Automotive Grade Linux specs ready for devs

logoAutomotive Grade Linux (AGL), connected car Linux-based software announced availability of the AGL Requirements Specification 1.0.

They claim it’s the industry’s first open in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) software specification that allows automakers and suppliers to collaborate.

AGL is building an open automotive platform, allowing automakers to use the software stack based on Linux and create their own branded services. Open collaboration within the AGL community means support for multi-architectures and features to bolster the IVI experience.

AGL Requirements Specification 1.0 allows OEMs and suppliers to identify gaps between the specification and code and provide input directly to the developer community and the specs:

  • Define a highly integrated Linux-based software reference platform for IVI.

  • Defines requirements for multiple services such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, multimedia, location based services, application lifecycle management and several others.

  • Define both a native and HTML5 application framework.

  • Cnnectivity and interaction with the vehicle bus (CAN, MOST) with APIs for middleware and applications.

The AGL Requirements Specification 1.0 and AGL code are free to download and anyone can participate in the open source community. Learn more:
