06-12-2018 | Wind River technology | Automotive Technologies

Wind River is expanding their collaboration for connected, ADAS, and autonomous driving programs, including plans to pre-validate the company's software with the latest Renesas R-Car SoCs. Software from their automotive portfolio is currently offered on reference hardware for several existing Renesas SoCs. These incorporate those for high-end, next-generation systems targeting vision and image processing applications relevant for autonomous driving, safety support systems, and also SoCs targeting in-vehicle infotainment.

?“Connected and autonomous cars must intelligently interpret the world around them, and this is pushing software complexity to rapidly increase within the automobile. In order to achieve advanced automotive systems, software and hardware must work together seamlessly,” said Marques McCammon, vice president of Automotive at Wind River. “By leveraging pre-validated solutions that are ready for deployment, car makers can quickly achieve their goals for delivering innovation and accelerating their time-to-market. We look forward to continuing our work with leaders such as Renesas, as well as further strengthening our efforts with silicon partners across the ecosystem.”

“With the move toward a more connected and autonomous future and the growing sophistication of automotive systems, increased collaboration across the ecosystem is essential,” said Masayasu Yoshida, senior director of the Automotive Technical Customer Engagement Division at Renesas. “Together, Wind River and Renesas can combine their expertise to dramatically improve development efficiencies for car makers to better meet the evolving demands of the automotive industry.”
