60min: Bringing Qt to Automotive

A story of bringing open source to a closed source industry

Event_large

The automotive industry is a traditional industry. Software is written according to tens of thousands of requirements, waterfall is norm and the relationship between suppliers and purchasing is very far from cooperative. Bringing open source and Qt to this industry has been a challenge on all levels - licensing, marketing as well as technologically. This is the tale of GENIVI, Qt Automotive Suite and more.

You will learn about how the industry works. What hurdles we keep on encountering and how we have handled them.

You will also learn about the open source movement within automotive. What is dysfunctional and what works and how to get the ball moving.

Finally, we will touch on the Qt Automotive Suite, what it is and how it unleashes the potential of modern software development for automotive.

Many of these experiences are applicable in more mature, traditional industries. Hopefully this can be a starting point for getting Qt and more open source software into more industrial verticals.
