Enabling mixed-criticality virtualization in automotive, IoT edge, embedded systems
Virtual Open Systems provides virtualization solutions for mixed-critical systems. VOSySmonitor is a key company product component to execute concurrently, on a single hardware platform, functionalities of different functional safety levels, compliant to ISO-26262 certification.
VOSySmonitor is the software foundation component of the company's VOSySmcs and VOSySIoT software products, which are meant respectively for Automotive and IoT edge market segments. VOSySmonitor guarantees, when compared to traditional type-1 hypervisors, by its architecture design the best isolation of safety critical functionalities.
VOSySmcs consists of a full fledged software stack to support modern generation of car virtual cockpits where the concurrent execution of In-Vehicle Infotainment (IVI), Instrument Digital Cluster and Body Control Module (BCM) can be consolidated on a single hardware platform, thus simplifying complexity, maintenance and costs of heterogeneous Electronic Component Units (ECU). The open nature of the VOSySmcs architecture breaks traditional vendor lock-in practices while unchaining innovation.
VOSySIoT is an end to end IoT edge software stack, which is intended to protect and isolate the collection and processing of critical data. Industrial IoT, health monitoring, smart home, building, city, green energy, are market segments which benefit from VOSySIoT mixed-critical software product.
