Today’s digital era creates a unique opportunity for auto manufacturers to provide higher levels of safety, explore new use cases, and differentiate themselves with personalized driving experiences.  Leading automakers are evolving quickly to accommodate changing customer preferences and emerging technologies. Vehicle manufacturers can accelerate innovation with open source, Linux®-based technologies from Red Hat.

Red Hat supports vehicle manufacturers’ goals of getting to market faster and adopting new business models through:

  • Accelerating transformation with an open source, enterprise-grade, Linux-based in-vehicle platform that supports safety- and non-safety-related applications. 
  • Enabling the connected vehicle through digital prototyping, virtual testing, and developing services in support of advanced driver assistance and autonomous systems.
  • Building expansive ecosystems and a common approach to standards through the power of the open source community that meets changing automotive business needs.
  • Supporting the vehicle’s digital life cycle with an enterprise-grade, long-term support model.

BMW, Volkswagen and Audi are some of the real-world customer success stories.
