Enabling a hybrid economy in smart mobility
It was 1969, open standards were beginning to be introduced in what today we call the Internet. There are over 1 million unique open source software projects where people have come together to work for a better future. In the meantime, a second movement started: open source hardware. Just like open platforms have shaped the web, open source hardware has already taken over the small to medium electronics development. In October we announced OSVehicle’s TABBY, the first open source framework for the creation of vehicles. How will it change the assumptions in the automotive industry? Why is “open and distributed” the new business model, that will inevitably overcome the old centralized approach? The world is changing and for the first time it’s truly in our own hands. We’ll cover how the automotive industry is evolving and understand where we can play an active role in it.
