Bosch as well as many other industrial companies use GNU/Linux as an operating system for a large portion of the devices they produce in particular in the IoT context. While Linux distributions have done a great job to compile and maintain a consistent set of packages to provide the software stack for these devices it still requires huge extra efforts to fulfill the increasing requirements over the entire device life cycle that is currently done internally for each device class. As it is based on open source the question is if a significant part of this work could also be done in an open source way with all the positive effects that we can see in the community. There are first approaches already in the open, like Apertis (https://www.apertis.org/) or the CIP project (https://www.cip-project.org). In the talk, we want to motivate the problem and describe collaboration potential.
