VxWorks for Industrial Solution Brief
Global competition makes it critical for industrial system manufacturers to refresh their products, some of which are 15–20 years old, to make them more flexible and easier to upgrade and patch through software updates than legacy, fixed hardware systems. They also need software developers who know the latest programming and tools and can continuously improve product security, safety, and reliability. Add to this list the need to enable easy software updates, remain price competitive, and, in some cases, minimize the time and cost of certifying systems.
Success requires agility and innovation, and this is why Wind River® invests heavily in its VxWorks® real-time operating system (RTOS). VxWorks delivers hard real-time performance, determinism, and low latency along with the scalability, security, and safety required for industrial applications, such as robotics, control automation, manufacturing and transportation systems. It is the world’s most widely used commercial RTOS, with more than 30 years in the field and billions of deployments.
