The automotive industry is relying on digital technologies, shifting its traditional manufacturing model from hardware to software. Innovation is taking shape with such advances as autonomous drive, Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), digital cockpits and vehicle electrification.

The industry is also realizing vehicles are becoming mobile tech devices. Cars stream music from the cloud, allow hands-free phone calls, provide real-time traffic information, monitor speed and track fuel efficiency.

To remain competitive, automakers and their related counterparts are embracing open source development. Automotive Grade Linux (AGL) — a collaborative open source project — is a key example. It is bringing together automakers, suppliers and technology companies to accelerate the development and adoption of the connected car.

Knowing  the open source community will deliver these advances, industry frontrunners including Daimler, Ford, Honda, Hyundai and Toyota, are demonstrating their commitment to both open source and patent non-aggression by joining Open Invention Network.
