OpenSynergy introduced today the company’s new automotive reference platform for virtual Android™ 11 (based on Trout). Working with Google and Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., the reference platform features the integration of the Virtual I/O (VIRTIO) framework into Android Automotive OS, which allows Android to run on any hypervisor supporting the upcoming VIRTIO devices and any system on chip (SoC).
The reference platform and the usage of virtualized Android Automotive OS were showcased over the last year in several promotional events. Now, customers can access it and develop their specific applications on it. The released reference platform is intended only for research and pre-development purposes and not for series production. Customers can procure the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ Automotive Development Platform (ADP) through Qualcomm Technologies’ distribution channels. The reference platform software is now available at OpenSynergy.
