AGL Open Automotive Linux is on a roll now…see it at CES this week.
Toyota Motor Corporation, Panasonic Corporation, DENSO CORPORATION, and Renesas Electronics are upgrading to the Platinum level,
Five Platinum level members (including Mazda, Toyota and 3 key suppliers) is a serious commitment with funding to enable collaborative development beyond just words. I think AGL may actually reach the goals many have been seeking around open automotive software.

“Try before you buy” is the new mantra for innovation in automotive. And a full scale ADAS vehicle is the way to build POCs for automated driving.
The average car had $333 worth of chip content as of 2014, an increase of 11 percent in the past four years
