Hello,
As Marine requirement is very very close of any IoT (very) long term Linux requirement with high level of security and application isolation, I thought that this webinar from the Linux Fundation might be of interest to some of you...

The Marine Grade Linux project by IoT.bzh addresses smart ship provides a customized flavor of AGL that addresses marine specific requirements. For signaling, NMEA2000, CanOpen, Ethercat and Modbus were added. Cloud connectivity is designed to handle random connectivity with a balance of 4/5G and satellite data link. Some core marine services as nautical charts, safe routing, or radar are still under development and should be added in the near future. Last but not least, a 30 years old ship is pretty common and maintenance/update on 15 years is required.

This presentation exposes the outcome of the three marine projects IoT.bzh is currently developing for this industry. It starts exposing gaps in business models, then exposes some of the technical specificities (signaling, SOTA, LTS, …). Finally it introduces redpesk@sea the ready-to-use “Marine Grade Linux” version that IoT.bzh will propose as Christmas gift to the maritime open-source community.
