Open Source Summit Japan (Yokohama, Japan + Virtual)

December 5, 2022 - December 6, 2022

Open Source Summit Japan, hosted on December 5-6 in Yokohama, Japan and virtually for attendees around the world, is the premier event for open source developers, technologists, and community leaders to collaborate, share information, solve problems and gain knowledge, furthering open source innovation and ensuring a sustainable open source ecosystem. It is the gathering place for open source code and community contributors. Register here.

Open Source Summit is a conference umbrella, composed of a collection of events covering the most important technologies, topics, and issues affecting open source today. At Open Source Summit Japan, those events include: LinuxCon, CloudOpen, Automotive Linux Summit, Open AI + Data Forum, OSPOCON, CONTAINERCON, Critical Software Summit, Community Leadership Conference, Emerging OS Forum and Embedded IoT Summit. 

ELISA will be represented on-site at the conference in several sessions including:

Monday, December 5 at 11-11:40 am: Elements Towards Functional Safety Use Cases with Linux in Automotive – Philipp Ahmann, Product Manager at Robert Bosch GmbH and Chair of the ELISA Project Technical Steering Committee

Linux is common sense in Automotive; for infotainment, display clusters or gateways. Centralization of embedded control units increase the demand of mastering complexity of large vehicle computers. Functional safety becomes more and more important. As part of instrument clusters, warning signs (so called tell tales) are an ideal entry point to address safety criticality in Automotive use cases. Their demands to the operating system help to explain the way forward towards more complex use cases from the domain of e.g. driver assistance.

This talk will describe elements needed to enable Linux in safety critical automotive use cases based on the tell tale use case as addressed within the Linux Foundation’s ELISA project. It shows similarities and differences to other use cases like park distance control or surround view and supports the the Automotive Grade Linux instrument cluster. By setting the use case into a wider system context of a centralized vehicle computer architecture, it allows adopters a step-by-step approach to enable Linux in safety critical applications and increase the responsibility of Linux in smaller chunks. An overview of the activities within the other ELISA project working groups and their relation to the automotive working group completes the talk. Add this to your schedule here.

Tuesday, December 6 at 10-10:20 am: Keynote – Kate Stewart, Vice President of Dependable Embedded Systems at the Linux Foundation

Kate’s keynote will feature ELISA.

Wednesday, December 7 at 9 am – 12:30 pm: ELISA Mini-Summit (pre-registration required)

Enabling Linux in Safety Applications (ELISA) aims to create a shared set of tools and processes to help companies build and certify Linux-based safety-critical applications and systems whose failure could result in the loss of human life, significant property or environmental damage.

9:00 – 10:00 am – ELISA Project Overview
Join the ELISA mini summit for an overview of the ELISA project, the activities of the various working groups (WGs) and how the WGs interact and work together to tackle the challenges in advancing open source in safety-critical systems and bridge the gap between functional safety and Linux kernel development velocity.

10:00 – 10:15 am – Break (refreshments will be served)

10:15 – 11:00 am – Systems Working Group deep-dive
Take a deeper look into the Systems WG launched this year. Many products across various industries share the same architectural elements, including container technologies, RTOS requirements, or virtualization. This demands safety analysis at the system level. Understand why and how this WG is exploring the implications of using Linux in those mixed criticality systems by creating a reference system for further analysis. Learn also about collaboration with other open source communities such as AGL, Xen, and SPDX.

11:00 – 11:45 am – Automotive Working Group
Usage of Linux is common sense in many Automotive use cases such as infotainment, display clusters, or gateways. This session will describe elements needed to enable Linux in safety critical automotive use cases starting with warning signs of instrument clusters, also known as tell tales, and going forward the evolutionary path towards more complex use cases such as driver assistance. By framing use cases in a wider system context of a centralized vehicle computer architecture, it allows adopters a step-by-step approach to enable Linux in safety critical applications and to increase the responsibility of Linux in smaller chunks.

11:45am – 12:00 pm Open Discussions
Stick around for open discussions and Q&As with the speakers. The speakers will provide pointers to onboard those who are interested in collaborating to further the work of the ELISA project.

How to Register: Pre-registration is required, open to in-person attendees, and there is a $10 registration fee. To register for the ELISA Mini Summit, add it to your Open Source Summit Japan registration.
