The Linux Foundation's Automotive Grade Linux project is celebrating its first big-name user, after Toyota said it will employ the OS in the 2018 Camry model it will sell in the United States.

Automotive Grade Linux (AGL) is an effort to create a cut of Linux capable of being dropped into cars with minimal integration hassles, so that auto-makers and manufacturers of in-car-electronics can all build to a common standard.

The Camry will use AGL in its infotainment system, which is where the project currently focuses its efforts.

In future the project's participants want the OS to handle just about everything inside a car, including the instrument cluster, a heads-up-display, telematics services, advanced driver assistance systems and even autonomous driving.
