At the 2015 NAIAS (North American International Auto Show), which takes place from 12th to 25th January in Detroit, MI, Wind River will be demonstrating its portfolio of automotive technologies.
At the show the company will showcase its Platform for Infotainment, a GENIVI 5.0-compliant, Linux Yocto Project-based In-Vehicle Infotainment (IVI) software platform that allows OEM and Tier 1 customers to overcome the complexity involved with creating connected, rich IVI systems. A customisable Android-based IVI platform with advanced connectivity and multimedia capabilities will also be demonstrated by Wind River at the event. Capabilities include hotspot/tethering and connection to cloud-based services, HD video reproduction, and multi-touch display. The company will also showcase full smartphone integration capabilities for iOS, Android and Windows-based devices, as well as electronic control unit consolidation and digital cluster display that highlights cost, space, weight and power savings.
Movements such as the connected vehicle, autonomous driving, and the IoT have resulted in new automotive market demands. To meet these demands, the role of software in automotive systems has become increasingly important.
Wind River will be located at the NAIAS Technology Showcase, in Hall E of the Cobo Center. The showcase, which opens on 12th January and closes on 15th, will highlight technologies that will impact connectivity, automation and efficiency in next-gen vehicles.
“Wind River has been a key contributor to the developments of the connected car for over a decade, and we’re committed to continue to grow our suite of advanced software solutions this year,” commented Michael Krutz, Senior Vice President, Automotive Solutions, Wind River. “As we look at the challenges around safety and security emerging with the connected vehicle, Wind River is able to take its knowledge of mission-critical software, from space missions like the Mars Rover or commercial aviation aircrafts where failure is not an option, and apply them to the automobile to help car makers ensure safety while they increase value for the consumer.”
“Few companies have Wind River’s unique mix of wide-ranging automotive industry and embedded software experience and proven technology portfolio. From advanced IVI to safe and secure ADAS technologies to autonomous driving, Wind River’s extensive knowledge of design, software development, integration, lifecycle management services and its world-class support helps automotive OEMs and their Tier 1 suppliers innovate and better manage the highly detailed requirements and certifications, complex software integration, and intricate project planning specific to the automotive industry,” added Krutz.
