Car companies and their suppliers long ago learned how to take raw steel and turn it into a finished product. When software first entered the car, it was all closed source, but at the turn of the twenty-first century the complexity of software in cars exploded. Even so, OEMs and Tier Ones continued to keep their software proprietary, so much so that most Tier Ones only reluctantly gave source code to their OEM customers. With consumers now demanding the same app based experience their car that they have on their mobile phones and tablets OEMs have turned to open source software to make up the gap. How did the ultra-competitive world of car manufacturers come to together to embrace Automotive Grade Linux and grow a community where Tier One suppliers, OEMs, and hobbyists can come together and build software for your next car? Walt reviews the challenges that were overcome, where we stand today, and what needs to be done to continue to grow the open source automotive community.
