Automotive software starter kit is available on open source
The automotive division of Luxoft has launched Pelux 1.0, a base development platform designed to provide the building blocks for automotive software development projects. It is available on open source.
The software starter kit was developed from Luxoft’s Pelux software suite which is used by automotive manufacturers and tier one suppliers to develop converged automotive systems for infotainment, autonomous driving, body control and communication.
Pelux 1.0 leverages open source projects such as Linux, Yocto and GENIVI to provide a base development platform. The platform is complemented with project blueprints and documentation for a development environment in embedded Linux device creation, tailored specifically to automotive needs.
According to Dr Michael Dinkel, director of digital cockpit, Luxoft, Pelux 1.0 helps to demystify automotive software by leveraging open source technologies and that creating a development platform project, “with a scaffold already around it, is just a click away”.
Luxoft Automotive’s Pelux team leverages open source, agile ways of working and smart integration concepts enabling carmakers to build next generation in-vehicle infotainment systems and accelerate human machine interface (HMI) development projects.
