Wind River brings autonomy to vehicles with its next-gen ADAS solutions

Published: April 21, 2015 | Detroit, MI

Wind River has introduced Automotive Profile for VxWorks, AUTOSAR-compliant software to help customers develop ISO 26262 certifiable automotive safety-critical applications such as advanced driver assist systems (ADAS) to piloted and autonomous driving.


In the age of the Internet of Things (IoT), automotive software and systems are becoming more complex and connectivity is expected to be ubiquitous. As software-driven applications become more prevalent in vehicles, keeping automotive systems secure and tamper-proof is important for vehicle and occupant safety. For example, through partitioning, companies can consolidate multiple vehicle controls with different levels of safety criticality onto a single hardware platform while maintaining their time- and space-based separation and isolation. This introduces the potential for reductions in cost and weight in vehicles, and may help mitigate risk of attack or interference to other software components all without compromising vehicle safety or functional performance.

Automotive Profile for VxWorks enriches the latest version of VxWorks® real-time operating system (RTOS) to help address the growing needs for safe, secure, and certifiable software-driven ADAS and autonomous driving applications.
