Linux has become one of the most important software to run the Civil Infrastructure Systems such as power plants, water distribution, traffic control and healthcare. However, existing software platforms are not yet industrial grade (in addressing safety, reliability and other requirements for infrastructure). At the same time, rapid advances in machine-to-machine connectivity are driving change in industrial system architectures.
The Linux Foundation establishes "Civil Infrastructure Platform(CIP)" as a new collaborative project. CIP aims to develop a super long-term supported open source "base layer" of industrial grade software. This base layer enables the use of software building blocks that meet requirements of industrial and civil infrastructure projects. In this talk, we will explain the technical details and focuses of this project.
