London June 1st, 2011: Open source automotive infotainment development specialists, Pelagicore has adopted Canonical’s Ubuntu Core to build new embedded experiences based on broad architecture and open source technologies for in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) systems.

Ubuntu Core is a sub-set of Ubuntu technologies suited for the next generation of Internet-enabled embedded devices such as IVI systems, set top boxes, smart TV and digital devices for the home. It has been developed to take advantage of the growing consumer devices market and to offer developers greater choice of platforms. Ubuntu Core’s neutral platform supports Intel and ARM equally, offering excellent cross-architecture support for an almost limitless choice in the types of devices that can be developed.

The IVI industry is growing at an exceptional rate, according to In-Stat Research, over 35 million in-vehicle infotainment systems are expected to ship in 2015, as automotive manufacturers seek competitive advantage. Pelagicore’s adoption of Ubuntu Core will help it serve industry demand by offering fully customisable software frameworks, key components, and now middleware, which help accelerate the implementation of infotainment systems.

Mikael Söderberg, CTO at Pelagicore says; “The automotive industry needs to keep pace with changing customer demand for connectivity and multimedia experiences on the go. Pelagicore’s relationship with Canonical further enables us to develop innovative, scalable, next generation in-vehicle infotainment devices and systems for our customers. Pelagicore’s customers and industry OEMs have immediate requirements for Ubuntu Core.”

Chris Kenyon, VP OEM Services comments; “To meet growing demand, Canonical is developing an ecosystem around Ubuntu Core to connect great technologies and providers in the automotive, device and digital home space. Pelagicore among a number of partners joining Canonical in the development of this ecosystem, and will bring significant value by integrating its in-vehicle infotainment middleware with Ubuntu Core as well as provide its services and experience to users of Ubuntu Core.”
