This week, three Collaborans will be in Tokyo, Japan to take part in the AGL All Member Meeting. Daniel Stone, George Kiagiadakis, and Guy Lunardi will be in attendance, to discuss Wayland and the future of IVI Window Management, as well as look at the latest upstream work around the PipeWire framework and how it can benefit the automotive industry. You can find the details below for both their presentations.
The Automotive Grade Linux (AGL) All Member Meeting takes place bi-annually and brings the AGL community together to learn about the latest developments, share best practices and collaborate to drive rapid innovation across the industry.
If you plan on attending, please come say hello!
Wayland's ivi-shell has become the standard for window management within IVI usecases, used in AGL upstream as well as in many products and other automotive platforms. The IVI shell development has been held well by its current maintainers, however its roots in an X11-centric window management system are clear, and a new approach may be necessary in the age of fluid interactive HMI. How output remoting should be supported is another key consideration. This session will outline some of the challenges IVI shell set out to solve, some of the usecases AGL now needs solved, and a proposed roadmap to enabling fluid, beautiful, and reliable, products based on the AGL platform and Wayland upstream.
In this session, George is going to give an update of the work that has been going on upstream around the PipeWire framework, explain the concepts that PipeWire brings, the problems that it solves and showcase how it can help the automotive industry and AGL move forward.
