The open source project has also added five new members, which include BlackRidge Technology, Capgemini, Insignary, Nippon Seiki and Total.
Automotive Grade Linux (AGL) Friday announced the release of the AGL platform, Unified Code Base (UCB) 7.0, which features open source voice recognition/speech APIs.
AGL is an open source project at the Linux Foundation developing a shared software platform for in-vehicle technology.
The project also added five new members, which include BlackRidge Technology, Capgemini, Insignary, Nippon Seiki, and Total.
“As part of our UCB 7.0 release, we are releasing new speech recognition APIs that allow application providers to easily integrate speech capabilities within their apps,” said Dan Cauchy, Executive Director of Automotive Grade Linux at the Linux Foundation.
AGL Unified Code Base
Developed through a joint effort by dozens of member companies, the AGL Unified Code Base (UCB) is an open source software platform that can serve as the de facto industry standard for infotainment, telematics and instrument cluster applications. The AGL UCB 7.0 includes an operating system, middleware and application framework.
“Sharing a single software platform across the industry reduces fragmentation and accelerates time-to-market by encouraging the growth of a global ecosystem of developers and application providers that can build a product once and have it work for multiple automakers,” the project team noted in an official statement.
Leveraging the power and strength of Linux at its core, AGL is uniting automakers and technology companies to develop an open platform that offers OEMs complete control of the user experience.
