Wind River 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 and autonomous driving systems. The safety certification process is currently underway.
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 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.
AUTOSAR standards frameworks, both the Classic Platform and Adaptive Platform, provide a standardization of basic system functions and functional interfaces. Given the demanding compute needs of connected and autonomous cars, AUTOSAR Adaptive–based platforms are designed for service-oriented architecture and intended for high-performance computing electronic control units (ECUs). For example, AUTOSAR Adaptive systems could provide a standardized software framework for sensor fusion data processing, over-the-air (OTA) updates, and vehicle-to-infrastructure or IoT features.
