Sat. Nov. 11 2017

SAN FRANCISCO, October 18, 2017 – Automotive Grade Linux (AGL), a collaborative cross-industry effort developing an open platform for the connected car, is announcing that five new members have joined the project including Adobe, Desay SV Automotive, FIBERDYNE SYSTEMS, Nuance and Trend Micro.


“The AGL ecosystem is rapidly growing, and we are very excited to expand into new areas like voice recognition and digital marketing, which will enable automakers to easily integrate new consumer features and services into their AGL-based infotainment systems,” said Dan Cauchy, Executive Director of Automotive Grade Linux at The Linux Foundation. “We look forward to working with all of our new members as we continue to evolve the AGL Unified Code Base (UCB) and expand into new functions like telematics, instrument cluster and head-up-display.”


The AGL community is coming together for their bi-annual All Member Meeting on October 18-19 in Dresden, Germany. The All Member Meeting allows the AGL community to learn about the latest developments, share best practices and collaborate to drive rapid innovation across the industry.


 “As a leading automotive electronic solution provider for vehicle manufacturers, Desay SV Automotive is proud to be a member of the Automotive Grade Linux community,” said Mr. Duan Yongzheng, senior vice president of Desay SV Automotive, “in response to the increasing demand for feature rich, smart and connected In-Vehicle Systems, we believe collaborating with AGL is the best way to bridge the stability required by the automotive industry with the rapid progress of the open source world.”


About Automotive Grade Linux (AGL)

Automotive Grade Linux is a collaborative open source project that is bringing together automakers, suppliers and technology companies to accelerate the development and adoption of a fully open software stack for the connected car. With Linux at its core, AGL is developing an open platform from the ground up that can serve as the de facto industry standard to enable rapid development of new features and technologies. Although initially focused on In-Vehicle-Infotainment (IVI), AGL is the only organization planning to address all software in the vehicle, including instrument cluster, head-up display, telematics, advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and autonomous driving. The AGL platform is available to all, and anyone can participate in its development.


Automotive Grade Linux is a hosted at The Linux Foundation. Linux Foundation Projects are independently funded software projects that harness the power of collaborative development to fuel innovation across industries and ecosystems.
