ALAMEDA, CA — Oct. 15, 2019 — Wind River®, a leader in delivering software for the intelligent edge, today announced that certification authority TÜV SÜD has endorsed an ISO 26262 ASIL-D certification program for its AUTOSAR Adaptive software platform. The software provides a foundation for a next-generation advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) and autonomous driving systems. The safety certification process is currently underway.
“Wind River has worked with TÜV SÜD Rail GmbH to review its ISO 26262 ASIL-D certification program for its AUTOSAR Adaptive software platform,” said Günter Greil, business line manager – generic safety components at TÜV SÜD Rail. “TÜV SÜD Rail assessed the preliminary software safety concept for the software, as well as the Wind River plans and standards to be used, and has determined them to be suitable to fulfill the requirements in accordance to ASIL D ISO 26262:2018.”
“To achieve higher levels of autonomy, we must have a clear view for delivering on functional safety, both at a component and at a system level. Wind River has built its business on how to support customers in safety-critical industries, and managing the complexities associated with certification processes is a core competency of our team,” said Matt Jones, vice president of Systems Architecture and Automotive at Wind River. “It’s not isolated to automotive; we are drawing from decades of experience in safety-critical industries and applying our proven expertise to this certification program. Our work to certify this software platform is a continuation of our legacy of providing comprehensive safety and certification expertise.”
The certification-ready software platform is architected to support the highest levels of safety and leverage the power of the underlying operating environments, such as the VxWorks® real-time operating system (RTOS) or Wind River Linux, to provide a flexible and extensible services-oriented architecture for advanced connected and autonomous vehicle applications. This AUTOSAR Adaptive software platform offers portability of applications and algorithms across any target environment, allowing compute to be placed where it is most productive for the performance of the overall system. The platform will also deliver a path to the component and system-level safety necessary to deliver confidence at higher levels of vehicle autonomy.
