Automotive Grade Linux (AGL), an open source project developing a shared software platform for in-vehicle technology has announced the latest code release of the AGL platform, UCB 10, also known under the codename “Jumping Jellyfish.” UCB 10/Jumping Jellyfish includes an operating system, board support package, middleware, application framework and application APIs.

Linux at its core

Dan Cauchy, Executive Director of Automotive Grade Linux at the Linux Foundation said, “The AGL platform is Yocto-based, and for Jumping Jellyfish, we updated to Yocto’s first Long Term Support (LTS) release named Dunfell. This is significant as it means the Yocto Project will provide patches, fixes, and updates for an extended period of time, something that is essential for automotive systems, which have a longer life cycle than many other embedded Linux applications.”

Automotive Grade Linux is a collaborative open source project. It aims to bring together automakers, suppliers and technology companies to accelerate the development and adoption of a fully open software stack for the connected car. It has Linux at its core and it is developing an open platform from the ground up that can serve as the de facto industry standard to enable rapid development of new features and technologies.
