The Linux Foundation, a non profit organisation founded with the vision of speeding up the growth of the Linux OS platform, announced on Monday that it was going to hold the first ever Automotive Linux Summit.
The event, as revealed by the organisation, will take place this year on November 28 at the Pacifico Yokohama in Yokohama, Japan.
The summit will be primarily aimed at the automotive industry, as well as the ever expanding cross-industry ecosystem which is likely to play a crucial role in the future of mobility solution. According to the Linux Foundation, the Automotive Linux Summit will facilitate the pioneers in the Linux developer community, the automotive industry and the mobility ecosystem with a perfect platform for interaction, as well as for exchanging new, game-changing ideas.
Not just that, the attendees of the summit will also be given a deep insight into how Linux and other open source software have the potential to play a crucial role in vehicle on-board systems, vehicle to vehicle and vehicle to infrastructure communication and other such areas.
"By hosting the first ever Automotive Linux Summit, we can help bring together the brightest minds from these communities to maximize the opportunity for Linux in this marketplace," Jim Zemlin, executive director at The Linux Foundation said in a statement.
