18.00 – Registration

18.30 – Introduction by Andreas Prossel and Gilles Fernandez

18.45 – Qt/QML by Bassem Mohsen
Qt empowers developers to create stunning user experience and ease the integration toward the system backend. For frontend QML enables developers to composite beautiful UI screens by combining UI elements in a storytelling way. Qt also supports backend developers to mix QML with C++ components to fit the backend logic or Integration toward micro services through IPC. While Qt Automotive suite complements the solution by providing multi-process and multi-app architecture through Qt Wayland Compositor and Qt Application Manager..

19.15 – Coffee break

19.45 – PELUX by Gordan Markus
As the automotive companies shift their focus from bending metal to bending bits, the traditional in-vehicle ECU (Electronic Controll Unit) architecture is undergoing drastic changes. A transition from traditional single purpose ECUs to converged systems, capable of rendering visual content on several displays, while communicating with nearby intelligent road infrastructure or even navigating the vehicle through traffic, is becoming a reality. The PELUX Suite was designed in order to enable the development of such converged automotive systems. PELUX leverages well known open source projects such as Linux, Yocto and GENIVI in order to provide a base development platform. The base development platform is complemented with project blueprints and documentation, that has one main goal in mind - to provide a leading development experience in embedded Linux device creation, tailored to automotive needs.

20.15 – Open Source on Wheels by Johan Thelin
In the last few years, a seismic shift has taken place in the automotive infotainment industry, going from proprietary solutions to open source platforms and collaboration. In this talk, we discuss some of the key challenges and their technical solutions, but also what lays ahead – how can we learn from automotive and bring open source collaboration to other industries. This talk will take you from electrical engineering to stunning user interfaces packaged in one of the most expensive consumer electronics devices on the market – cars.

20.30 – Afterparty

About the speakers

Johan Thelin works as a system architect at Luxoft. He runs foss-gbg and foss-north and has authored The Foundations of Qt Development, The QML Book and was the Qt Champion of 2016. He has worked almost 20 years with Qt and more than 10 years with embedded Linux. A dedicated Debian user, he still has fond memories of installing his first boxed RedHat 5.1 back in the later 90’s.

Gordan Markus During his career, Gordan has been working in several industries, but most notably tinkering with IoT devices and developing critical communication systems, before joining the automotive sector. As a part of his daily work, he strives to contribute to open source projects that are extensively used in the automotive industry, like the Yocto project, OpenEmbedded framework, Linux Kernel, GENIVI and Qt Automotive Suite. Currently he is an active member of the AUTOSAR Consortium developing the Adaptive Platform.

Bassem Mohsen Bassem works as developer at Luxoft. He dedicated his career for developing user interfaces for automotive industry. Always use Qt and QML for UI development from fast prototyping, experimenting with designers around eye-candy animations to final ready-to-production pixel perfect screens. His daily work also involves integration of components like parking assist cameras, connected smart devices video streams and other embedded Linux platform components.
