OpenSynergy has announced today the release of an enhanced version of their automotive reference platform for virtual Android™ (based on Trout) with Android 12 MVP 1.0 ready for series production. Containing technology from Google, the reference platform highlights the integration of the Virtual I/O (VIRTIO) framework into Android Automotive OS (AAOS). More importantly, the reference platform now offers a complete vehicle-ready solution due to the fact that OpenSynergy has specified and implemented devices necessary for automotive use cases. This allows Android to run fully virtualized on any solution containing the newest VIRTIO device implementation. Additionally, VIRTIO enables support for multiple System on Chip(SoC)s, and provides higher flexibility to change hardware. .
