The Linux Foundation's Automotive Grade Linux
You couldn't ask for a better segue than this, from Smith's book about the pitfalls of automotive security to our community's solution to them—that is, The Linux Foundation's Automotive Grade Linux (AGL) new Unified Code Base (UCB) distribution. AGL is a Linux Foundation Workgroup dedicated to creating open-source software solutions for automotive applications. AGL's UCB distribution is a collaborative open-source project developing a common, Linux-based software stack for the connected car. Leveraging the best software components from AGL and other existing open-source projects, such as Tizen and GENIVI Alliance, UCB enables development of in-vehicle-infotainment systems while allowing different profiles to be created from the same code base to address all applications in the car, such as instrument cluster, heads-up display, telematics and connected car. UCB is based on the Yocto Project and offers a complete embedded-Linux development environment with tools, metadata and documentation. AGL's members make up a who's who of the automotive, IT and electronics industries, including Toyota, Ford, Intel, Sony, Linaro, Wind River and scores of others.

With all the industry talk about the benefits of Linux on Power and all the performance advantages offered by its open architecture, you may be considering a move in that direction. If you are thinking about analytics, big data and cloud computing, you would be right to evaluate Power. The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model. It doesn’t consider the total cost of ownership, and it doesn’t consider the advantage of real processing power, high-availability and multithreading like a demon.
This ebook takes a look at some of the practical applications of the Linux on Power platform and ways you might bring all the performance power of this open architecture to bear for your organization. There are no smoke and mirrors here—just hard, cold, empirical evidence provided by independent sources. I also consider some innovative ways Linux on Power will be used in the future.Get the Guide
