Korean research institute Hyundai Autron, a subsidiary of Hyundai Motor Company, is partnering with US software developer Wind River to create a new connectivity platform to power autonomous vehicles (AVs).
The partnership will leverage each company’s experience to develop a best-in-class software platform for functional safety and Adaptive AUTOSAR for next-generation autonomous driving. As the platform becomes available, the two companies aim to collaborate on joint business developments with key OEMs and suppliers.
“Safety must always be a top priority,” said Marques McCammon, vice president of automotive at Wind River. “Together with Hyundai Autron, we’re providing the market with a safe and reliable software foundation to help car makers speed-up innovation and carve a path to future success.”
The companies will work closely on the development environment, safety certifications, shared intellectual property and deliverables. They will develop infrastructure software to serve as core technologies for next gen vehicle control, including advanced and high-performance compute, internal and external networks for vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2X), and secure over-the-air (OTA) update technology.
