GHS launches open platform for autonomous vehicles
Targeting the autonomous systems community, the platform provides a secure, highly reliable and safe software foundation for Autonomous Vehicle and UCS developers to host their UAS (Unmanned Autonomous Systems) applications. At the foundation is Green Hills Software’s INTEGRITY-178B real-time operating system (RTOS), a multi-level secure operating system.
As the UCS working group continues to architect standards by which unmanned platforms are certified for use in an operational environment, Green Hills Software is investing its own resources to ensure its tools and RTOS integrate into that framework.
According to Dan O’Dowd, chief executive officer and founder of Green Hills Software: “Our ISS Autonomous Vehicle Open Platform is the first end-to-end Open Platform in the embedded industry that includes an EAL6+-certified RTOS and a FIPS-validated Embedded Cryptographic Toolkit.”
O’Dowd continued, “Our ISS AV Open Platform provides a reliable foundation to all Autonomous Vehicle and UCS developers reducing cost and time-to-market without compromising or sidestepping the demanding high-assurance software requirements that are expected from an operating system or cryptographic toolkit.”
The ISS AV Open Platform is provided by INTEGRITY Security Services (ISS), a business unit of Green Hills Software. The ISS AV Open Platform builds on the INTEGRITY-178B RTOS to provide a high availability framework, and a TCP stack and file system for applications in need of those services.
In addition, the platform approach is agnostic to the hardware, allowing platform providers to utilize the hardware architecture best suited for their environment.
INTEGRITY Security Services’ Autonomous Vehicle Open Platform is available today on a wide variety of microprocessor architectures, including some multicore processors.
