On January 4th, Hyundai Motor announced that it has joined the Linux Foundation and its non-profit collaboration platform Automotive Grade Linux (AGL). AGL is an open source project at the Linux Foundation that is changing the way automotive manufacturers build software. More than 140 members are working together to develop a common platform that can serve as the de facto industry standard.
Paul Choo, vice president and head of the Infotainment Technology Center at Hyundai Motor Co., said: “Open collaboration is essential as we realize our connected car vision. AGL has built a robust platform that offers the flexibility to design and build new services on top of it, and quickly bring them to market. We look forward to working with the community to expand the platform and collaboratively develop the underlying technologies that are vital to the next generation of connected vehicles.”
