Intel Drives Innovation in the Autonomous Driving and Industrial Markets

By Intel's Riccardo Mariani At Embedded World 2017, Intel Shows How Scalability and Security Help Customers Take Advantage of Growth Opportunities Over the last half-century, the embedded systems market has developed at a phenomenal rate to become one of the most innovative fields in technology. The Internet of Things (IoT) helps make everything around us smarter: from cars to coffee…
Toshiba Selects Wind River Simics to Accelerate  Automotive SoC Development

Toshiba Selects Wind River Simics to Accelerate Automotive SoC Development

By Ross Dickson As the car becomes increasingly connected and autonomous, the importance of software will play a bigger role than ever. In the software-defined automobile of the near future, richer and more sophisticated capabilities also brings greater risks as the sheer volume of software content needed within vehicle systems will skyrocket, challenging design teams as they try to pinpoint…
How Connected Vehicle Technology Will Make Driving Safer Around the World

How Connected Vehicle Technology Will Make Driving Safer Around the World

By Marques McCammon Technological advances have already made driving safer with features like forward collision warning and automatic emergency braking. Looking ahead, perhaps by the end of the decade, new connected vehicle technology may allow millions of cars, trucks, buses and trains to talk wirelessly to each other, the roadway, traffic lights and nearby buildings, to address hazards drivers can’t…

Creating the Next Generation Automotive Cockpit

By Dan Noal The automotive landscape is undergoing a software revolution. Consumers are coming to expect a connected lifestyle in every aspect of their lives including inside their car. The importance of software is growing as it is becoming the key to creating unique driving experiences. Wind River Helix Cockpit is a Linux based offering targeting in-vehicle infotainment (IVI), telematics,…
Automotive networks can benefit from security layers

Automotive networks can benefit from security layers

By Tim Radzykewycz Last year, at the Black Hat conference in Las Vegas, Charlie Miller and Chris Valasek reported their security research on a Jeep Cherokee.  They were able to remotely break into the system and take control of steering, brakes, and other safety critical systems on the vehicle, as well as systems not normally considered safety critical such as…

From Mars to Earth, Wind River Is Applying Three Decades of Experience to Thwart Vehicle Hacking

By Marques McCammon Imagine you’re driving a two-ton SUV that’s traveling 70 miles-per-hour on the highway when suddenly, beyond your control, the air-conditioner fan starts blasting, the radio blares, windshield wipers whoosh back-and-forth and then the engine shuts down just as you approach a steep incline. That’s what happened last summer to Wired's Andy Greenberg when cyber security researchers remotely commandeered…

Wind River Helix Chassis, IoT, and the Connected Car

By Marques McCammon The automotive industry was born ­– and thrived – in the industrial age. Now automakers are poised to become leaders in the digital age as they build increasingly intelligent, connected vehicles for running advanced driver assist systems (ADAS), dynamic cockpit information systems, and, ultimately, autonomous vehicles capabilities. To help auto manufacturers make the most of their opportunities…

Simulink Processor-in-the-Loop with Simics-in-the-Loop

By Jakob Engblom There are many ways to use simulation in model-based design (MBD) of control systems. In a typical MBD workflow, it is common to model a controller (essentially the electronic “brain” of the system) along with the plant it is designed to control ("plant" is the common term for a model of the physical system and its environment).…
