Software from the Wind River automotive portfolio is currently available on reference hardware for several existing Renesas SoCs. These include those for high-end, next-generation systems targeting vision and image processing applications relevant for autonomous driving, safety support systems, and also SoCs targeting in-vehicle infotainment. Connected and autonomous cars must intelligently interpret the world around them, and this is pushing software complexity to rapidly increase within the automobile. In order to achieve advanced automotive systems, software and hardware must work together seamlessly. “By leveraging pre-validated solutions that are ready for deployment, car makers can quickly achieve their goals for delivering innovation and accelerating their time-to-market”, said Marques McCammon, vice president of Automotive at Wind River.
The Wind River automotive portfolio includes the VxWorks real-time operating system tuned for both determinism and responsiveness with a proven track record in safety- and security-certified environments, which makes it a preferred candidate for commercializing ADAS and autonomous applications. Wind River Linux and other commercial-grade open source technologies, in combination with Wind River world-class technical support and maintenance, help customers stay up-to-date on the latest innovations. Wind River Edge Sync provides a software framework for remote over-the-air (OTA) updates and software lifecycle management, allowing rapid, safe, and secure updates to software and firmware throughout the vehicle lifecycle.
Under-the-hood SoCs play an important role in safety-oriented systems, such as autonomous driving and automated driving technologies. Renesas SoCs provide computer vision and AI processing at low power levels, targeting automotive front cameras for use in mass-produced Level 3 (conditional automation) and Level 4 (high automation) autonomous vehicles. Part of the open Renesas autonomy Platform for autonomous and automated driving, R-Car SoCs enable design flexibility for Tier 1 suppliers and auto manufacturers to map their own road from assisted to highly automated vehicles.
