Automotive Grade Linux Welcomes Six New Members

By Ken Briodagh April 27, 2017

Automotive Grade Linux (AGL), a collaborative open source project for developing a Linux-based, open platform for the connected car, has announced that ARCCORE, BayLibre, IoT.bzh, Nexius, SELTECH and Voicebox have joined AGL and The Linux Foundation to promote and develop connected and automated vehicle technology.

“AGL is gaining significant traction across the automotive industry, the ecosystem is really taking off across diverse software disciplines,” said Dan Cauchy, Executive Director, Automotive Grade Linux. “We look forward to working with these new members to enhance AGL capabilities including voice recognition, security and virtualization.”

AGL is the Diamond Sponsor for Automotive Linux Summit May 31-June 2 in Tokyo, Japan. The Automotive Linux Summit gathers together the most innovative minds from automotive expertise and open-source excellence to drive the future software solutions in the automotive arena.

“IoT.bzh is a strong supporter of open source, and it is at the core of our business,” said Fulup Le Foll, CEO, IoT.bzh. “We are active code contributors to the AGL UCB, and we look forward to continuing to advance the platform as an official member.”

“ARCCORE's mission is to provide cutting-edge products and solution-oriented services to automotive companies which enable autonomous drive, connected vehicles and next-generation infotainment applications,” said Michael Svenstam, CEO, ARCCORE. “We have always been supportive of an open source approach in embedded systems development, and collaborating with Automotive Grade Linux and The Linux Foundation will enable us to better serve our customers working on those platforms.”

“An open and standardized software platform is a critical element for the success of the connected car. Joining Automotive Grade Linux is the next step for BayLibre as we develop embedded system software in support of semiconductor manufacturers, solutions providers, Tier 1 suppliers, and automotive manufacturers,” said Michael Turquette, CEO, BayLibre. “We share a similar 'code first' approach with AGL, and we look forward to applying our knowledge of SoCs, Yocto integration and our strong reputation within the Linux kernel and open source software communities to help drive the platform forward.”
