The Automotive Grade Linux (AGL) All Member Meeting takes place bi-annually and brings the AGL community together to learn about the latest developments, share best practices and collaborate to drive rapid innovation across the industry.

AGL is a collaborative open source project hosted by The Linux Foundation that is bringing together automakers, suppliers and technology companies to build a Linux-based, open software platform for automotive applications that can serve as the de facto industry standard.

As a “code first” organization, AGL’s goals are to:

  • Build a single platform for the entire industry
  • Develop 70-80% of the starting point for a production project
  • Reduce fragmentation by combining the best of open source
  • Develop an ecosystem of developers, suppliers, expertise all using a single platform

Although initially focused on infotainment, AGL is the only organization planning to address all software in the vehicle: infotainment, instrument cluster, heads-up-display (HUD), telematics/connected car, advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), functional safety and autonomous driving.

AGL has participants from Automotive, Communications and Semiconductor industries and welcomes contributions from individual developers.
