Wind River announced collaboration plans with Hyundai Autron to develop a software framework for safe, automated and autonomous driving. The software will help teams rapidly develop, build and deploy highly safe, secure and reliable vehicle systems for connected and autonomous cars.
Using IP from both companies, the new platform will provide a framework for integrating advanced compute features found in connected and autonomous driving applications such as advanced sensing, Ethernet based communication and artificial intelligence applications.
“The rise of autonomous driving is creating a variety of new safety considerations for car makers,” said Chang Jae Ho, senior vice president of Automotive Fusion Control Group at Hyundai Autron. "By aligning our research and development capabilities with Wind River’s experience in deploying safety domain software, we are able to deliver highly advanced, reliable and secure automobile control solutions to help our customers quickly and flexibly respond to changing market trends.”
The new platform will run on top of the VxWorks safety certified real-time operating system (RTOS) and leverage advanced system partitioning via hypervisor technology. This will allow automakers to take software that is essential to safety critical functions like vehicle controls, actuation and sensing and place it alongside less critical functions like infotainment and telemetry onto the same hardware architecture.
