Cars To Change For The Better With Advanced Technology
Las Vegas: At Consumer Telematics Show (CTS) 2014 Green Hill Software’s CTO David Kleidermacher spoke on the recent trend of Linux OS in cars.
Today, most of the car makers are striving hard to meet the demands of tech savvies. Linux OS has been adapted to revamp the cars for a smarter and safer drive. Linux is anticipated to be an important operating system in cars by 2020, surpassing Microsoft and BlackBerry, predicted IHS Automotive.
“Car makers are also betting on Linux to make computing on wheels a reality, because Linux is developed by a global community of developers and organizations, not just one company. In order to maintain the software in cars, which have a product lifecycle of 5-10 years, car makers are betting on the collaborative development model. This is how Linux wins in auto,” says Jim Zemlin, the executive director of The Linux Foundation
Linux, the robust and versatile computer operating system in Smartphones , supposedly work well with cars also. To add up Linux is an open source that anyone can use it without paying any license fees. More or less automobiles have now become wireless devices on wheels by adapting dashboard computing, in-vehicle infotainment.
“We expect to see Linux-based systems roll out in more and more cars over the next 6-18 months. By using Linux, car makers can leverage what has already been developed for mobile and consumer electronics and apply it to automobiles, “adds Jim Zemlin.
