Wind River and Hyundai Mobis Expand Partnership, Accelerating SDV Development Roadmap

By Alex Passett March 07, 2024

Earlier this morning on Internet Telephony (one of our many sister sites), we discussed new automation and scalability-centric enhancements to Wind River Studio. This, of course, is courtesy of Wind River, a global deliverer of software for mission-critical intelligent systems. (Read that story here.)

Still in the vein of automation, we have IoT-applicable news from Wind River to cover. This also involves global auto parts vendor Hyundai Mobis and its teams that focus on autonomous driving, connectivity and electrification as the “era of smart mobility” (as they’ve called it) continues to kick into high gear.

More specifically, Hyundai Mobis’ vision is to “be a provider of differentiated mobility solutions that combine software and hardware in the upcoming mobility industry.” To realize the extent of this vision, the company’s expanded business areas include smart mobility, UAM and robotics based on its R&D capability and production capacity.

Back to the news at hand: Wind River and Hyundai Mobis are expanding upon their existing partnership, as the two have already been collaborating on “a best-in-class software development infrastructure for next-gen mobility.” The two are continuing to work closely to advance Software-Defined Vehicle (SDV) developments, and now Hyundai Mobis has selected Wind River Studio in particular for the acceleration of its SDV plans for the years ahead.

Hyundai Mobis’ pipeline, built with Wind River Studio (via continuous integrations and testing initiatives) will also become strengthened by the DevSecOps process with Hyundai Mobis’ own Dev Studio, an innovative collaboration platform that provides a space-free cooperative environment. Hyundai Mobis will employ key Wind River Studio components (such as Virtual Lab, test automation, pipelines, and Web IDE), all within a cloud-native infrastructure to deliver a modernized development environment for an end-to-end SDV lifecycle, including software development, deployment, and operation of central controller gateway and in-vehicle infotainment systems.

Jung Soo-Kyung, Executive Vice President of Hyundai Mobis, stated that they “expect this continued work together will lead to a global collaboration system that will improve scalability and efficiency for development in the ever-evolving automotive landscape.”

Wind River President Avijit Sinha also commented, reaffirming how “Software is at the center of enabling the reality of a more connected and autonomous future. Thus, Wind River Studio can help automotive leaders such as Hyundai Mobis achieve a modernized development framework across cloud and edge combined with advanced software lifecycle management capability to enable them to accelerate their innovation and carve a path to future success.”
