Wind River Systems provides software operating systems and development tools for embedded systems. A microprocessor and software comprise embedded systems, which are used in more than 1 billion products that include auto braking systems, Internet traffic routers, jet fighter control panels, mobile phones, set-top boxes, traffic signals, and other consumer electronics.
Building safe and secure systems is the hallmark of Wind River. For the past 30 years they have been ensuring that safety-critical systems, for everything from industrial plants and electrical substations to jet airliners and commuter trains, absolutely work without fail. They are now harnessing our decades of field experience to deploy advanced technologies such as software agents and microkernels to more fully integrate our ultra-reliable operating systems into the Internet of Things (IoT). The Internet of Things is officially here. And with it are not only new challenges, but also untapped value and immense opportunity estimated at $19 trillion. Realize IoT’s huge potential with Wind River Helix, a comprehensive portfolio of software solutions for harnessing intelligence to drive innovation and business transformation. With their offering, developers and device manufacturers can not only create the safe, secure, and reliable intelligent systems that make up IoT, but also move the data generated by these systems–from the secure and managed devices at the edge, through the gateway, across the critical network infrastructure, and up into the cloud. Wind River Helix is everything a business needs to both survive and thrive in this exciting new era of data.
