Wind River Systems, Inc. Key Developments

Israel Aerospace Industries Delivers Revolutionary Airplane Towing Vehicle with Wind River Systems, Inc

Wind River announced that the company has announced that Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) relied on the Wind River VxWorks® Cert Platform real-time operating system (RTOS) and Wind River Professional Services for its innovative semi-autonomous airplane towing vehicle, TaxiBot. IAI offers solutions for a variety of requirements in space, air, land, sea, and cyberspace, for both commercial and defense applications. In collaboration with Airbus and TLD Group, which enables airplanes to taxi from the gate to the runway without using their own engines, dramatically reducing fuel consumption and costs, CO2 emissions, and noise. According to IAI, TaxiBot has the potential to save the airlines hundreds of millions in fuel costs and a reduction in foreign-object damage to jet engines. At the Heathrow Airport, British Airways is saving more than 20 million dollars per year. The vehicle’s electric driving system cuts CO2 emissions by as much as 85% compared to airplanes waiting for takeoff. And carriers can recoup their investment in about 18 months. From a technology perspective, the challenge for IAI was to optimize control capabilities while achieving operational simplicity; and from a certification perspective, the challenge was to achieve safety certification under avionics software standard DO-178B. With VxWorks Cert Platform and Professional Services, Wind River represented a one-stop shop for everything from the operating system to support and services, all the way through certification.

Wind River Introduces the Latest Version of Wind River Simics

Wind River has introduced the latest version of Wind River Simics®. Simics accelerates software development by delivering development capabilities and facilitates Agile software practices through the use of simulation technologies. The latest updates to Simics include accelerated simulation performance and expanded capabilities for enhancing access, collaboration, and automation for software developers. Additionally, the process for modeling, debugging, and model asset reuse has been further improved to deliver a simpler user experience. Other new improvements provide additional capabilities enabling Agile and automated testing with shorter feedback loops. New features include: Greater performance: Simulation performance has been enhanced for tightly coupled multi-core and multiprocessor systems on multi-core hosts. Testing on parallel workloads shows performance increases of up to seven times when simulating an eight-core Linux symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) target on an eight-core host. Coupled with its existing performance technologies, Simics can efficiently simulate ever more complex targets to deliver the benefits of simulation for any target system; Easier test automation: Simplified scripting interfaces and fault injection framework allow easier use of Simics in test automation environments; Simpler collaboration: A checkpoint server allows easier management of checkpoints across teams. Users can share the system state of their simulations with others; Additional quick-start platforms: Immediate access to three quick-start platforms (Intel®, ARM®, and Power) allows every Simics user to enable early prototyping and tooling integration; and improved modeling support: Enhanced support for SystemC models with a new SystemC library and improved debugging tools help teams get models up and running quickly.
