In recent years, automotive software has become very complex due to the growing number of features that must be integrated in passenger car devices. Key drivers of this increased complexity include:

  • Convergence of consumer electronics and automotive devices
  • Enhanced capabilities to improve vehicle safety, including heads-up displays and car-to-car communication systems
  • Exponential cost increases for new in-vehicle device development

Wind River draws from its expertise and solutions for such adjacent markets as mobile handsets, digital video and aerospace & defense to design innovative solutions to these fundamental changes in the automotive market. In the automotive supply chain, Wind River acts as a software supplier, providing solutions to all major tier-one suppliers and original equipment manufacturers, including Bosch, Siemens VDO Automotive AG, BMW, Daimler AG, Delphi Corporation, Ford Motor Company, Toyota and General Motors Corporation. In addition, the Vehicle Infrastructure Integration Consortium (VII-C) recently chose Wind River's Linux as a runtime and development tool to develop an onboard equipment (OBE) prototype. The VII-C is an initiative funded by the U.S. Department of Transportation aiming to improve vehicle safety and enable standard-based vehicle-to-vehicle communication. All of the major OEMs such as BMW, DaimlerChrysler, Ford Motor Company, and General Motors Corporation are a part of the consortium.

Wind River provides two choices for runtime technologies that serve as the basis for its software platform—its proprietary VxWorks real-time operating system (RTOS) or an open source Linux solution specifically enhanced for automotive devices. In addition, the company offers its Workbench development suite—a comprehensive set of development tools, compilers and on-chip debuggers—pre-integrated with its runtime technologies. Further, Wind River maintains strategic partnerships with suppliers, middleware vendors, silicon vendors and service providers to ensure customers receive complete, pre-integrated and standards-based solutions that will immediately impact their development lifecycle.
