Going Along with Linux and the Open Community - Satoru Ueda, Japan OSS Promotion Forum, Chair of Embedded System Sub-Committee, Sony Corporation

Now, no one must be doubtful for Linux and the related OSS are irreplaceable software fundamentals for consumer electronics and mobile products. However think about 10 years ago, when some of CE vendors made strategic decision to use Linux for the operating system for the products, only few people believed in because of Linux at that moment did not so much take account of the use for those embedded products. It is our great appreciation to the Linux community which has been helping us since then.

 In this session, we would like to review our past steps to make Linux as such important technology fundamental and discuss what we should do to advance this ideal situation toward future. Especially many of Japanese developers seem to have minorities to collaborate with the international open communities which are not only because of the language barrier but also some social psychological back ground. I would like to introduce those aspects based on my 10 years experience and discuss about what we should overcome and help those Japanese developers. I wish this session to become helpful automotive industry people who are working together with the international open community.

Linux Powered Clusters - Road Less Travelled - Prashant Deshpande, KPIT Cummins Infosystems Limited

GNU/Linux is one of the most scalable OS and one wonders why it can’t power contemporary automotive Instrument Clusters. GNU/Linux is already powering In-Vehicle Infotainment Systems. The same HMI & user experience is possible on Instrument Cluster. Additionally, Instrument Cluster needs more real time responsiveness and is a critical component of any vehicle. Recent GNU/Linux kernel has an in-built Real-time personality. It can provide Instrument Clusters with a progressive platform spanning multiple feature-sets while significantly reducing Development and Test Cycles. From Hybrid to reconfigurable & futuristic Instrument Clusters, GNU/Linux can power all. This paper discusses suitability, common concerns, challenges & adoption strategies of GNU/Linux for Instrument Clusters. Audience: Product & Engineering managers looking forward to GNU/Linux as potential OS Solution

Who can do what for your Linux Development? - Hisao Munakata, Renesas

When you adopted commercial software for your development, its support model might be relatively simple. If you pay money, someone provides a support for you. However this model does not apply for opensource as it is not developed by a single entity. Linux development is shared effort contributed by a broad range of global developers, and it is delivered as the no-warranty basis. I wonder IVI developers who start using opensource, may have confusion about a support scheme. Linux kernel community does not care for each product development, and you cannot send your question to the community mailing list. Then, who can help you? Of course, Linux is already adopted in various mission critical scenes, and it implies there exist some supporting structure. In this session, I will introduce who are doing what for Linux and how you can find a solution for your embedded Linux system.

Silver Bullet of Virtualization (Pitfalls, Challenges and Concerns) Continued - Artemi Ivanov, Cogent Embedded

Ability to combine multiple software stacks on a single die is an attractive alternative to complex, distributed infotainment designs. It helps to save physical space, lower power consumption and heat generation, contributing to overall cost reduction of development, qualification and production. Until recently paravirtualization was the only solution to address safety and security concerns when combining multiple functions on a single SOC. Modern ARM virtualization extensions allow to implement CPU virtualization in a transparent way for existing software. However, it opens a new set of problems to solve: complexities of safe I/O and peripherals sharing, power management, big.LITTLE impact. This presentation will cover most common challenges and pitfalls of virtualization in automotive/IVI space. It is targeted at engineers/architects/managers involved in automotive platforms design.

Application Oriented Computer Vision Pipelines for Automotive Industry - Oytun Eren Sengul & Karem Caliskan, InfoDif

When we think cars, we're uncomfortable about their technology and security. That's why we thought how can we integrate our different type of imaging technologies to automotive industry. We've got some questions and solutions with today's technology:
Who used my car by face recognition and steering wheel lock whilst not define driver into?
How my fuel downs half, kids?
Your car will sense insecure driver coming from back and warn you about that and recognize that car's license plate, may take photo shoot and notify it to police. This feature could be at all public vehicles. For example, if public buses has this feature, they may recognize cars whose are parking in a wrong places and take a photos of them. Detecting location and defines there is no parking at highways. Industry leaders and general audience can expect to get these features into their cars and doesn't include technical level.

Shorten Device Boot time for Automotive IVI and Navigation Systems - Jim Huang, 0xlab

Android have taken the smartphone and tablet markets, along with the ease of application development and the diverse availability of third party applications, which made it a unique choice for various markets, including Automotive IVI and navigation systems. However, Android (and some customized Linux based system) takes relatively long time to boot up the system. This session is expected to propose a new approach of the mixture of ARM hibernation (suspend to disk) and Linux user-space checkpointing to shorten device boot time, which is known to be one of the key factors for Automotive IVI adoption.
