Carmakers, Linux developers to collaborate face-to-face on advancing Linux in the auto industry
SAN FRANCISCO, October 10, 2011 – The Linux Foundation, the nonprofit organization dedicated to accelerating the growth of Linux, today announced the first ever Automotive Linux Summit. The event will take place November 28, 2011 at the Pacifico Yokohama in Yokohama, Japan.
A major shift is underway in the automotive industry. Carmakers are using new technologies to address consumer expectations for the same connectivity in their cars as they’ve come to expect in their homes and offices. From dashboard computing to In-Vehicle-Infotainment (IVI), automobiles are becoming the latest wireless devices – on wheels.
The Linux operating system is providing a common platform that helps connect the world’s network of devices, including cars. As an open source operating system, it provides automakers and their partners the flexibility they require to bring to market the latest technology features quickly.
The Automotive Linux Summit is specifically designed for the automotive industry and the growing cross-industry ecosystem for the future of mobility solutions. This premier vendor-neutral business and technical conference will bring together the brightest minds from the automotive industry, the Linux developer community and the mobility ecosystem. Attendees can expect to learn about how to use Linux and open source software in automotive applications ranging from in-vehicle on-board systems to cloud solutions for vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure communications.
A variety of the world’s leaders in automotive innovation are participating in the Automotive Linux Summit. The Steering Committee is made up of representatives from DENSO Corporation, Intel, NEC, Nissan, Renesas and Toyota, among others.
“Automakers are lining up to learn more about Linux and the Linux development process, and developers need to learn more about how to work with these companies,” said Jim Zemlin, executive director at The Linux Foundation. “By hosting the first ever Automotive Linux Summit, we can help bring together the brightest minds from these communities to maximize the opportunity for Linux in this marketplace.”
The Call For Participation is open through October 21, 2011. Suggested topics include, but are not limited to:
• Open Innovation and new business models
• Open source compliance and licensing
• The role of cloud computing in infotainment, traffic management and telematics
