Wipro has become a silver member of The Linux Foundation and a bronze member of Automotive Grade Linux (AGL).
AGL is a collaborative open source project that is bringing together automakers, suppliers and technology companies to accelerate the development and adoption of a fully-open software stack for connected vehicle services. With Linux at its core, AGL is developing an open platform from the ground up that can serve as the de facto industry standard to enable rapid development of new features and technologies for the automotive segment.
Dan Cauchy, Executive Director, Automotive Grade Linux said, “We are proud to welcome Wipro to the Automotive Grade Linux community. We share a similar goal of wanting to create a more efficient product development process, and we look forward to leveraging Wipro’s IT and product engineering expertise as we kick-off new projects around telematics and connected car services.”
John Slosar, Vice President and Practice Head, Automotive & Aerospace, Product Engineering Services, Wipro said, “Wipro is proud to join the Automotive Grade Linux community. We are excited to collaborate on Automotive Grade Linux with industry leaders and help promote wider adoption of the open-source based products”.
In the last two years, Wipro has been developing projects based on the AGL platform for two Japanese OEMs. Wipro is also developing AGL components for a leading Japanese tier-1 company.
The Linux Foundation is a nonprofit organization enabling mass innovation through open source technologies. In addition to supporting Linux, the Foundation also supports associated open source projects such as Open Network Automation Platform (ONAP), Hyperledger, Cloud Native Computing Foundation, Cloud Foundry Foundation and Automotive Grade Linux, among others.
Open source is empowering enterprises to foray into new areas such as cognitive computing, blockchain, hyper automation, cloud and analytics.
