Keynote: IP, Open Source Software, and the Latest in Mobile Consumer Electronics - Keith Bergelt, OIN

From smartphones to tablets to navigation and entertainment devices for the automobile, a vast array of consumer electronics that we use every day operate on open source software – for example, open source Android based handsets have grown substantial market share since being introduced a few short years ago. Significant innovations in open source software have opened the market to increased competition, and exploded feature sets and capabilities, while dramatically driving down cost for consumers. As competition in consumer electronics has increased, so too has the complexity of navigating licensing and intellectual property in the space. The influx of open source based consumer electronics is a prime example of why technology business leaders, including chief intellectual property officers and licensing executives, need to increase their awareness around open source and the associated intellectual property landscape. Keith Bergelt, CEO of Open Invention Network will discuss open source and its use in consumer electronics growth strategies as well as outline ways that companies can protect and enable themselves, while continuing to drive market demand.

Start-ups, Venture Capital and IVI: the View from Silicon Valley - Alison Chaiken, Mentor Graphics

Electric vehicles, insurance telematics and ride/car-sharing are recent foci of startup activity in Silicon Valley.  In 2011 Silicon Valley Nissan Leaf owners have produced a sufficiently compelling driver display that Nissan sent staff from Japan to examine it. Telematics and car-share start-ups are not only installing new software in vehicles but controlling vehicle behavior via the CAN bus.The nascent Right to Repair movement is a sign that awareness of vehicle software security issues has reached the masses.  How might traditional industry players best work with these new actors? 
The venture investment community that recently brought forth social media has now noticed IVI.  New technologies will change the way OEMs interact with both customers and dealers, as government regulators address concerns like automotive data privacy and driver distraction.  The audience is engineers and managers who are curious about U.S. developments outside Detroit.

From RTOS to Linux - Ville Voutilainen, Symbio

Linux is growing strong in embedded devices. Linux has a large number of contributors, a good hardware support, a rich software ecosystem, and industry standard APIs. There are a lot of benefits to gain from porting a system running on RTOS to Linux.
Fortunately porting software to run on Linux is straightforward. Unfortunately, reaching optimal performance is a large task. Application running on Linux depends on many external libraries, each implementing a specific service or function efficiently. These external libraries have different optimal usages, licensing terms, and quality. Selecting a correct set of libraries is difficult.
One approach to the problem is by first emulating the original RTOS implementation. Then gradually and iteratively refactor the initial software port until accepted quality level is reached.

On the Road with FOSS: Motivations and Challenges for the Use of FOSS in the Automotive Industry - Claus-Peter Wiedemann, BearingPoint GmbH

According to our recent study, Automotive companies have begun understanding and embracing the FOSS paradigm of collaboration and reuse. Joint efforts like GENIVI®, a non-profit industry alliance, driving the broad adoption of a Linux based In-Vehicle Infotainment open-source development platform, help evolve standards, allow easier differentiation, and make more efficient the process of integrating applications. But the in-vehicle FOSS adoption rate could be much faster. Outside of a limited number of systems, most of them Linux based, the industry still “blacklists” FOSS. And GPLv3 in particular presents a stumbling block that has slowed, and could ultimately stop, the use of FOSS in automobiles. This talk will address where the industry is today, and where are the challenges and opportunities moving forward. It is targeted at business/legal professionals as well as system architects.

Virtualization: One Size Does Not Fit All - Ned Miljevic, MontaVista Software LLC

With the dramatic increase in computing power provided by multi-core SoC’s we can run many more applications in a single system. The problem is how to configure the system so that it will accommodate all the demands of today’s IVI systems with “older” applications running next to newer, portable applications. How do you maximize resource utilization and monitor and adjusted the environment dynamically to get the performance you need? Virtualization technologies can help, or hinder, what you can do.

In this session developers and IT professionals will learn about different options available any how and why each one is more appropriate for certain tasks than the next. Also, we will discuss the different ways of managing and controlling the resources, showing that multiple approaches to the concept of virtualization may be deployed using only the features included within the Linux OS.

