When it comes to ensuring the development of can't-fail systems, Wind River® is a leader with a proven track record of success. With nearly 40 years of experience in embedded software, 20-plus years of experience in safety certification software products, and a portfolio of products deployed across more than 2 billion devices, Wind River delivers safety and security when it counts most.
Functional safety is that part of the overall safety of a system or piece of equipment that depends on its operating correctly in response to inputs—safely managing operator errors, hardware failures, and changes in environment. It's about saving human lives.
Wind River has extensive experience meeting the safety-critical standards of crucial sectors, including flight safety (DO-178C DAL A), industrial (IEC 61508), transportation (EN 50126), and automotive (ISO 26262).
In the new era of autonomy and connectivity where it is increasingly important to identify and implement safety-related systems, Wind River continues to lead the way. Our software runs the "can't fail" computing systems of the most important modern critical infrastructure, including aerospace and defense, rail, automobiles, medical devices, robotics, industrial control systems, smart factories, and more.
