Creating a Truly Open Automotive Distribution with Automotive Grade Linux - Walt Miner, Linux Foundation

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Entertainment in cars has rapidly evolved from a push button AM radio (1930) to 8-Track tapes (1964), CD players (1987), rear-seat entertainment systems with in-dash DVD players, and finally to today’s highly complex In-Vehicle Infotainment Systems with large touchscreens, navigation, smart phone connectivity, and much more available to the vehicle occupants. All of this complexity comes with an increased need to keep up with rapidly evolving consumer expectations. The Automotive Grade Linux (AGL) Workgroup was formed to create an open source distribution for use in automotive electronics that increases innovation and reduces time to market for new applications to be included in the vehicle. Walt Miner will provide an update on the latest AGL activities including the latest release and roadmap and show how and where developers can contribute to AGL.
