Changing the Way Cars Are Built and Driven
The connected, autonomous, and electric vehicles of today require a new approach to designing and developing the compute systems in cars. Wind River® Helix™ Virtualization Platform provides that approach, allowing you to consolidate all types of functions and different levels of safety criticality onto a single edge compute platform, today and into the future.
Challenges in Automotive
Traditional embedded software architectures and operating environments used in automotive need to evolve to meet the increasing needs of next-generation systems. While modern real-time operating systems can handle multi-core, safety-certified applications, in the connected and autonomous vehicle this won’t be enough. Only a heterogeneous operating environment will make it possible to shrink and use different types of hardware, create a flexible software architecture, and leverage different operating systems in a single system design.
How Helix Platform Can Help
Whether you’re most concerned with a real-time operating system (RTOS), Linux, safety, security, latency, determinism, criticality, existing platforms or applications that you’ve invested in, or a combination of these, Helix Platform gives you the flexibility of choice. It supports mixed-criticality OSes, providing you with the ability to run safety-critical and general-purpose applications side by side, while meeting the stringent requirements of ISO 26262 safety standards. And since new partitions can easily be added safely and securely, Helix Platform is built for the future.
