We present a prototype for virtual edge computing based on embedded Linux PCs running the OpenC2X Vehicle to Everything (V2X) communications platform. The road traffic mobility of the cars is simulated by SUMO but all cars are represented by software instances running on the embedded system. This allows to move on to real-world testing by connecting the embedded systems to GPS and the car's onboard bus instead of the simulated mobility. Our virtual edge system supports setting up so-called vehicular micro clouds, i.e., groups of cars, which in turn can provide virtual edge computing services to other cars or nearby users. For this demo, we connected one of the simulated cars to a driving simulator so that it can be controlled, i.e., driven, by a user. The interaction with the system is completed by a 3D engine that visualizes the cars and the micro cloud information.