OSADL License Compliance Audit or "How to avoid Open Source License Violations?" - Till Jaeger, JBB Rechtsanwälte

Experience shows that maintaining Open Source licenses under existing compliance systems has not lead to satisfactory results. Since violating the conditions of Open Source licenses such as the GNU General Public License (GPL) can lead to copyright infringement, licensors can forbid the further distribution of noncompliant products. Open Source Automation Development Lab (OSADL) has therefore assumed the responsibility of developing its own auditing process to ensure that the obligations arising from Open Source licenses are maintained. Initially, this auditing system will be offered for products in which the Linux kernel and associated access libraries are used. The presentation will explain the scope of the audit and details about which license conditions are checked (technically and legally). Furthermore, we will look at the reasons for a need of such an audit.

Lessons Learned From Early Embedded Linux Adopter - Hisao Munakata, Renesas

Linux was originally designed for i386 PC by Linus over 20 years ago. After that PC is the representative environment of Linux development till today. Therefore the use of Linux with PC will not require deep technical understanding of Linux kernel. But if you wanted to run Linux on PC incompatible environment it might not straightforward because it causes various unexperienced troubles. Actually many people who enabled Linux on digital consumer products, network equipments and smart-phones had been struggled a lot to utilize Linux software resources. They have also learned how to collaborate with upstream development community through such effort. To learn history before doing the same effort is a smarter way. So I will introduce our history that include typical failures of embedded Linux newbies and how they solved such issues to make their product.

Does Virtualization Make Linux/GENIVI Systems Flexible, Secure, and Robust? - Olaf Schmidt, OpenSynergy GmbH

Virtualization technology has founds its home in automotive design and allows integration of more functions with fewer ECUs. AUTOSAR functions, AUTOSAR state managers, security functions, shared drivers (e.g. graphics) and the actual Linux/GenIVI operating system are all running on one shared CPU in segregated partitions. But does virtualization make Linux/GenIVI systems flexible, secure, and robust? Can it withstand security concerns? Does virtualization negatively impact the systems' performance? This presentation will be based on the example of integrating various functions with internet connectivity into the head unit and will describe all of the building blocks necessary to put this successfully into practice. This presentation is intended for system architects, engineers responsible for ECUs, embedded software developers, and managers at OEMs, Tier-1, and system houses.

Why Automotive Management Needs Git - Paul Sherwood, CodeThink

As major automotive IVI projects increasingly require integration of many complex components and services, business level costs and risks associated with integration have risen. Lack of deep technical understanding causes organisations to settle for inappropriate tools and processes which can lead to awful efficiency and poor traceability. Git's flexibility and highly performant design, coupled with its ubiquity in core projects including the Linux kernel make it an ideal tool for developing optimized, fully traceable integration processes. However the benefits of Git are not well understood by non-technical managers. 
This talk will highlight the business benefits of Git for large automotive projects in terms that executives, managers and system architects can understand. It should also appeal to developers aiming to justify the adoption of better technical processes to management.

Proprietary Entrapment of Customers - Open Source "Flavor" in Software Supplier Business Models - Ludovic Schurr, Linagora

Practical, business experience shows that not all business models labeled "Open Source" or "FOSS" deserve these qualifications. In a context of growing interest in Free and Open Source Sotware, many software companies have designed various business models in order to attract prospects interested in benefitting from Open Source software and its advantages of independance, cost-cutting, and resource-pooling.
Not all of these business models, however, are faithful to the principles of FOSS. Some are simply proprietary business models with an open source "flavor", but that will not offer any of the expected Free & Open Source advantages mentioned above.
The aim of this talk is to present these various business models, to compare "freemium" to dual-licensing and to the "free-free" (as in both speech & beer) business model, and to raise awareness about the practical consequences for car manufacturers of ordering their embedded and/or infotainment software from subcontractors, depending on their particular business model.
The talk will also cover a couple practical user cases that Linagora had to solve, in the course of its Open Source Software Assurance activity, for clients who have been unwitting victims of proprietary / freemium software entrapment.

Why Would Anyone Develop on Debian/Ubuntu - Wookey, Linaro/Debian

Having your development environment and target environment be the same, no matter what architectures they are, is a powerful thing, and a very unfamiliar idea to your average embedded developer. This is just one of many cool things Debian-based developers take for granted.
This talk will take a look at cross-architecture development practices in Debian and Ubuntu,  including a wider look at the software ecosystem of derivative distributions, and why you might choose to use Debian, Ubuntu or something else for automotive projects. Architecture independence, multiarch, crossbuilding, It is given by someone with 12 years experience of doing this sort of thing for and at various companies.
Some technical details will be given but anyone who knows what a linux distro and a cross-compiler is should be able to follow along

Keynote: A Design Brief for the Intelligent, Evergreen “Forever Open Road” - Paul Copping, TRL Ltd.

