Obtaining VirtIO-enabled virtualized AGL KK reference demo distribution.

In the past year, one of the main efforts in AGL Virtualization Expert Group was enabling VirtIO technology in AGL, which is a standard device virtualization framework. As a result, AGL KK gained the ability to run on top of VirtIO-based Automotive Virtual Platforms. Virt EG member company OpenSynergy has prepared a public COQOS Hypervisor SDK evaluation distribution that runs on top of AGL Reference Hardware and contains VirtIO-enabled AGL virtual machine. In this session, an overview of the distribution architecture will be presented along with details on how to obtain, build and run it.

Mikhail Golubev is Senior Software Engineer at OpenSynergy. As a virtualization technical lead at OpenSynergy he is mainly focused on VIRTIO-based virtualization development and deployment.

Time: Wednesday March 17, 2021 10:00 – 10:40 JST

Software Define Architecture in a car: Using VIRTIO to change the way the car software is developed

Discussion about How the concepts of software defined architecture can be used in a car. And How VIRTIO fits to this? Software defined architecture is coming from cloud but it can with some modifications be used in the car also especially in the future when the new technology makes it easier to combine SoCs and peripherals in more flexible way. AGL is adopting VIRTIO that can be used more widely with the concepts of the software defined architecture to form a new kind of car platform and ecosystem for both software and hardware.

Tero Salminen is Senior Director Product, Virtualization at OpenSynergy. As the head of the Virtualization team he drives the development of OpenSynergy’s standards-based virtualization platform COQOS Hypervisor SDK for the automotive domain. He has more than 20 years of experience from building platforms for telecom, phones and cars.
