New Linux Foundation Members Collaborate on Connected Car Technology

Four Companies Join Automotive Grade Linux Steering Committee to Invest in Open Source and Car of the Future

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/26/14 -- Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit - The Linux Foundation, the nonprofit organization dedicated to accelerating the growth of Linux, today announced that Advanced Driver Information Technology GmbH, ATS Advanced Telematic Systems GmbH, GlobalLogic, and OBIGO are joining the organization.

The companies are also joining the Automotive Grade Linux (AGL) Steering Committee, comprised of automotive, communication, semiconductor, electronics and academic contributors, that are working to create a Linux-based platform to meet the security and performance requirements of the automotive industry.

The Linux Foundation's AGL initiative continues to grow rapidly as the auto industry realizes that Linux -- both highly customizable and extremely powerful -- provides newfound control and innovation opportunities that are simply not possible with a proprietary operating system.

Today's new members join existing AGL participants Hyundai, Intel, Jaguar Land Rover, LG, Nissan, Panasonic, Renesas, Samsung, Texas Instruments, Toyota and many others that support open source as the optimal platform for a broad set of applications ranging from the dashboard to in-vehicle infotainment (IVI).

More information about today's newest Linux Foundation members:

Advanced Driver Information Technology Corporation (ADIT), a joint venture between DENSO Corporation and Robert Bosch Car Multimedia GmbH, develops navigation and multimedia-related components for its parent companies. The company is focused on development of navigation and multimedia-compliant software platforms.

"Consumers expect in-car navigation to be as simple, seamless and slick as the map or GPS software they so often access on their smartphones and tablets," said Tetsuri Ishikawa, Software Group Manager at ADIT. "ADIT is focused on delivering technology solutions quickly and economically to adapt to the changing customer demands. Becoming a member of The Linux Foundation will boost our ability to increase development efficiency and to save costs around next-generation IVI platforms."

ATS Advanced Telematic Systems GmbH provides technology for the connected car by bridging the gap between the IT and automotive industries. ATS' team of highly skilled software engineers and project managers are experts at building and implementing scalable, distributed software architectures for the automotive market.

"Our focus is on building the future of connected cars and connected mobility," said Arthur Taylor, CTO at ATS Advanced Telematic Systems. "Linux Foundation and AGL membership is a natural fit as we support the development of a vibrant ecosystem for personalized vehicle services and applications."

GlobalLogic is a full-lifecycle product development services company that collaborates with technology and technology-driven companies to help them realize new revenue opportunities, gain competitive advantages, accelerate time-to-market and achieve high levels of product quality. GlobalLogic operates design and engineering centers around the world working with start-ups and industry leaders in the digital media, electronics, healthcare, infrastructure, finance, retail, and telecom industries.

"The Linux Foundation's progress in the quickly changing automotive market is a significant benefit to the reliability, security and performance of our Nautilus platform, a solution accelerator that enables our IVI and auto manufacturing partners to quickly and cost-effectively develop hybrid Android/Linux-based systems," said Alex Agizm, CTO Embedded Systems at GlobalLogic.

OBIGO, a HTML5 web platform solution company with business areas of Automotive, IPTV and Mobile SW solutions, Web applications and services, has been the world's leading provider of rich Internet service and software solutions in the embedded industry. Leading global trends in the embedded industry, OBIGO provides innovative, rich and proven time-to-market solutions. The range of solutions includes HTML5 browser, App Framework and Web applications for various devices and platforms such as Automotive, Smart phones, Smart TV and other consumer electronics.

"The Linux Foundation shares OBIGO's mission to exceed consumer expectations regarding what today's IVI experience should be," said David Hwang, Chief Executive Officer at OBIGO. "As AGL marshals the tech and car industries, our Linux Foundation partnership will help us deliver what customers want from their cars faster and more efficiently."

"The automotive industry is the latest vertical market to adopt Linux as the next generation platform for infotainment and connected car applications," said Amanda McPherson, Vice President of Marketing and Developer Programs at The Linux Foundation.

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...

Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
