[Semibug] Automotive Grade Linux

Someone has pointed me to Automotive Grade Linux
(https://www.automotivelinux.org/), saying that it "looks super cool".

It seems mostly to be marketing for automobile industry stakeholders
rather than anything interesting; the software itself is, as far as
I can tell, an operating system that includes Linux, GNU utilities,
systemd, and a bespoke application development framework.

It has compile-time dependencies on cmake, npm (for AGL applications),
and other recent inventions, and it apparently is intended to have at
least read access to the steering wheel, speedometer, and tachometer.

I find this to be an interesting choice of base system. Can someone
point me to any examples of better operating systems being used in cars?
