Next-Generation Automotive Linux

In recent years, we have witnessed transformational moments of the automotive industry with the advent of new electric and autonomous vehicles which are designed to give unique benefits over gasoline-consuming and hand-on-the-wheel counterparts. It can be expected that human drivers will no longer be required in vehicles within 5 or 10 years.

Bring Embedded Linux expertise to the Automotive market

At MontaVita, we have set our standards from initiatives: 

  • Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS)
  • Regulated On-call and Telematics systems for Safety
  • IVI Graphics and Phone-like HMI
  • In-car Bus Consolidation and Automotive Ethernet
  • Power Management

MontaVista has been engaged in the Automotive market since its inception and pioneering in some of the very initial Automotive Linux designs. Together with our partners, we have successfully launched a large number of platforms that are currently in large production in many top brand OEMs.


As a member of the Automotive Grade Linux (AGL) community, we also have a front-row seat to Linux development in the field and are contributing our technology and expertise to this domain.

Our Carrier-Grade expertise in the Telecommunications market gives us a huge advantage in the Automotive space as it has comparable requirements for security, stability and performance. In particular, the Automotive market combines CGL-like quality and robustness requirements with an extensive SW stack across all levels. We are also aware of the fact that Automotive products typically last more than 10 years as our commercial Linux platforms provide such long-term availability and deployment.

We mostly deal in the Automotive space with embedded Linux designs around 3 major types of equipment:

  1. IVI systems, focusing on enabling a robust base platform
  2. Instrument Clusters and similar graphics-enabled embedded HW
  3. Telematics nodes and in-car routers and gateway with emergency call facilities and advanced security and networking capabilities