International transport research organisations including TRL are currently working together to develop next generation road construction methodologies, We want roads that are more adaptive to demand, more resilient to climate change and more automated in operation. The target is a “forever open road” with an extended asset life and evergreen features. It will be pre-provisioned for the deployment of new applications such as speed management, intelligent intersections, lane guidance systems, dynamic inductive charging, robotic maintenance, with the aim of increasing effective road network capacity. What new opportunities will arise to support these applications? How can we integrate traffic flow data from smart phones, satnavs and progressively autonomous vehicles? Can we feed back real time information on road conditions, traffic speed, safety, congestion, route selection and driver performance? Assuming most central governments will not invest currently, is there a business case for private sector leadership?

Keynote: The Impact of Intelligent Route Selection on Traffic Congestion - Nick Cohn, TomTom

TomTom has recently published a congestion index for selected cities in Europe and North America, which is derived from a historic database of journey times reported by users of their personal navigation devices. Evidence suggests that a driver with real time intelligent route selection can save up to 15% of journey time by avoiding congested areas and using secondary routes.  If 10% of all drivers were to use intelligent route selection, the expected effect would be to increase overall road capacity and significantly reduce journey time for everyone. Personalisation is also available - a driver can request an eco friendly route, or the car might know it will need a stop for EV battery charging and so reserve a charge point slot en route. Where is this technology leading?  Will congestion analytics significantly improve traffic management? What new real time information can be provided in the vehicle and on the road to improve road network effectiveness? How can we achieve maximum traffic flow and safety, with minimum pollution and stress?

Android as a Platform For IVI A Systems: A New Approach - Peter Seidenschwang, Tieto Deutschland GmbH

We expect our cars to be permanently online. Connectivity technologies are standard and they’ll add additional content and new functionality into cars/vehicles. This raises customers’ expectations and requires new and flexible Infotainment solutions.Today we see a paradigm shift within Infotainment architecture. Open-Source platforms will support the user (=customer=consumer) to add new functions and services through the whole product lifecycle. Also in case those are developed or provided by third party. Future systems need to provide such kind of flexible platform for new applications to suppliers.We expect the Android success story of open platform for smart phones will expand and continue in vehicles. However, transferring this nice, modern and smart world into the “Infotainment-world” of a car won’t be an easy job.Looking into details, a car is a pretty specific and difficult environment for mobile Infotainment ideas. On the one hand there are legal and administrative requirements and limitations (e.g. driver distraction), on the other hand there is a huge bunch of security requirements around the integration into the car’s working data systems.By nature these safety and integration issues are not or not fully addressed by today’s smartphone and tablet operating systems. Anyhow, Android and other OpenSource approaches will come more and more into vehicles and their systems. We need to have solutions addressing the above mentioned restrictions and safety requirements in combination with these nice and smart multimedia and internet applications – in a smart, flexible and cost efficient way.With the presentation we'll look in detail into the advantages of an Android based Infotainment solution. But we’ll also analyse disadvantages, restrictions and retentions of such a solution – and we’ll present and discuss ideas and solutions for those issues.

Developing Embedded Linux Systems Sucks, But Continuous Delivery Can Help Fix It - Lars Wirzenius, Codethink Limited

Development and deployment of in-vehicle embedded Linux systems involves significant technical risk – problems often show up in “integration” triggering unexpected costs and delays. Features must be cut and bugs tolerated for fear that upgrading will break other things. This talkwill highlight the benefits of continuous integration (CI) and continuous delivery (CD) for automotive Linux systems. CI builds andtests each commit. CD extends this automation through to delivery of software updates for production systems. New features and fixes can betested and  deployed frequently, automatically and reliably. Cycle time for integration and test is reduced dramatically.
The talk should interest technical system architects, system developers and engineers planning for maintenance of long-lifetime operational in-vehicle Linux systems.

Automotive Location APIs in Tizen - Michael Leibowitz, Intel

This talk will focus on automotive location APIs.  It will cover the spectrum of APIs in Tizen in terms of definition, implementation, and middle-ware.  These APIs include position, mapping, points of interest, and routing.  Additionally, there will be a discussion of the relevant GENIVI location APIs and how they complement the existing Tizen API implementations.
This discussion will be relevant not only to application programmers who are interested in using these interfaces, but also to service providers and system-integrators who wish to productize Tizen in vehicles.  The location topic is of key importance within the automotive industry, as navigation is not only a key value-add, but location is increasingly becoming something that is built-upon for applications other than navigation.

