Automotive adopts Linux open source & software reuse principles for IV @TechieLew

Automotive adopts Linux open source & software reuse principles for IV @TechieLew

If software is eating the world, it’s thanks in no small part to Linux. Since being developed as a desktop operating system (OS) in the late 1980s and early 1990s, variants of the Linux kernel have proliferated into everything from network servers and mobile phones to embedded devices such as flight computers and industrial control systems. The success of Linux in these segments is largely due to an open source distribution model, configurability, the self-fulfilling prophecy of its own widespread use, and the ability to iterate quickly on the platform through code reuse, and while initial concerns around the security and determinism of the kernel kept it from deployment in safety-critical systems, those have been allayed. Now Linux is becoming entrenched in another key embedded sector with the emergence of Automotive Grade Linux (AGL) . Automotive Grade Linux emergence an...
