Information technologies and infotainment are at the heart of today’s automotive innovations. Over the last two decades, numerous technologies and communication busses have been integrated in vehicles, making today’s vehicle infrastructures complex to understand and fastidious to implement. The MOST Linux Driver (MLD) is an open source Linux® driver that encapsulates heterogeneous physical layers into Linux’s standard mechanisms. By combining a centralized network stack with MLD, system and application programmers can use specific and complex infotainment busses such as MOST without prior knowledge about them. The combination of the centralized network stack and MOST Linux Driver is a sort of hardware abstraction layer providing application engineers with Linux high-level interfaces such as character devices and Ethernet interfaces that can be immediately used by any application.
