As vehicle software becomes more complex (modern automobiles require over 10 million lines of code), integrating different systems and ensuring they provide reliable performance becomes more and more challenging. Adding to the difficulty, the automotive industry uses vehicle bus, a specialized internal communications network, to interconnect each component, and uses less common networking protocols like controller area network (CAN) to meet requirements specific to the automotive world. Companies must rely on proven integration and quality release processes to manage these demands.
New automotive requirements are challenging the conventional automotive design process. Proprietary software solutions may not be the best option for integrating multiple automotive platforms with several bus standards and gateways. Leveraging open source innovations and standards can alleviate the burden. And with Wind River® as a trusted partner with a proven track record, you can revolutionize your design process.
