SYSGO: Siemens chooses PikeOS Hypervisor for electric cars

Siemens has chosen the PikeOS Hypervisor for its new electronics and software platform for electric cars. As seen in aviation technology, standardized hardware and software modules provide the basis for a unified computing architecture that can replace function-specific controller modules (ECUs). The PikeOS Hypervisor serves as the backbone of the software architecture. As a virtualization platform with hard real-time characteristics, PikeOS enables a predefined set of functions according to the plug-and-play principle. The new platform provides plenty of scope for individual product bundling. The first customer to make use of these advantages is Deutsche Post subsidiary StreetScooter from Aachen.

Siemens CT NTF RACE is developing the innovative electronic architecture for electric cars made by StreetScooter – a 100-percent subsidiary of Deutsche Post, which produces electric vehicles for delivery on behalf of its parent company, as well as for other customers. The unified platform consists of standardized hardware and the PikeOS Hypervisor, which enables an individual set of software functions.

The PikeOS Hypervisor is used in a number of different domains with safety requirements, and is certified in accordance with the required safety standards for aerospace, rail, automotive and industrial automation. Its strict partitioning allows individual and secure integration of various software functions in the electric car, ranging from infotainment to safety-critical assistance systems. Siemens is preparing an electronics platform using the PikeOS Hypervisor that can be quickly, inexpensively and reliably extended and is prepared for autonomous driving and integration into an intelligent transport infrastructure.

As part of the RACE (Reliable Automation and Control Environment) research project, Siemens' central research has chosen the PikeOS Hypervisor as a software platform to significantly simplify the complex electronic architecture in the car, which requires a high degree of safety.
