Open source infotainment system
Company: Robert Bosch Car Multimedia GmbH
What: Bosch adopts Linux to speed infotainment development
Innovation: Most suppliers write time-consuming custom software for automakers' infotainment systems. Bosch used the open-source Linux operating system, which has some ready-to-use software and no licensing fees. This opens system development for others and cuts development time and cost.
