Wind River teams with Renesas to advance autonomous driving applications
Wind River and Renesas Electronics are expanding their collaboration for connected, advanced driver assist systems, and autonomous driving programs, including plans to pre-validate Wind River software with the latest Renesas R-Car systems-on-chip. Software from the Wind River automotive portfolio is currently available on reference hardware for several existing Renesas SoCs. These include 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.
The Wind River automotive portfolio includes VxWorks, a high-performance RTOS tuned for both determinism and responsiveness with a proven track record in safety- and security-certified environments, making it an ideal solution for quickly commercializing ADAS and autonomous applications. Wind River Linux and other commercial-grade open source technologies, in combination with Wind River world-class technical support and maintenance, help customers stay up-to-date on the latest innovations. Wind River Edge Sync provides a software framework for remote over-the-air (OTA) updates and software lifecycle management, allowing rapid, safe, and secure updates to software and firmware throughout the vehicle lifecycle.
Under-the-hood SoCs play an important role in safety-oriented systems, such as autonomous driving and automated driving technologies. Renesas SoCs deliver high computer vision performance and AI processing at industry-leading low power levels, targeting automotive front cameras for use in mass-produced Level 3 (conditional automation) and Level 4 (high automation) autonomous vehicles. Part of the open, innovative, and trusted Renesas autonomy Platform for autonomous and automated driving, R-Car SoCs enable design flexibility for Tier 1 suppliers and auto manufacturers to map their own road from assisted to highly automated vehicles.
