Wind River®, a global leader in delivering software for mission-critical intelligent systems, today announced a strategic collaboration with Horizon Robotics to advance smart driving solutions. Horizon is a leading provider of energy-efficient computing solutions for advanced driver assist systems (ADAS) for consumer vehicles in China.

The collaboration between the two companies will enable OEMs to leverage a fully integrated ADAS hardware/software solution based on Horizon’s Journey series computing solutions and the Wind River cloud-to-edge portfolio. This will reduce time-to-market and cost by simplifying development and integration. The high-performance and cost-effective technologies are ideally suited for next-generation applications such as automated driving and powering the software-defined vehicle.

As a pioneer in commercializing embedded passenger-vehicle ADAS and automated driving (AD) products in China, Horizon’s self-developed Journey series computing solutions cover all scenarios of automated driving. Through the partnership, Horizon and Wind River will enable Wind River software, including VxWorks®, the world’s most performant, safe, and secure real-time operating system (RTOS); Wind River Helix Virtualization Platform, a safety-certified Type 1 hypervisor-based multi-tenant platform; Wind River Linux; and Wind River Studio, on Horizon’s Journey series product.

“The auto industry in China is transforming tremendously, and Horizon continues to create the computational foundation for the era of smart vehicles,” said Dr. Kai Yu, Founder and CEO of Horizon. “We are committed to improving the efficiency and enhancement of automated driving by collaborating with upstream and downstream partners and are honored to establish this collaboration with Wind River. By leveraging the core capabilities of Horizon and Wind River, we will provide differentiated integrated solutions for OEMs, resulting in safer and optimized mobility for consumers.”
