Why Wind River for Automotive High Performance Compute Gateway

Why Wind River for Automotive High Performance Compute Gateway

By Ty Kim and Michel Chabroux There are 3 major trends in the automotive industry that demands higher performance compute in the car. The next generation vehicle requires CAE (Connectivity, Automation and Electrification). Consider the vehicle a kind of consumer device with the level of connectivity and security requirements of networking equipment as well as the functional safety and reliability…
5G, Autonomous Systems and the Revenge of Real-time and Determinism!

5G, Autonomous Systems and the Revenge of Real-time and Determinism!

By Michel Genard If you tend to look at the technology landscape through the lens of a cloud approach, you probably believe that infinite compute, storage and bandwidth are available to you thanks to the cloud.  In terms of scalability and elasticity, IT and most of the popular PaaS have largely demonstrated that this is possible -- just buy more…
Extrapolate and Grow: Autonomous Cars Can Learn Much from Aerospace and Others

Extrapolate and Grow: Autonomous Cars Can Learn Much from Aerospace and Others

By Marques McCammon The safe transportation of passengers, strict industry standards and regulations, autonomous controls…does this sound like the imminent future for automobiles? Actually, this could describe the aerospace industry today. Consider also the stringent demands telecommunications and  industrial/utilities companies must uphold when it comes to connectivity or reliability. So, it is any surprise that the automotive industry should look…

Update: Boost Safety, Security and Value

By Marques McCammon In a world constantly hungry for innovation, software is a living thing. No matter which software architecture is in use within a car, it will have to be updatable. The consumer experience is constantly evolving as well. As new apps and mobile capabilities enter the market, new cyberthreats emerge and must be responded to quickly and effectively.…
Reuse: Getting More and Going Further with Your Automotive Investment

Reuse: Getting More and Going Further with Your Automotive Investment

By Marques McCammon The automotive industry frequently reuses the physical chassis from one vehicle line to another, as a way to more broadly make available and share the underpinnings of various vehicles, and extend their investments. In the same way the industry has learned to reuse platforms from one model to the next, OEMs should now think about the reuse…

Wind River Automotive Technology a Contender for MWC GLOMO Awards

By Marques McCammon Connected and autonomous vehicle technologies are becoming more prevalent, and the rate of this innovation continues to rapidly accelerate for the automotive industry. These next generation vehicles will need to be connected and updateable in order to intelligently communicate with and safely navigate the world around it, continuously deliver new features and value over time, and be…
Consolidate: Innovating Automotive Software to Do More, with Less

Consolidate: Innovating Automotive Software to Do More, with Less

By Marques McCammon Work smarter, not harder. OEMs will increasingly need to do more with less. In any businesses model, but particularly in the auto industry, there is a constant focus on materials cost to preserve margins all while their products become more technologically sophisticated. This brings us to the next call to action in Wind River’s software strategy ACRUE…

Abstract: Ensuring Car Makers Can Scale and Evolve

By Marques McCammon Auto makers are under pressure to deliver more innovation at a faster pace than ever before, all the while maintaining high levels of safety. Typically, the introduction of new technologies means added complexity and greater cost. So, how can OEMs address evolving market needs and stay on time and budget? A key piece to the solution lies…
OpenCV on VxWorks enables intelligence at the edge

OpenCV on VxWorks enables intelligence at the edge

By Ka Kay Achacoso When a wind turbine collects sensor data about its surrounding environment, or an off-shore oil rig logs its readings into its records, the data can be analyzed for decision-making factors: Are the sudden changes in engine noise an indication of wear?  Are there any flying objects headed towards danger zones? Are the engine settings optimal for…
