War Stories from the Automotive FLOSS Front

fun and pain doing FLOSS in the car

We (Elektrobit automotive) do FLOSS based production projects in various car brands for several years. We’d like to entertain some of our most delightful encounters of the third kind in the automotive world and tell why we love bringing FLOSS on the road, where some aspects of FLOSS challenge all of us, and why we have lots of fun.

fun stories trying to turn automotive industry open source, e.g.

  • GENIVI - MISRA Checker auf Kernel 8-o
  • Dilemma: automotive safety vs open source
  • Cars are sold for 8 years, last 15 years. Does Linux?
    • leverage Layering, containers, kernel ABI stability, ... ?
