditional auto supply chain, reduce fragmentation,
improve time to market, and facilitate faster feature development.
