We were excited to have AGL announce our membership in their open source project. Here are some key excerpts from their press release on the announcement from earlier this week:

SAN FRANCISCO, December 17, 2018 — Automotive Grade Linux (AGL), a collaborative cross-industry effort developing an open source platform for in-vehicle technology, has announced that BearingPoint, BedRock Systems, Big Lake Software, Cognomotiv, and Dellfer have joined AGL and the Linux Foundation.

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.

“Dellfer’s mission is to secure connected cars and IoT devices with security built-in from the inside out. Having a key open source platform that the automotive ecosystem can develop around is a key development for us,” said Tom Wallace, VP of Sales and Business Development at Dellfer. “By joining Automotive Grade Linux, we hope to become a de facto standard for IoT security, and we look forward to helping advance the overall security of the platform.”
