A community for safety certification on multi-core processors

A community for safety certification on multi-core processors
Last week, Tim Skutt of Wind River, participated in one of a series of collaborative workshops on Multi-Core Processor (MCP) Certification at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base hosted by the US Army. Wait, was that a typo? No. The US Army Combat Capability Development Command (CCDC) Aviation and Missile Centre was indeed the host for a workshop at a US Air Force base.   Guest blog written by Tim Skutt, Wind River.

Autonomous cars can learn much from aerospace and others

Autonomous cars can learn much from aerospace and others
The safe transportation of passengers, strict industry standards and regulations, autonomous controls…does this sound like the imminent future for automobiles? Actually, this could describe the aerospace industry today. Consider also the stringent demands telecommunications and industrial/utilities companies must uphold when it comes to connectivity or reliability. Guest blog written by Marques McCammon, Wind River.

Update: boost safety, security and value

Update: boost safety, security and value
In a world constantly hungry for innovation, software is a living thing. No matter which software architecture is in use within a car, it will have to be updatable. The consumer experience is constantly evolving as well. As new apps and mobile capabilities enter the market, new cyberthreats emerge and must be responded to quickly and effectively.

Getting more and going further with your automotive investment

Getting more and going further with your automotive investment
The automotive industry frequently reuses the physical chassis from one vehicle line to another, as a way to more broadly make available and share the underpinnings of various vehicles, and extend their investments. In the same way the industry has learned to reuse platforms from one model to the next, OEMs should now think about the reuse of software and hardware architectures.  Guest blog written by Marques McCammon, Wind River.

Helping Collins Aerospace future-proof avionics systems

Helping Collins Aerospace future-proof avionics systems
Future airspace will be filled with drones, commercial aircraft, helicopters, and more. Several prototypes are currently targeting urban air mobility solutions such as air taxis, or revolutionary aircraft models, such as next-generation commercial supersonic aircraft. Add to this autonomous swarm technologies, such as manned-unmanned teaming, and systems for future vertical lift and it’s clear that the technology wave coming to any aerospace manufacturer today can easily become overwhelming. Guest blog from Wind River.

The first image of a black hole

The first image of a black hole
This week, the world had a first view of the ground-breaking discoveries brought forth by Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) – an international scientific collaboration aiming to create a virtual Earth-sized telescope. The images of the event horizon of a black hole were constructed from data gathered by observatories all over the globe. Guest article written by Andreea Volosincu, Wind River.

Improving ATM security

Improving ATM security
While the security of Automated Teller Machines is not necessarily ‘life critical’ as with many other industries (think transportation, medical and some industrial applications), there are certainly financial and identity theft risks associated with these devices. There is much data on the web regarding the various ATM attack vectors, the estimated number of annual hacks and the cost to the industry. Guest blog by Rick Anderson, Wind River.

RTOS application development redefined

RTOS application development redefined
Nearly four decades ago VxWorks revolutionised the RTOS market by enabling a hardware board to connect to a Unix workstation dramatically changing the edit/compile/debug paradigm. This revolution was so disruptive that within ten years many established competitors went out of business or were acquired as a way to be salvaged. Guest blog written by Michel Genard, Wind River.

Pushing the barriers of autonomous systems

The Swarm Technology are not just any ordinary unmanned aircraft systems (UAS). They fly together. Better still, they swarm together, for any Star Trek fans out there. They can also team up with a manned aircraft and act like a force multiplier. This kind of unmanned aircraft can bring significant improvements to almost every area of national and homeland security, from enhanced surveillance to missile defence.  Guest blog written by Andreea Volosincu, Wind River.

Is your ATM moving from Windows 7 to Windows 10?

Is your ATM moving from Windows 7 to Windows 10?
Within the financial sector, Automated Teller Machines (ATMs) are one of the primary mechanisms for getting cash out of your bank or savings and loan account.  The majority of these devices are running Microsoft’s Windows 7 operating system on older Intel motherboards.   Guest blog written by Rick Anderson, Wind River.

Convert the service not the component

Convert the service not the component
A new white paper written by Sandvine and Wind River asserts that NFV maybe hasn’t quite lived up to the promise of removing dependencies on vendor hardware. That said, it has been, and continues to be, a necessary element in the evolution of the telecommunications industry.  Guest blog written by Jeff Gowan, Wind River.

Linux containers benefit small-footprint edge applications

Linux containers benefit small-footprint edge applications
While Linux containers have been around a long time and are widely deployed in data centres and IT environments, the lack of easy-to-use pre-integrated platforms and lack of interaction with a broader ecosystem have prohibited their use in small-footprint edge systems.
