Towards Sustainable Systems with the Civil Infrastructure Platform - Jan Kiszka, Siemens AG

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Linux has become one of the most important software components to run civil infrastructure systems such as power plants, water distributions, Traffic Controls or healthcare systems. However, there are still gaps to fill regarding domain-specific requirements such as safety, reliability or real-time. At the same time, rapid advances in machine-to-machine connectivity are driving changes in industrial system architectures and raise the importance of long-term support for security.

The Linux Foundation established "Civil Infrastructure Platform (CIP)" as a new collaborative project. CIP aims at developing a super long-term supported open source "base layer" of industrial grade software. This
base layer consists of software building blocks that meet requirements of industrial and civil infrastructure systems. In this talk, we will explain technical details and focuses of this project.
