Open source. Open standards. Open platforms. These keywords describe how Renesas and OpenSynergy envision the future by investing in open technologies to make the automotive industry more flexible and independent. The Virtual I/O Device (VIRTIO™) standard and the Automotive Grade Linux (AGL) platform are open source projects accelerating the development of new features and technologies for automotive cockpit solutions. They are on the way to serve as de facto automotive industry standards. In this free, 60-minute webinar, Thomas Bruss (Renesas) and Ralph Sasse (OpenSynergy) will give a unique insight into how open source projects create a more independent and flexible automotive industry. They invite you to:

  1. discover how Open Standards can save future mobility stakeholders
    time and cost
  2. learn how the AGL platform can accelerate the development of new
    features and technologies
  3. understand the impact of the VIRTIO standard on hardware and
    software choice
  4. find out about the Renesas OSS strategy, which simplifies VIRTIO integration
  5. gain insight into OpenSynergy’s VIRTIO-based Hypervisor, which runs AGL on a joint reference platform with Renesas
