Canonical is delighted to announce that it is joining the Scalable Open Architecture for Embedded Edge (SOAFEE) Special Interest Group to contribute towards a safe, secure and software-defined automotive future.
“As the demand for computing from car to cloud is rapidly growing, the automotive industry is looking towards standardisation to reduce development complexities and spur innovation. The SOAFEE initiative is perfectly positioned to address these challenges“, said Gordan Markus, Director Silicon Alliances at Canonical.
“Canonical is excited to bring subject-matter expertise in managing complex open-source software at scale, and empowering automotive companies to shape their software-defined vehicle strategies around safe and secure open-source solutions. Contributing with its unique insights in cloud-native computing, Canonical will be working with SOAFEE initiative members to unlock agile innovation and improve time-to-market across the automotive industry.”
Canonical in automotive
The future of automotive will highly rely on cloud-native approaches. By helping companies leverage these solutions, Canonical is paving the way for software-defined vehicles. Ubuntu is one of the most trusted operating systems today, allowing for speed of development and deployment.
For use cases that require AI/ML computations and fast response time, Canonical provides real-time Ubuntu with a Linux kernel that integrates PREEMPT-RT guaranteeing low-latency response time.
With 10 years+ of security maintenance for Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVEs), Canonical is in a unique position to provide best-in-class software in a regular and reliable manner while leveraging state of the art over-the-air (OTA) updates.
