What Is The Current State of Linux in Connected Cars?

BERLIN and TOKYO --- ATS Advanced Telematic Systems, a German automotive-focused software company specializing in open source and open standards based software solutions for the mobility industry, will present its OTA solution, OTA Plus, at the Automotive Linux Summit, 13 and 14 July, in Tokyo.

OTA Plus is a completely secure suite for over-the-air software updating, including management of package and campaign creation, data transfer and traffic shaping, dependency tracking and resolution, security, and installation and validation of packages. All of the most important components are open source, with a fully transparent development process. The development of OTA Plus began as a collaboration with Automotive Grade Linux (AGL) and the GENIVI Alliance, a non-profit industry alliance of leading automotive OEMs and suppliers which is committed to driving the broad adoption of specified, open source, In-Vehicle Infotainment (IVI) software.

ATS has continued development while remaining 100% compatible with the GENIVI and the AGL Reference Platform, adding commercial features and continuing to advocate for quality, openness, and auditable security in automotive software. "We have been working with AGL members to research possible OTA approaches for the AGL Reference Platform, and develop a proof of concept demonstration of updates based on GENIVI's SOTA server technology," says Arthur Taylor, CTO of ATS. "We are very pleased with the support we have received from the AGL community, and see the alignment on open source OTA technologies as a great example of cooperation between GENIVI and AGL." Taylor will address the summit with a talk on "Open Source Secure Software Updates for Linux-Based IVI Systems" on 13 July, 11 am, at Sakura room.
