Wind River selected by Hyundai Autron to develop safety platform for autonomous vehicles

Wind River announced collaboration plans with Hyundai Autron to develop a software framework for safe, automated and autonomous driving leveraging intellectual property from Wind River’s automotive software portfolio and the HYUNDAI AUTRON ODIN product offering. Wind River software can 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 new platform will run on top of the VxWorks safety certified real-time operating system and leverage advanced system partitioning via hypervisor technology. This partitioning allows 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. As a result, this also reduces the systems’ dependence on any particular set of hardware. The net outcome is a software system with mixed criticality functions that is both more flexible and cost effective for the automaker without jeopardizing safety or security.
