Road-Tripping With Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| Customers demand the latest technology from their vehicles, especially when
| it comes to entertainment. However, the development cycle for cars is much
| longer than that of electronics, so there's always a lag. Linux can help,
| writes Wind River Systems' Paul Tu.

| Linux has a heritage in the desktop market and its large community of
| software developers offers multiple options to support in-vehicle multimedia
| applications including:
|
| * Popular, industry-standard media formats and file types
| * A variety of ready-to-use audio and video codecs and players
| * Solutions for speech recognition control and output

"I’d be glad to help tilt lotus into into the death spiral. I could do it
Friday afternoon but not Saturday. I could do it pretty much any time the
following week."

Automotive Linux drives innovation

,----[ Quote ]
| There are vendors developing embedded operating systems for the automotive
| infotainment market but they do not have the scale to bring all the new and
| exciting capabilities to the equipment quickly. Well established real-time
| operating systems such as Wind River’s VxWorks can have around 50,000
| developers and still can’t provide all the required drivers and interfaces in
| the time needed.Because of this, a number of large car and equipment
| manufacturers have been working on ways to provide innovative new equipment
| designs.
