SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 22, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Automotive Grade Linux (AGL), a collaborative cross-industry effort developing an open platform for the connected car, today announced that the latest release of the AGL infotainment platform, Unified Code Base (UCB) 5.0, will be available later this month and on display at CES 2018 along with more than 20 other AGL demos by member companies. Automotive Grade Linux is an open source project hosted at The Linux Foundation.
"AGL has gained a tremendous amount of traction this year as the leading open source automotive infotainment platform. This is clearly reflected by the number of participants that will be demonstrating AGL-based products and services at CES 2018 in the AGL Demo Showcase." said Dan Cauchy, Executive Director of Automotive Grade Linux at The Linux Foundation. "We are very excited to showcase a variety of AGL use cases that our members have developed at CES."
Developed through a joint effort by dozens of member companies, the AGL Unified Code Base (UCB) is an open source infotainment platform that can serve as the de facto industry standard. 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 that can build a product once and have it work for multiple automakers.
Many AGL members have already started integrating the UCB into their production plans, such as Toyota. Announced earlier this year, the 2018 Toyota Camry with Entune 3.0 is the first Toyota vehicle on the market with an AGL-based infotainment system in the United States.
The AGL UCB 5.0 includes an operating system, middleware and application framework. Key features include:
With the UCB platform maturing, AGL has expanded beyond infotainment and work is currently underway to develop software profiles using the UCB for telematics, instrument cluster and heads-up-display (HUD). The AGL roadmap also includes advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), functional safety and autonomous driving in the future.
Automotive Grade Linux at CES 2018
With more than 110 members, AGL is supported by a broad ecosystem of automakers, suppliers, semiconductor companies and software and service providers. Many of these members have integrated AGL into their demonstrations at CES 2018.
As an official CES 2018 exhibitor, AGL will have a dedicated AGL ballroom in The Venetian, Lido 3002-3004, that will be open to the public from January 9-12, 2018. The AGL ballroom will feature demonstrations of the latest UCB 5.0 infotainment platform, as well as more than 15 AGL members demonstrating their technology and proof of concepts (PoCs) running on Automotive Grade Linux:
Additional demonstrations by AGL members across the show include:
About Automotive Grade Linux (AGL)
Automotive Grade Linux is a collaborative open source project that is bringing together automakers, suppliers and technology companies to accelerate the development and adoption of a fully open software stack for the connected car. With Linux at its core, AGL is developing an open platform from the ground up that can serve as the de facto industry standard to enable rapid development of new features and technologies. Although initially focused on In-Vehicle-Infotainment (IVI), AGL is the only organization planning to address all software in the vehicle, including instrument cluster, heads up display, telematics, advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and autonomous driving. The AGL platform is available to all, and anyone can participate in its development. Learn more: https://www.automotivelinux.org/
