Connected and intelligent vehicles hold great promise, but the increasing complexities of developing, integrating, and managing numerous software systems are limiting innovation and profitability for auto manufacturers. Wind River® brings together software, technologies, tools, and services to help manufacturers unify, simplify, and maintain software systems of next-generation connected cars. For more about the future of the automobile, watch our documentary series.
35+ YEARS OF SAFETY, 20 YEARS OF CERTIFICATION
In the automotive industry, nothing is more critical than safety. The increasing role of software in next-generation vehicles presents opportunities for enhancing safety—such as new safe driving functions already in production—but also important challenges. How will automakers ensure that the connected cars of tomorrow are safe?
For nearly 40 years, Wind River has provided mission-critical software solutions across multiple markets where failure is not an option: aerospace and defense, medical, industrial, networking, and automotive. And with 20 years of that experience in safety certification programs, our technology has been put to the test.
IS YOUR CAR’S SECURITY AIRTIGHT?
In recent years, the complexity of on-board electronics and software within the vehicle has dramatically increased—along with the likelihood for software bugs, security breaches, IP theft, and compromised safety. The potential impact of these vulnerabilities reaches beyond single vehicles and vehicle owners to entire fleets of vehicles and OEM brand value.
To stay secure, software needs to be updated regularly. How can you ensure updates are conducted efficiently and securely? Learn how Wind River Edge Sync enables secure over-the-air updates for software and data management.
WHAT DO CARS AND AIRCRAFT HAVE IN COMMON?
The automotive industry's transition from an ownership model to a usage-based model—driven by the "sharing economy," autonomous driving, and mobility-as-a-service platforms—is forcing automakers to make extensive changes in architectures and the business supply chain.
Future automobile electronics systems will closely resemble commercial aircraft systems, based on open standards that are derived from a wide range of transportation industry solutions. Instead of designing a completely new system along with the technology and requirements needed to power it, what if automakers could rely on transferred knowledge from the aircraft industry?
