Top-priority projects

Developing or Extending Hypervisor APIs

Challenge: Efficient realization of the move from networked system to consolidated systems

  • Extending / developing HV APIs e.g. virtio?  Potentials for cross-industry consolidation?
  • Understanding where Common Interface is feasible and realistic
  • For implementors who are interested:  Surveying and analyzing available HV choices.
  • Building the system stack with hypervisors and networked operating system instances

Graphics Sharing & Distributed HMI Compositing

Challenge: Consistent distributed HMI experience across distributed and diverse multi-ECU systems.

  • Top-level compositing across domains for the same physical display, with or without mixed safety levels
  • Diverse operating systems and HMI technologies
  • Distributed HMIs - Wayland/Waltham... other
  • + Graphics transfer encoding/technology

Determining Preferred Generic Communication Protocols

Challenge:  Too many choices, too much diversity, too much boiler-plate code, adaption layers, and incompatibility.

  • Survey and compare choices MQTT-style, WAMP, RESTful/Web technology and other messaging level protocols

  • Deep dive: SOME/IP - where is it applicable, and where is it not?

  • Discuss and reach consensus.
  • Industry preferred options: Say, among 10-15 choices now, find 3-5 recommended (and for which scenarios they are recommended)

User Input Distribution and Coordination

Challenge:  Multiple inputs, varying by car model, technology, etc. bound to very complex multi-modal user interactions.

  • Complexity in encoding rules from input to effect
  • Bounded latency guarantees, time identification
  • Modes / modality and dynamic rules

Comprehensive list of identified projects

  • Hypervisor solutions & low-level API standardization (virtio etc.)
  • Generic Communication Protocol – for cross domain GNU-Linux / AUTOSAR / Android / other
  • Including  Safe network protocol (End-2-end, etc.)
  • Graphics Transfer/Sharing
  • Including Distributed HMI Compositing
  • Input Handling Coordination
  • System Health/Debugging/Analysis (incl. Log & Trace)
  • Distributed System Lifecycle / Node State
  • Network Traffic routing & accounting (priority/bandwidth/payment…)
  • (Distributed) Audio management
  • Distributed User / Login / Profile management


  • No labels

  1. I think it make sense to keep "Graphics Sharing & Distributed HMI Compositing" and "User Input Distribution and Coordination" topics very close together or maybe even putting the "User Input Distribution and Coordination" as sub point of the Graphics Sharing & Distributed HMI Compositing
