Automotive Grade Linux (AGL), an open-source platform for connected car technologies, announces that Wuhan Bluestar Technology has joined as a Silver member, and Candera, IDW Technologies, Reutlingen University, and T-Systems have joined AGL as Bronze members.

AGL is an open source project at the Linux Foundation that is bringing together automakers, suppliers and technology companies to accelerate the development and adoption of a fully open, shared software platform for all technology in the vehicle, from infotainment to autonomous driving. Sharing a single software platform across the industry reduces fragmentation and accelerates time-to-market by encouraging the growth of a global ecosystem of developers and application providers that can build a product once and have it work for multiple automakers.
