Using Android in Automotive Systems with Linux Containers



Running Android in the automotive environment is associated with a number of constraints on the platform and the applications. Linux containers present one of the options of running Android on top of an automotive platform and offer some interesting interoperability possibilities. By attending this session you will be in a better position to understand challenges, technical possibilities and trade-offs when running Android on top of a “native” Linux platform (a GENIVI compliant stack in our example).

What You Will Learn

  • Challenges of running Android in automotive environment
  • What are Linux containers
  • How to configure a container
  • How to achieve better security
  • Considerations specific to running Android
  • How to interoperate with an automotive (e.g. GENIVI) stack
