Hozon New Energy Automobile has chosen intelligent system software provider Wind River to create its high-performance Hozon Automotive Intelligent Security Vehicle Platform.
According to Wind River, the platform will integrate open-source frameworks and tools, and is set to go into production in 2025.
The Hozon Automotive Intelligent Security Vehicle Platform is a hardware and software framework for computing gateways and vehicle control. Leveraging Wind River Linux, an embedded Linux platform, offers stability and security on Arm silicon. Its purpose is to assist development teams in creating, deploying and operating embedded software applications that run on a purpose-built Linux operating system.
According to Avijit Sinha, the chief product officer at Wind River, the software will play a crucial role in propelling the automotive industry forward and opening up new opportunities for manufacturers and consumers.
“Wind River Linux can help innovators such as Hozon develop high-performance frameworks designed to accelerate the software-defined vehicle,” Sinha states.
Hozon and Wind River’s collaboration also includes projects on next-generation automotive infrastructure software for enabling software-defined vehicle capabilities. These projects focus on high-performance computing, vehicle-to-infrastructure networking (V2X) and advanced driver assist systems (ADAS).
With over four decades of experience, Wind River delivers software for mission-critical intelligent systems that require high security, safety, and reliability. It powers many devices and systems in various industries, including automotive, aerospace, defense, industrial, medical and telecommunications.
Founded in 2014, Hozon New Energy Automobile focuses on integrating hardware products and software services through R&D innovation, smart manufacturing and omnichannel sales services. The company says that its automotive brand, Neta Auto, aims to make intelligent electric vehicles for all by focusing on product development and technology.
Dai Dali, the chief technology officer at Hozon, stated that the company is pushing the limits of innovation in its vehicle development.
“It is important to work with both an Auto and a Linux expert who possesses the highest levels of professional services ability combined with long-term support and localization capabilities, including expertise in the areas of performance optimization, security and safety,” adds Dali.
In September, Wind River partnered with Vodafone to deploy Wind River Studio in Vodafone’s Open RAN initiative in Wales and South West England. Wind River Studio, built on the open-source StarlingX project, enables automated management of distributed edge networks at scale.
This collaboration aims to address the challenges of deploying and managing a physically distributed, cloud-native infrastructure for traditional RAN performance in a vRAN/Open RAN deployment.
