TELEMATICS DETROIT 2014 – Wind River®, a world leader in delivering software for intelligent connected systems, announced that it is working with TTTech to develop safety-related electronic control units (ECUs) based on networked multi-core system-on-chips (SoCs) for advanced automotive applications, such as autonomous driving. Wind River contributes as a key software partner and provides its VxWorks® real-time operating system (RTOS) – conforming to the ISO 26262 safety standard – for the new ECU platform.
TTTech selected VxWorks to host several safety-related software components side by side with non-safety related components in the overall system architecture. The ECU is designed for use in advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), including autonomous driving and other automotive video camera–based vision applications. The ECU can be connected to multiple cameras and features deterministic Ethernet networking capabilities, including TTTech’s TTEthernet® switch technology supporting 100 Mbit/s as well as 1 Gbit/s.
TTTech is a leading supplier of networking solutions based on time-triggered technology and modular safety platforms, and its technologies are used in various industries such as automotive, aerospace, off-highway, energy production, railway and industrial process automation. For example, TTTech has worked on the new ADAS platform for Audi for innovative functions such as piloted driving and parking.
“The role of software is growing as automotive systems get more sophisticated and as the Internet of Things demands new levels of connectivity and intelligence. Automotive companies must add innovation while maintaining the necessary levels of safety. The issue of safety is especially paramount as capabilities such as autonomous driving become a reality,” said Georg Doll, vice president and general manager of worldwide automotive solutions at Wind River. “Wind River and TTTech are working together to help car manufacturers get to market faster with high quality and innovative offerings. Our innovative software technology coupled with world-class services and global support help customers better manage the highly detailed requirements, complicated software integration, and intricate project planning associated with this industry.”
