Virtual ECUs in Production Vehicles? ETAS Lightweight Hypervisor provides flexibility, efficiency, and security

Agile software development is a growing trend in the automotive industry. The idea is that customers should be able to upgrade and update software-controlled vehicle functions without any safety or security concerns. This presupposes a strict separation between individual software functions. For hardware, however, the trend is moving in the opposite direction, with more and more functions running on central ECUs. To resolve this contradiction, Bosch Automotive Electronics is using the new Lightweight Hypervisor from ETAS.
