SAN FRANCISCO,/ PRNewswire/– Automotive Grade Linux (AGL), a collective cross-industry effort establishing an open platform for the connected cars and truck, today announced that it has been called a CES ® 2019 Development Awards Honoree for its Unified Code Base(UCB )platform. As an open source project hosted at The Linux Foundation, AGL is combining car manufacturers, suppliers and technology business to speed up the development and adoption of a completely open software application
stack for all technology in the car.”We are extremely excited to be recognized as a CES 2019 Innovation Award Honoree, and it’s a testament to the power of open source software application and industry partnership,” said Dan Cauchy, Executive Director of Automotive Grade Linux at The Linux Structure. “The credit truly goes to all of the members who support AGL, and the designers who have actually invested the time and effort to develop a robust platform that has rapidly become the de facto industry standard.”
Developed through a joint effort by dozens of member business, the AGL Unified Code Base (UCB)is an open source software application platform for infotainment, telematics and instrument cluster applications. Sharing a single software platform throughout the industry minimizes fragmentation and accelerates time-to-market by encouraging the development of a worldwide environment of designers and application companies that can build a product once and have it work for several car manufacturers.
Numerous AGL members have already started incorporating the UCB into their production strategies. Mercedes-Benz Vans is using AGL as a structure for a brand-new onboard os for its industrial cars, and Toyota’s AGL-based infotainment system is now in Toyota and Lexus automobiles worldwide.
The AGL UCB platform will be on display at CES 2019, in Las Vegas, in the Automotive Grade Linux booth in the Westgate Hotel Structure, booth 1614. To set up a demo or conference for more information about signing up with AGL, please contact.
