After nearly 40 years in the business, with customers writing 100’s of millions of lines of application code running on billions of devices on earth and in space, the embedded industry’s leading software provider continues to deliver differentiated and disruptive offerings.

At Embedded World Wind River has introduced the newest cutting-edge addition to its comprehensive edge compute software portfolio, which was just selected as ‘Best in Show’ at the event.
With Wind River Helix Virtualisation Platform we’re drastically simplifying embedded solution development, which is significantly more complex today than it once was. This increase in complexity is fuelled by the demand for more intelligence at the edge with a path toward autonomous systems; the need to evolve and modernise legacy systems while simultaneously supporting existing applications; the cost and effort of supporting mandated safety regulations; and keeping pace with innovation.
Helix Platform brings the best of all worlds together into one edge compute software offering. It is a foundation that leverages virtualisation, takes advantage of the proven capabilities of VxWorks and the openness of Linux, offers the flexibility to add other OSes as needed, and delivers the scalability to consolidate legacy and new applications into one system.
But what does this really mean? Let’s break it down…
And the list goes on. From modernising aerospace platforms to updating industrial infrastructure and advancing autonomous driving, Helix Platform addresses the many needs of multiple market segments.
Helix Platform is a critical building block for how Wind River will continue to accelerate the evolution from automated devices towards more intelligent and autonomous systems, and we’re thrilled to have customers already reaping the many benefits of the platform.
