Open Source IP Compliance for Embedded Linux Systems



Proliferation of consumer devices from hand-held to those embedded in cars’ dashboards continues to drive adoption of Linux-based systems across Automotive, networking, mobile, digital media and entertainment industries. This growth of the embedded Linux market created a tremendous drive for an even broader adoption of Open Source Software (OSS) throughout supply chains, as R&D teams use multi-source approaches to increase rates of innovation while controlling costs.

Along with these opportunities for growth, faster development cycles and lower costs come risks associated with increased complexities in collaborative development, including challenges of OSS IP license compliance.  With automotive IVI development as a case study, attendees of this webinar will learn from industry experts about the challenges and ways to resolve these through the use of industry standard platforms and compliance tools offerings.

What You Will Learn

  • Middleware from GENIVI Alliance or other industry players
  • Approaches to validate your software stack
  • Mitigating risks while moving through the design steps of an Infotainment system
