Linux.cn: CIP: Continuing the Light of Linux

By | In the News

Today, modern civil infrastructure is everywhere – power plants, radar systems, traffic lights, dams and weather systems. These infrastructure projects have been around for decades, and these facilities will continue to provide longer service, so safety and longevity are critical.

And many of these systems are powered by Linux, which gives technology providers more control over these issues. However, if each provider is building their own solution, this can lead to fragmentation and rework. therefore,Civil infrastructure platformCivil Infrastructure PlatformThe most important goal of (CIP) is to create an open source infrastructure layer for industrial facilities such as embedded controllers or gateway devices.

Instrumentation & Control: Futureproof edge computing applications

By | In the News

It can be a challenge to find an IIoT gateway that easily connects geographically dispersed devices to the cloud, especially in outdoor or rugged environments. Moxa’s UC series industrial computers are highly integrated Arm-based Linux platforms that include Moxa Industrial Linux. To address the need for an extended lifecycle for products in applications such as renewable energy monitoring, intelligent transportation systems, production line monitoring, and oil and gas artificial lift monitoring, the UC series are ruggedised and come with 10-year Linux support. Recognized for their reliable performance in large-scale deployments worldwide, these IIoT gateways are a trusted choice for all IIoT applications.

Info Tech: Opening Up New Ways to Build and Secure Civil Infrastructure

By | In the News

Even as The Linux Foundation’s projects continue to grow and mature, enterprises and government agencies and organizations struggle with the question of the sustainability when adopting open source technologies.

While Red Hat and similar companies have long made it possible for even the largest initiatives to be built and managed, through certification programs, professional services, and ongoing support businesses, city planners and others responsible for multi-million and even multi-billion-dollar projects are cautious if not conservative when it comes to too much open source (vs. locked down vendor provided solutions).

The Civil Infrastructure Platform (CIP) Project “aims to create an interoperable open source software platform that is secure, reliable and sustainable for more than 10 years” according to a news release issued out of Tokyo on June 20th.

CCID Net: The big coffee on LC3 discusses the scenery that Linux should not miss

By | In the News

When Linus Torvalds learned the need to write the Minix clone system Linux, he probably couldn’t think of a revolution in the computer world. Today, Linux has touched almost every corner of the world. Especially in some special fields, such as earthquake simulation, weather simulation, large-scale animation design of Hollywood, 3D rendering, etc., basically Linux systems have dominated the world.

Linux.com: Free Webinar on Community-Driven Governance for Open Source Projects

By | In the News

Topics such as licensing and governance are complex but nonetheless critical considerations for open source projects. And, understanding and implementing the requirements in a strategic way are key to a project’s long-term health and success. In an upcoming webinar — “Governance Models of Community-Driven Open Source Projects” — The Linux Foundation’s Scott Nicholas will examine various approaches for structuring open source projects with these requirements in mind.

This free, hour-long webinar (at 10:00 am Pacific, May 30, 2018) will address some of the differences that exist in community-driven governance and will explore various case studies.

Linux.com: Civil Infrastructure Platform: Industrial Grade Open Source Base-Layer – Yoshitake Kobayashi

By | In the News

“The Civil Infrastructure Platform is the most conservative of The Linux Foundation projects,” began Yoshitake Kobayashi at the recent Embedded Linux Conference in Portland. Yet, if any eyelids started fluttering shut in anticipation of an afternoon nap, they quickly opened when he added: “It may also be the most important to the future of civilization.”

The Linux Foundation launched the Civil Infrastructure Platform (CIP) project in April 2016 to develop base layer, open source industrial-grade software for civil infrastructure projects, starting with a 10-year Super Long-Term Support (SLTS) Linux kernel built around the LTS kernel. CIP expects to add other similarly reusable software building blocks that meet the safety and reliability requirements of industrial and civil infrastructure.
