VIRTIO is open standard for device (e.g. GPU, display, mass storage, ...) virtualization. Automotive domain is adopting hypervisors to consolidate different functions. As this happens, ability to reuse existing SW will save time and effort in development and also allow more flexibility on hardware choices. Use of open standards makes the benefits even greater but these benefits can only be achieved if VIRTIO is extended to support all key automotive use cases. The work with the standards needs input from all stakeholder, OEMs, Tier-1s, SoC vendor, operating system vendors, ...

Cockpit is the domain where virtualizatfion has been used for a few years. Now is the time to standardize the key devices and make operating systems run fully virtualized on top of VIRTIO. This will allow savings for all stakeholders.
