Automotive Grade Linux (AGL), a collaborative cross-industry effort developing an open platform for the connected car, announced that six new members have joined the project including Kinetica, Neusoft, NXM Technologies, NYU Tandon School of Engineering, Spireon Inc. and Veniam. With the addition of these companies and organisations, the project is 130 members strong.
“We are delighted to see six new members deepen their investment in automotive open source,” said Dan Cauchy, Executive Director of Automotive Grade Linux, The Linux Foundation. “As we continue to advance our platform through the release of AGL UCB 6.0, expanding our global community is crucial. We look forward to further leveraging their expertise in embedded automotive technologies as we advance the connected car ecosystem.”
“With HERE OTA Connect, automakers and device manufacturers have a complete solution for fast, secure updates to all parts of the vehicle. Joining AGL as a Bronze member shows the commitment of HERE to open source and to the agl-sota subsystem,” said Arthur Taylor, Director of Automotive OTA Research and Development at HERE Technologies. “Automakers, device manufacturers, tinkerers, and anyone else developing on AGL will continue to benefit from easy build system integration and out-of-the-box OTA updates. We also look forward to making it easier than ever to build smart location-based services in AGL using the HERE Open Location Platform.”
“Kinetica is proud to join the Automotive Grade Linux community,” said Paul Appleby, Kinetica CEO. “The auto industry is being completely reinvented in the age of extreme data and AI. Joining AGL gives us an opportunity to collaborate with industry leaders to build in-vehicle accelerated analytics solutions that can translate extreme data into instant insight.”
“The NYU Tandon School of Engineering is proud to join the Automotive Grade Linux community, whose members share the deeply held belief of our Uptane researchers that the free and open exchange of knowledge will strengthen our transportation system and protect all drivers and their passengers. Our school and the University-wide Center for Cybersecurity look forward to productive collaborations that will benefit our mobile society,” Katepalli R. Sreenivasan, New York University Tandon School of Engineering Dean.
