This paper examines the feasibility of a distributed shared memory in an automotive environment with respect to communication and resource consumption. We briefly present the Plurix cluster operating system and its compiler demonstrating the advantages of a distributed shared memory concept for medium scale computation scenarios. We then apply the DSM concept to a specific use-case from the area of automotive embedded systems. A prototype system was implemented and shown to offer higher bandwidth and lower resource utilisation than conventionally layered designs.
