Hyundai Autron and Wind River have signed a partnership to develop an autonomous driving and connectivity software platform to power next-generation automobiles.

Hyundai Autron, a Hyundai Motor Group company, is a leading research and development company specializing in electronic control software and automotive semiconductors. US-based Wind River is the global leader in embedded and Internet of Things (IoT) software.

The partnership will leverage each company’s specialties and experiences to develop a best-in-class software platform for functional safety and Adaptive AUTOSAR for next-generation autonomous driving and connectivity for the global market.

As the platform becomes available, the two companies aim to collaborate on joint business developments with key OEMs and suppliers.

The companies will work closely on the development environment, functional safety certifications, share 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), as well as secure over-the-air (OTA) update technology.

Creating a safe and reliable software foundation

Since 2012, Hyundai Autron has worked with Hyundai, Kia Motors, Hyundai Mobis and other global leaders to develop the ‘Hyundai Motor Standard Software Platform’ based on classic AUTOSAR standard. The company has been further developing this technology to deliver future intelligent vehicle platforms, including those developed with Wind River.

“With Hyundai Autron and Wind River working closely together, our safety-focused Adaptive AUTOSAR platform can be a core technology to help drive future intelligent automobiles,” said Dae Heung Moon, CEO of Hyundai Autron.

Wind River is a long-standing market leader for both embedded real-time operating system (RTOS) and commercial Linux. It delivers software with high levels of safety, security and reliability

“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 their innovation and carve a path to future success,” he added.
