Automotive Grade Linux speeds in-car infotainment developments


Renesas has started volume shipment of its first R-Car system-on-chip (SoC) incorporating Automotive Grade Linux (AGL)-based software. AGL is a cross-industry effort to develop a fully open software stack for the connected car.

By Graham Prophet , Aug. 16, 2017 – Renesas says that it considers AGL as an essential step to expand the base of software developers. The Renesas R-Car Starter Kit and AGL-based software is accelerating the development of automotive in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) applications, and moving car makers closer to the realization of connected cars. Renesas is a platinum member of the AGL Collaborative Project , and car makers such as Toyota are participating to promote open source software development. By supporting these activities, Renesas anticipates it will become possible for more system manufacturers to easily develop automotive applications, even for developers who are not accustomed to embedded application software development, which will contribute to accelerating IVI deployments.

Renesas' first R-Car SoC incorporating AGL platform-based software has started volume shipment for Toyota's new 2018 Camry which is scheduled to come to market in late summer 2017 in the U.S. and will be Toyota's first car model to run Automotive Grade Linux (AGL) software for its infotainment system.
