FPT joins the Automotive Grade Linux project at the Linux Foundation to accelerate Connected Car development
The Linux Foundation is a world-class technology consortium which enables mass innovation through open source with the prominent Connected Car project – Automotive Grade Linux (AGL). As a member, FPT will contribute resources, infrastructures and knowledge to an expansive open source ecosystem. The company plans to support development of shared technology resources by providing exclusive whitepapers and articles as well as automotive engineering services and solutions to the AGL project. FPT will also collaborate with members across industries to enhance AGL capabilities in Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Autonomous Driving, In-Vehicle Infotainment, Functional Safety, Virtualization and so on.
AGL is an open source project that is changing the way automotive manufacturers build software. Adopting an open platform across the industry enables automakers and suppliers to share and reuse the same code base, which reduces development costs, decreases time-to-market for new products and reduces fragmentation across the industry.
“FPT’s mission is to offer comprehensive automotive services and solutions that facilitates the use of infotainment, telematics and autonomous driving”. Said Mr. Nguyen Duc Kinh, Director of Automotive and Manufacturing industry, FPT Software. “We yearn to collaborate and contribute to the world’s largest open collaboration communities to jointly develop the next-gen technologies of Connected Car.”
The membership will not only further advance FPT’s automotive capabilities but also strengthen the company’s commitment to open innovation, which enables FPT to better serve global customers working on Connected Car particularly and automotive-related projects generally.
“The Automotive Grade Linux platform continues to mature thanks to the support and technical prowess of the community behind it,” said Dan Cauchy, Executive Director of Automotive Grade Linux at the Linux Foundation. “We are excited to have FPT, a leading tech firm in Southeast Asia, join the community, and we look forward to their contributions and leveraging their expertise in automotive engineering.”
FPT has offered solutions and services to some 200 world’s top automakers, OEMs, Tier-1 suppliers, and semiconductor manufacturers in the automotive industry. The company leverages forefront innovations and provides engineering services to customers in multiple industry-specific projects, ranging from Smart Applications, HMI, Middleware to Hardware layers. By utilizing extensive experience and accumulated know-how and employing a large pool of talents including nearly 3,000 automotive experts and engineers, FPT implements solutions with processes and quality in accordance with AUTOSAR, Automotive SPICE Level 3, MBD and other global standards.
