Automotive Grade Linux (AGL), a collaborative cross-industry effort developing an open source platform for connected car technologies, has announced that CloudBees, Crave.io, FPT Software, and Github have joined AGL.
“As we dive into the second quarter of this year, we are thrilled to see our community grow and flourish,” said Dan Cauchy, Executive Director of Automotive Grade Linux at the Linux Foundation. “The traction we are experiencing can be seen through new members as well as the growing number of AGL-based products and services coming to market. We are happy to welcome our new members and look forward to leveraging their expertise as we continue to build out new features and functionalities on the AGL platform.”
AGL is an open source project at the Linux Foundation that is bringing together automakers, suppliers and technology companies to accelerate the development and adoption of a fully open, shared software platform for all technology in the vehicle, from infotainment to autonomous driving. Sharing a single software platform across the industry reduces fragmentation and accelerates time-to-market by encouraging the growth of a global ecosystem of developers and application providers that can build a product once and have it work for multiple automakers.
