BayLibre joins Automotive Grade Linux

bl-agl-lf-logosEarlier this year BayLibre joined the Linux Foundation. We are big fans of the LF: their efforts to improve open source software is a goal shared by BayLibre. We’re proud to call ourselves a Member.

Today we are pleased to announce that BayLibre has also joined Automotive Grade Linux, a Linux Foundation project. AGL is an exciting effort involving more than 100 member companies working together to define, improve and deploy the next generation software platform for the automotive industry.

BayLibre is currently involved in two efforts within AGL. First, we are contributing toward platform support and improving support for the SoCs and reference platforms within the OS release. Second, BayLibre is helping to define and implement test, validation and continuous integration methodology for the project as a whole. Both efforts hope to improve quality, interoperability and increase the pace of innovation within the Automotive Grade Linux project.
