Wind River, a wholly owned subsidiary of Intel, will be demonstrating its portfolio of automotive technologies at the 2015 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS). Wind River’s showcase highlights its advanced software solutions that enable automotive innovation for future generations of connected vehicles.
Wind River demonstrations at NAIAS include the following:
- Wind River Platform for Infotainment – a GENIVI 5.0-compliant, Linux Yocto Project-based in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) software platform that helps OEM and Tier 1 customers quickly overcome the complexity involved with creating connected, rich IVI systems.
- Customizable Android-based IVI platform with advanced connectivity and multimedia capabilities such as hotspot/tethering and connection to cloud-based services, HD video reproduction, and multi-touch display.
- Smartphone integration capabilities
- Electronic control unit (ECU) consolidation and digital cluster display that highlights cost, space, weight, and power savings but also reduced complexity through shifting integration efforts from hardware to software.
Furthermore, Wind River’s global automotive software development and integration organization spans five continents and employs a vast assemblage of automotive focused engineers and technologists. The group includes a dedicated software development, system integration, and applications teams, as well as program management office team dedicated to developing and best practices for rapid development and deployment of high quality software solutions.
Michael Krutz, senior vice president of automotive solutions said,
“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.”
Located in Hall E at the Cobo Center in Detroit, the Technology Showcase at NAIAS is open January 12-15 for press and industry previews. The Technology Showcase is designed to highlight technologies that will impact connectivity, automation and efficiency in the next generations of vehicles.
