Vehicles have been an emerging platform for Linux for several years, with many of the auto makers and a few technology standards bodies participating in collaborative development, plus steadfast support for the trend from The Linux Foundation. The foundation's Automotive Linux Summit is coming up in Edinburgh, October 24 to 25, and features a number of top speakers. The summit actually covers Linux and open source technologies for infotainment (IVI), driver assistance, connected cars and more. The agenda for this latest conference is set, and here are the details.
The Automotive Linux Summit will feature speakers from around the globe "who are accelerating open source advancements in the auto industry." A Hacker Lounge will also showcase a car with a Tizen-based IVI system for developers to test code and try out new apps. The Automotive Summit is also co-located with LinuxCon and CloudOpen Europe.
