Automotive Grade Linux (AGL), released its first open source software release from the Linux Foundation in August 2014.

At Telematics West Coast, Magnus Feuer, a systems architect with Jaguar/Land Rover, demonstrated an over-the-air update on a Jaguar S convertible programmed  with open source (Tizen IVI and Automotive Grade Linux).

The trend towards automakers using open source code makes development cycles faster and easier. Ford has committed to sharing its code along with Jaguar Land Rover. At CES many new open source projects were shown by GENIVI and the Open Car infotainment platform.
