The AGL Software Defined Vehicle (SDV) Expert Group (SDV-EG) (formerly known as Virtualization and Containers Expert Group (EG-VIRT)) is responsible to design and implement virtualization solutions for AGL. Containers, Hypervisors (both based on Virtualization Extensions and TrustZone) and any other virtualization solution for x86/ARM are considered to be of interest for this Expert Group.  The AGL Unified Code Base (UCB)  supports the KVM hypervisor on the Renesas RCar M3 platform.
The SDV-VIRT expert group has been focused on defining the Virtualization platform architecture of AGL since 2018. One result of the work is this white paper
In 2020 the Expert Group began to focus on making VirtIO available for AGL and various open source hypervisors. 
In Feb 2023 the Containers and Mesh EG was merged into Virtualization EG and the new group was renamed the Software Defined Vehicle Expert Group. The legacy Container and Mesh Confluence page can be found here.
