Civil Infrastructure Platform Announces New UltraTerm Supported Version Kernel to Evolve Automation, Machine Learning, and AI

The Linux Foundation Japan Civil Infrastructure Platform introduces new ultra long-term support version kernel to automate, machine learning, and evolve AI CIP’s new SLTS kernel extends support architecture and also supports ARM 64 ………………………………………………………………………………… The Linux Foundation project Civil Infrastructure Platform announced the Extremely Long Supported Version (SLTS) kernel on February 25 (US time). The new kernel extends architecture support for the 64-bit Arm (R) Cortex, allowing developers to use them in a variety of use cases such as automation, machine learning, artificial intelligence and so on.
February 25, 2019 San Francisco – Civil Infrastructure Platform (CIP that enables long-term management of infrastructure systems through basic layers of industrial grade open source software components, tools, methods /) The project today announced the super long-term support version (SLTS) kernel. This new kernel extends architecture support for 64-bit Arm (R) Cortex, allowing developers to use them in a variety of use cases, such as automation, machine learning, and artificial intelligence. With the growing demand for reliability, connectivity, and rich functionality, the amount of software required to implement and maintain social infrastructure systems has reached an unprecedented level. These systems are the foundation of modern society and play roles to monitor, control and operate the infrastructure of communities and industries around the world everywhere. For this reason there are special challenges to meeting safety, security, and reliability requirements, and updating must be done on a continuous basis. The aim of CIP, the Linux Foundation project, is to accelerate the implementation of Linux-based social infrastructure systems with industrial grade software and universal OS, to utilize the existing open source infrastructure and knowledge, to implement the reference layer reference implementation To establish de facto standards, and to contribute and influence upstream projects related to industry needs. Mr. Yoshiyuki Kobayashi, chairman of CIP’s technical steering committee and Toshiba’s open source technology director, said, ” / 02 / civil – infrastructure – platform – announces – new – super – long – term – support – kernel – that – advances – automation – machine – learning – and – artificial – intelligence /. “Our safe everyday is made up of technical systems, usually they are Linux based systems and need to be maintained for over a decade, it is extremely important to provide a social infrastructure system smoothly. And the SLTS CIP kernel helps to extend its sustainability to decades.The kernel is also compatible with Arm64, so it can be applied to various applications supporting the future of our life is.” Collaboration and development across industries Real-time Linux is an important element of industrial grade systems. In addition to real-time management and data, industrial systems require safety, security and reliability. Therefore, CIP will collaborate with the Linux Foundation’s new project Enabling Linux in Safety Applications (ELISA ELISA is an open source project that creates common tools and processes to support building and certifying Linux-based safety-critical applications and systems. Failure to safety-critical applications and systems can result in loss of life, serious physical damage, environmental damage, etc. ELISA, SIL 2 Linux MP ( Project and Real-Time Linux ( Project Results It makes it easy to build safety critical systems using Linux (robot device, medical, smart factory, transportation, automatic driving etc). Kate Stewart, senior director of Linux Foundation’s strategic program, says: “Long-term maintenance and support is indispensable for the safety and reliability required for embedded systems that run in industrial and infrastructure environments.It is necessary for ELISA to implement a wide range of Linux Foundation We are looking forward to working with the community and working with CIP and its members on process establishment and tool creation to support authentication of Linux-based safety critical applications. ” CIP also launched two new working groups to help manage certain aspects of the development process. The Security working group ( works with various security standards to help address cyber security issues. The focus of the work group led by Renesas Electronics is that suppliers certify the use of the IEC 62443-4-x standard. This standard is one of the most important security specifications for industrial products. By certifying on various standards available, they keep the CIP platform up-to-date and create a well-defined authentication process to minimize supplier development time and cost . The Software Update working group provides a robust software update tool that integrates and enhances industry grade open source base layer. The working group led by Toshiba will focus on the software architecture, integrate the selected software into the Linux image build tool used by CIP Core, and implement the software update reference board. CIP is being promoted by innovative industry leaders worldwide including Codethink, Cybertrust, Hitachi, Moxa, Plat’Home Home, Renesas Electronics, Siemens, Toshiba and other openings such as Linux Kernel LTS, Debian Project, KernelCI We are working closely with the source project. Many members are planning to support the SLTS CIP kernel. For example, Renesas Electronics announced that the RZ / G2 MPU will be reference hardware for Arm64 corresponding to CIP Linux package certification / release ( kernel).
