Explore Our Working Groups

Eclipse Working Groups allow organizations to combine the best practices of open source development with a set of services required for open innovation, enabling organizations to foster industry collaborations. Eclipse Working Groups also provide a vendor-neutral governance structure that allows organizations to freely collaborate on new technology development.

Each individual Eclipse Working Group has a charter, a website and a Working Group Participation agreement (WGPA).

Capella IC

The Capella Industry Consortium is dedicated to developing the ecosystem around the Capella project with vendor-neutral and open governance. Capella is an open Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) solution which offers methodological guidance, intuitive model editing, and viewing capabilities for Systems, Software, and Hardware Architects. The Capella IC provides its members with a place to foster collaborations, share investment and best practices and leverage open innovation to co-develop new MBSE capabilities.

openGENESIS

Before deployment onto public roads, artificial intelligence (AI) must be proven safe and roadworthy. However, our current understanding of AI approval and certification is limited, especially in relation to machine learning algorithms. The openGENESIS Working Group aims to foster, support and provide knowledge, methods, and tools for the assessment of AI used in autonomous driving applications. Industry, research, and regulation executives come together to develop common criteria for the quality of AI by leveraging knowledge among openGENESIS members and sharing research results in an open access domain.
