AUSTIN, TX — May 18, 2016 — NXP® FTF Technology Forum — Green Hills Software, the worldwide leader in high assurance operating systems, today announced DURA Automotive Systems' selection of the Green Hills Platform for ADAS, featuring the safe and secure INTEGRITY® real-time operating system (RTOS), to power DURA's Highly Automated Driving control system. The control system integrates vision, vehicle and range-based sensor data while safely and securely instructing crucial systems for brakes, steering and powertrain. Utilizing the INTEGRITY secure and safe separation architecture on the 64-bit NXP S32V200 family of automotive processors, the Highly Automated Driving control system is perfectly suited for automakers building open, highly secure and scalable platforms with the latest in Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) features.

Highly Automated Driving Control System
Automakers are racing to introduce automated driving features with stringent levels of security and safety. DURA's revolutionary Highly Automated Driving control system incorporates a dedicated control module, complete with software, vision, communication and range-based sensors. This module features sophisticated image processing algorithms and the necessary V2X hardware and software for the latest in vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure communications. Green Hills INTEGRITY RTOS is the trusted execution environment to safely and securely run critical software functions for vision cognition, sensor fusion and vehicle dynamics. The system maintains a low power envelope that allows for passive cooling and compact packaging, making the system perfectly suited for integration by automakers worldwide.

"Our Highly Automated Driving control system is a watershed moment for car makers that seek a scalable, open architecture to develop highly secure, next-generation, semi-autonomous features," said Nizar Trigui, chief operating officer at DURA. "We chose Green Hills INTEGRITY RTOS for its proven safety and security architecture as the trusted environment to execute our sophisticated algorithms for vision cognition and autonomous vehicle control."

"Green Hills Software is very honored that DURA selected our INTEGRITY RTOS as the trusted execution environment for their Highly Automated Driving control system," said Dan O'Dowd, founder and chief executive officer of Green Hills Software. "Dura's Highly Automated Driving control system addresses automakers' desire to achieve rapid deployment of next-generation autonomous features. Our safe and secure INTEGRITY coupled with its advanced MULTI® software development environment are widely used in safety-critical car subsystems by automotive OEMs and Tier 1s worldwide, and we're proud to bring these strengths to the DURA solution."
