The implementation of the software defined vehicle with autonomous driving, always connected and run-time customizable functions, demands an innovative software architecture that can easily scale and drastically reduce software time to market. For this reason, virtualization is a key enabler technology for self-driving and connected vehicles. The Automotive Grade Linux (AGL) Virtualization Expert Group (EG-VIRT) targets to add virtualization and consolidation support to AGL; its role is to define the right architecture which combines security, high performance and certification.

Virtual Open Systems is leading the EG-VIRT working group, which has produced an AGL white paper entitled "The AGL Software Defined Car Architecture". During this talk at the Automotive Linux Summit 2018 in Tokyo, the EG-VIRT white paper has been officially presented by Virtual Open Systems to Linux Foundation members and virtualization open source community.

More in particular, the white paper defines how self-driving and connected vehicles trends can be addressed within AGL, through the use of the virtualization technology, described in details along with benefits, challenges, use cases and requirements.

Important contributions in this document are: the role of the EG-VIRT working group in the AGL community as virtualization integrator (aiming at supporting different hypervisor technologies); the definition of the AGL virtualized software defined vehicle architecture, built upon heterogeneous execution environments communicating each other through communication buses; finally, information about the next steps for AGL open source automotive virtualization developments.
