Wind River and Xilinx join forces for automated driving platform

1 min read

Wind River is collaborating with Xilinx to provide carmakers with a flexible, high-performance platform for delivering safe and secure automated vehicles.

The two companies will integrate Xilinx’s versal adaptive compute acceleration platform (ACAP) with Wind River’s automotive software to develop a comprehensive automated driving platform.

It is hoped this will provide a foundation that rapidly enables and scales critical functions for automated driving applications. The platform will also provide customers with a path to certification up to the highest levels of international safety standards, such as ISO 26262 ASIL-D.

“The autonomous vehicle market must take into consideration a variety of challenges, such as maintaining the highest levels of safety and matching the business needs of automakers,” said Willard Tu, senior director of Automotive at Xilinx. “By teaming up with Wind River, we are creating new approaches and offerings that address a myriad of obstacles to help automakers accelerate their path to production using Xilinx adaptive technology.”

Matt Jones, general manager of Automotive at Wind River, added, “For autonomy to reach mass scale, the industry must begin to rationalise its investments. Spending millions to build inflexible discrete solutions must give way to platforms that leverage industry standards and can scale over multiple product generations. By joining forces with Xilinx, we can help carmakers not only address complex demands around the need for increased compute, AI, safety, and security but do it in a way that works for their business.”
