Lake) are now supported and validated.
The ACRN project looks back on the astounding progress it has made in 2019, from first release to production….
A demo of “Industrial IoT Edge to Cloud” develops an end-to-end scenario using many innovative open-source projects. The use case presented is an industrial edge node running real-time and Artificial Intelligence (AI) workloads on a single platform.
This demo featured a number of open-source projects and technologies relevant to the IoT and Edge domains. This included Project ACRNTM (IoT hypervisor), Zephyr ProjetTM (RTOS), and Intel® Optimization for TensorFlow* (AI), Docker (Container OS-virtualization). Through real-life use cases and hypothetical scenarios, the demo showed how combining diverse projects enables new functionalities such as advanced workload consolidation….

- Platform-level coordinated graceful shutdown (S5) for User VMs.
Have you ever driven home after work and wanted to stay in your car to relax a little more instead of going inside of the house?
Because of the rapid advancement in technology, our cars are no longer simply a means of transportation, but are now the “second living space” in our lives. Our expectation is now for cars to become mobile living rooms where we can socialize and entertain. The essential In-Vehicle Infotainment (IVI) systems need to support more complex operating systems,..
We are pleased to announce the release of ACRN™ Hypervisor version 1.2 which introduces a number of new features.
What’s New in Release Version 1.2
- Support for OVMF as virtual boot loader for Service VM to launch Clearlinux, VxWorks or Windows. Secure boot is also supported
- Support for Kata containers.
- Windows as a Guest (WaaG): USB host (xHCI) mediator
- Virtualization support for Always Running Timer (ART)
- Various bug fixes and enhancements

Big changes are coming to the world of hypervisors. The open source Project ACRN is a device hypervisor targeting Edge and IoT devices. ACRN supports multiple Operating Systems (OSes) with diverse software stacks and a variety of workloads to run on the same platform enabling significant workload consolidation. Its small footprint means that it can be used in resource constrained environments. As Functional Safety (FuSa) hypervisors are being increasingly relied on to handle multiple workloads with speed and security,..
The 1st Open Source IoT Projects Seminar was held on June 11-12 in Shanghai hosted at the Intel Zizhu Office. This is a new event and the first time that we have run a community meeting focused on promoting open source projects in the IoT arena. Themed ‘Open Source Drives IoT, From Device to Edge’, and sponsored in collaboration with the ACRN, AliOS, Celadon, Clear Linux, ROS 2, StarlingX and Zephyr projects,..