Open UI Frameworks to Enable Feature-Rich HMI - Eva Brucherseifer, Basyskom

In automotive the HMI is becoming one of the most important market factors. Future automobiles will offer new services and use cases going beyond current smartphone features. In addition to the core functionality devices become one element in people's digital life & experience. The HMI is an important part of this and is one of the key discriminators for cars. Open UI frameworks as part of the Linux platform are enabling the creation of outstanding and innovative HMIs. 
This talk will discusses the benefits of existing open UI frameworks as part of an open application platform. The requirements to an open UI framework including technical and non-technical aspects will be outlined. A number of native and web frameworks are currently being evaluated or used in the market. They will be analyzed based on the defined requirements.

A Weston Plugin Based IVI User Interface - Ossama Othman, Intel

The Wayland and Weston streamlined architectures make them ideal technologies on which to build an IVI human-machine interface (HMI).  Furthermore, Weston's extensibility greatly simplifies a HMI developer's tasks by allowing that developer to focus predominantly on the needs of the HMI.  This presentation will discuss the design and implementation of such an HMI, including a Weston based plugin to be proposed for inclusion in the Weston source package.
This presentation is intended for experienced C/C++ developers with interests in Linux based automotive HMI technology, of particular relevance to the Linux ecosystem and this event.  Ossama Othman is a Senior Software Engineer at Intel, is the Tizen IVI Media & Graphics lead, and has presented at several conferences, including OMG Real-Time Workshops.

Boot Time Optimizations - Alexandre Belloni, Adeneo-Embedded

A common problem faced by automotive vendors when embedding Linux is the long boot time before the system is functional. There are many ways to improve boot up time. For a particular project, we had to answer a CAN message from Linux userspace in less than 420 ms from going out of CPU reset. We will describe our methodology and the techniques we finally chose to implement in that particular use case. We will also detail how we measured the boot time efficiently. A live demo will show the results of our work.

Hardware for the Automotive Linux Hobbyist - Nathan Willis, LWN.net

While car-makers and tier-one suppliers move towards Linux en masse, a parallel community of home-brew automotive computing enthusiasts is building its own hardware to meld aftermarket PC hardware with CAN bus, OBD-II, environmental sensors, and existing electrical systems.  This talk will explore:

* sensor and relay hardware used by hacker-hotrodders, including commercial, arduino-based, and custom-made PCB options
* OBD-II and CAN bus equipment
* open source electronic fuel injection and ECU projects
* driver and API coverage for hobbyist hardware

The talk will provide entry points for automotive enthusiasts, as well as highlight missing pieces of potential interest to hardware vendors and software developers interested in after-market automotive Linux.

Android for IVI: Overcoming Enormous Boot Time - Vitaly Vul, Sony Mobile Communications AB

Since the time Android has matured enough to start dominating the smartphone market, there are ongoing talks on how to deploy it in IVI systems. The drivers for these talks are obvious, such as mature UI, touch friendliness, many existing applications and fast time to market. However, things have not gone far beyond prototyping so far, and mostly due to the big fat obstacle of Android boot-up time which is very far from IVI requirements. If the progress fulfilling the warm boot requirements has been substantial, satisfying ones for the cold boot is still problematic: making Android boot in less than 10 seconds is definitely an issue. This talk will concern tweaking Android to satisfy both requirements, and also touch upon sustainability of these tweaks, presenting some flash usage simulation results for the proposed techniques.

Application Management Using DirectFB and ilixi Compositor - Takanari Hayama, IGEL Co.,Ltd.

In this presentation, we present how open source technologies, DirectFB and ilixi compositor, can be used to build a new application management system for intuitive and efficient application management for IVI. DirectFB is well-known graphics middleware that can support multiple display layers, GPU accelerations with full software fallbacks. ilixi compositor is an application/window manager that compose windows of multiple DIrectFB  applications. By using ilixi compositor multiple full-screen apps can run simultaneously, and user can switch applications by looking at their thumbnails. Applications don't need to be aware of ilixi compositor, and therefore Qt apps can also be managed without any modifications. The audiences will see technical details for this architecture. A demo running on embedded platform will also be shown. Engineering background recommended but not required.
