The transformation of the automotive industry is still ongoing and changes the way automakers, their partners, and customers create value and benefit from vehicles and transportation. Open source software (OSS) has become an integral part of development and helps fuel innovations in areas like AI, autonomous driving, and connected cars, which are driving growth and profitability. More and more automotive companies are not only using Open Source Software, they are actively contributing to and starting new Open Source Projects, which was not imaginable some years ago.
The Eclipse Foundation embraces the growing automotive open source activities and delivers an open, vendor-neutral governance framework, and IP cleaning processes for OEMs, Tier 1 and Tier 2 suppliers and players in the automotive ecosystem , who wish to collaborate on core capabilities below the value line to solve their technology needs.
The Automotive framework consists of:
- Automotive Working and Interest Groups
- openPASS - open Platform for Assessment of Safety Systems
- openMDM - Measured Data Management
- openMobility - Open Source Mobility Modelling and Simulation Technologies
- Software-defined Vehicle (SDV)
- Automotive Projects clustered in an Automotive Top Level Project
- Automotive Project Management Committee
The Eclipse Automotive Top-Level Project provides a space for open source projects to explore ideas and technologies addressing challenges in the automotive, mobility and transportation domain. It is the common goal of this project to provide tools and composable building blocks to empower the development of solutions for the mobility of the future.
