The Linux Foundation is a world-class technology consortium which
enables mass innovation through open source with the prominent Connected
Car project – Automotive Grade Linux (AGL). As a member, FPT will
contribute resources, infrastructures and knowledge to an expansive open
source ecosystem. The company plans to support development of shared
technology resources by providing exclusive whitepapers and articles as
well as automotive engineering services and solutions to the AGL
project. FPT will also collaborate with members across industries to
enhance AGL capabilities in Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning,
Autonomous Driving, In-Vehicle Infotainment, Functional Safety,
Virtualization and so on.

AGL is an open source project that is changing the way automotive
manufacturers build software. Adopting an open platform across the
industry enables automakers and suppliers to share and reuse the same
code base, which reduces development costs, decreases time-to-market for
new products and reduces fragmentation across the industry.

“FPT’s mission is to offer comprehensive automotive services and
solutions that facilitates the use of infotainment, telematics and
autonomous driving”. Said Mr. Nguyen Duc Kinh, Director of Automotive
and Manufacturing industry, FPT Software. “We yearn to collaborate and
contribute to the world’s largest open collaboration communities to
jointly develop the next-gen technologies of Connected Car.”

The membership will not only further advance FPT’s automotive
capabilities but also strengthen the company’s commitment to open
innovation, which enables FPT to better serve global customers working
on Connected Car particularly and automotive-related projects generally.

“The Automotive Grade Linux platform continues to mature thanks to the
support and technical prowess of the community behind it,” said Dan
Cauchy, Executive Director of Automotive Grade Linux at the Linux
Foundation. “We are excited to have FPT, a leading tech firm in
Southeast Asia, join the community, and we look forward to their
contributions and leveraging their expertise in automotive engineering.”

FPT has offered solutions and services to some 200 world’s top
automakers, OEMs, Tier-1 suppliers, and semiconductor manufacturers in
the automotive industry. The company leverages forefront innovations and
provides engineering services to customers in multiple industry-specific
projects, ranging from Smart Applications, HMI, Middleware to Hardware
layers. By utilizing extensive experience and accumulated know-how and
employing a large pool of talents including nearly 3,000 automotive
experts and engineers, FPT implements solutions with processes and
quality in accordance with AUTOSAR, Automotive SPICE Level 3, MBD and
other global standards.

About Automotive Grade Linux (AGL)

Automotive Grade Linux is a collaborative open source project that is
bringing together automakers, suppliers and technology companies to
accelerate the development and adoption of a fully open software stack
for the connected car. With Linux at its core, AGL is developing an open
platform from the ground up that can serve as the de facto industry
standard to enable rapid development of new features and technologies.
Although initially focused on In-Vehicle-Infotainment (IVI), AGL is the
only organization planning to address all software in the vehicle,
including instrument cluster, heads up display, telematics, advanced
driver assistance systems (ADAS) and autonomous driving. The AGL
platform is available to all, and anyone can participate in its
development. Learn more:
