As Linux is used more and more in automobiles, the transition of the auto industry to an open source model of software development has steadily moved forward while occasionally encountering some unique challenges. A lot of these ""speed bumps"" were predictable, and others were completely unexpected. Automotive alliances like GENIVI have first identified and then addressed many of these concerns, and have taken steps to proactively enrich the open source community, while encouraging their member companies like Mentor Graphics, the car companies themselves and Tier One suppliers to build differentiated commercial solutions that are now appearing on the world's roads and highways. This session is intended for all who are interested in discovering, discussing and solving business issues and business-focused technical challenges around the move to common infrastructures in automotive software.
