Red Hat And General Motors Collaborate

Red Hat and General Motors announced a collaboration to help advance software-defined vehicles at the edge.

The companies expect to expand an ecosystem of innovation around the Red Hat In-Vehicle Operating System, which provides a functional-safety certified Linux operating system foundation intended for the ongoing evolution of GM’s Ultifi software platform.

The collaboration between Red Hat and GM is a significant moment in the convergence of the transportation and technology industries, with Red Hat’s cloud-native, enterprise-grade open source operating system accelerating the development of GM’s software-defined vehicle programs following Ultifi’s initial launch. This will enable both companies to offer customers more valuable features responsibly in a fraction of the typical development time.

With the integration of the In-Vehicle Operating System into the Ultifi platform, GM and Red Hat look to achieve:

  • reduced costs from consolidation and reuse of software across a common platform;
  • an improved development cycle for faster time-to-market with new customer features and software improvements;
  • a continuous functional safety certification for systems related to safety applications;
  • the creation of new services, business models and revenue streams.
