46 perusahaan, terbaru JVC Kenwood, Linaro dan OpenSynergy, bergabung kembangkan Tizen untuk otomotif


Automotive Grade Linux (AGL), sebuah proyek kolaborasi open source untuk mengembangkan software stack umum (common) berbasis Linux untuk mobil terhubung (connected car), hari ini mengumumkan bahwa JVC KENWOOD Corporation, Linaro dan OpenSynergy telah bergabung dengan Linux Foundation dan AGL untuk berkolaborasi pada penciptaan sebuah platform referensi otomotif terbuka untuk mempercepat inovasi dan menghadirkan pengalaman mobil terhubung.

Dengan industri otomotif terus berkembang untuk merangkul tingkat konektivitas baru dalam kendaraan, kebutuhan untuk kerangka referensi terbuka yang memungkinkan inovasi yang cepat sangat diperlukan. Anggota AGL berkomitmen untuk tujuan mengembangkan platform otomotif umum dan terbuka untuk OEM dan pemasok untuk memanfaatkan, kontribusi dan membangun produk komersial dan teknologi diatasnya.

"Tujuan kami adalah untuk menciptakan sebuah platform yang dapat digunakan oleh seluruh industri sebagai dasar untuk memberikan pengalaman mobil terhubung dengan konsumen," kata Dan Cauchy, general manager otomotif di Linux Foundation. "Memiliki sebuah platform otomotif common berarti bahwa OEM dan pemasok mulai dengan dasar yang terbukti di mana mereka dapat membangun pengalaman mereka sendiri. Kami senang bisa melihat keragaman anggota baru yang bergabung untuk mewakili berbagai perspektif inovasi software otomotif yang lebih luas."

"Membawa open source ke mobil adalah langkah alami yang akan membantu untuk merevolusi industri dengan cara yang sama seperti Linux telah mendorong inovasi di industri lain," kata Yoshio Sonoda, General Manager, JVC KENWOOD Corporation. "AGL memberikan kita dengan tempat netral untuk berkolaborasi dengan seluruh ekosistem untuk menciptakan sebuah platform umum untuk mobil masa depan."

"Industri otomotif membutuhkan sebuah platform terbuka untuk mobil terhubung untuk meningkatkan inovasi di seluruh rantai pasokan untuk kepentingan pengemudi dan penumpang," kata David Rusling, CTO Linaro. "Kami berharap dapat bekerja sama dengan AGL untuk membantu menghindari fragmentasi dan mempercepat ketersediaan platform otomotif common yang terbuka."

"AGL adalah framework open source yang dipimpin oleh komunitas yang akan mempercepat adopsi dan mendorong inovasi baru dan cepat dalam pengalaman mobil terhubung," kata Stefaan Sonck Thiebaut, General Manager OpenSynergy. "Kami berharap dapat memberikan kontribusi untuk proyek yang penting ini dan membantu industri otomotif menuai keuntungan dari pengembangan software terbuka dan kolaboratif."

Komunitas open source AGL terdiri dari hampir 50 pengembang yang bekerja dari lintas perusahaan di platform otomotif common yang terbuka yang dapat digunakan oleh setiap produsen atau pemasok untuk memajukan inovasi industri. AGL membangun di atas Tizen IVI dan menambahkan aplikasi kunci yang dikembangkan dengan HTML5 dan JavaScript ke platform referensi open source tunggal. Kolaborasi terbuka dalam komunitas AGL berarti dukungan untuk multi-arsitektur dan fitur yang menunjang dalam pengalaman in-vehicle infotainment (IVI).



JVC KENWOOD Corporation, Linaro and OpenSynergy Join The Linux Foundation's Automotive Grade Linux

Forty-six member companies now collaborating to develop an open automotive platform for the connected car

SAN FRANCISCO, November 19, 2014 – Automotive Grade Linux (AGL), a collaborative open source project developing a common, Linux-based software stack for the connected car, today announced that JVC KENWOOD Corporation, Linaro and OpenSynergy are joining The Linux Foundation and AGL to collaborate on the creation of an open automotive reference platform to accelerate rapid innovation and delivery of the connected car experience.

As the automotive industry evolves to embrace a new level of connectivity in the vehicle, the need for an open reference framework to enable rapid innovation is needed. AGL members are committed to the goal of developing a common and open automotive platform for OEMs and suppliers to utilize, contribute to and build commercial products and technologies upon.

“Our goal is to create a platform that the entire industry can use as a basis for delivering a connected car experience to consumers,” said Dan Cauchy, general manager of automotive, The Linux Foundation. “Having a common automotive platform means that OEMs and suppliers are starting with a proven foundation on which they can build their own experience. We are thrilled to see such a diversity of new members joining who represent an even broader range of perspectives on automotive software innovation.”

About the newest Automotive Grade Linux members:

JVC KENWOOD Corporation develops and manufactures products and services for the car electronics, professional systems, home and mobile electronics, and entertainment businesses. Headquartered in Yokohoma, Japan, JVC KENWOOD Corporation addresses a variety of global markets in which open source plays a pivotal role.

“Bringing open source to the automobile is a natural step that will help to revolutionize the industry in the same way Linux has spurred innovation in other industries,” said YOSHIO SONODA, General Manager, JVC KENWOOD Corporation. “AGL provides us with a neutral place to collaborate with the entire ecosystem to create a common platform for the car of the future.”

Linaro Limited is a collaborative engineering organization with more than 200 engineers working on consolidating and optimizing open source software for the ARM architecture, including developer tools, the Linux kernel, ARM power management, and other software infrastructure. Representing the world’s leading technology companies, Linaro’s engineer members are defining the future of Linux on ARM. Linaro is distribution neutral: its goal is to provide the best software foundations to everyone, and to reduce non-differentiating and costly low-level fragmentation.

“The automotive industry needs an open platform for the connected car to increase innovation throughout the entire supply chain for the benefit of drivers and passengers,” said David Rusling, Linaro CTO. “We look forward to working with AGL to help avoid fragmentation and accelerate the availability of an open, common automotive platform.”

OpenSynergy specializes in the development of embedded automotive systems and provides a standards-based software platform called COQOS. The platform contains the necessary components to save time creating telematics or infotainment systems based on Android and Linux while satisfying automotive-specific requirements for connectivity, driver assistance, safety and security.

“AGL is a community-led open source framework that will accelerate adoption and foster new and rapid innovation in the connected car experience,” said Stefaan Sonck Thiebaut, General Manager of OpenSynergy. “We look forward to contributing to this important project and helping the auto industry reap the benefits of open and collaborative software development.”

The AGL open source community consists of almost 50 developers working across company lines on an open, common automotive platform that can be used by any manufacturer or supplier to advance industry innovation. They recently made available their first software release. AGL builds on top of Tizen IVI and adds key applications developed in HTML5 and JavaScript into a single open source reference platform. Open collaboration within the AGL community means support for multi-architectures and features to bolster the in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) experience.
