By Ken Briodagh January 10, 2018

Green Hills Software, a high-assurance real-time operating systems and virtualization, has announced the integration of u-blox automotive connectivity and positioning technology with the Green Hills Platform for Secure Connected Car.

The Green Hills INTEGRITY real-time operating system and Multivisor secure virtualization provide the trusted software foundation and impenetrable partitions to securely and safely combine Linux-based connected car services with critical application and vehicle bus services utilizing u-blox portfolio of connectivity modules – all in a single Electronic Control Unit (ECU). The Platform enables vehicle manufacturers and their suppliers to safely leverage open-source software while providing unmatched system flexibility, scalability and performance without compromising system safety or security when executing critical applications like remote vehicle monitoring & control, electric vehicle management and regulatory reporting, eCall/bCall, telematics services and ADAS data.

u-blox provides the essential positioning, short-range wireless and cellular radio technologies, while Green Hills provides the foundational safe and secure embedded run-time software environment required to secure next-generation high speed, complex Connected Car modules.

"We're pleased to be partnering with Green Hills because unbreakable security and reliability in the connected car module is as essential as high-speed connectivity," said Stefan Gudmundsson, Principal, Automotive Market Development, u-blox. "Our unique portfolio of wireless as well as GNSS chips and modules when combined with Green Hills trusted INTEGRITY RTOS and secure Multivisor enables our customers to build unmatched secure and scalable solutions, powering the nerve center of the connected car."

u-blox enables automotive OEMs to address and conquer some of the key challenges faced by the Secure Connected Car today and in the future, by providing flexibility, scalability, and superior performance.

"Security and safety are crucial for the connected car because the Connected Car TCU must not be exploitable as a threat vector into the vehicle," says Dan Mender, VP, Business Development, Green Hills Software. "By combining u-blox high performance connectivity and GNSS products with Green Hills industry-leading safe and secure RTOS and hypervisor solutions, automotive OEMs and Tier 1s can confidently deliver the promise of a hacker-proof global Connected Car highway without compromise."
