Wind River has set up a site to distribute more experimental libraries based around its real-time operating systems and provide a hub for users to interact. The first crop of projects on the site include kits for machine learning, machine vision and cloud-computing interfaces.
The company said the Wind River Labs site includes the first-ever freely available VxWorks real-time operating system (RTOS) software developer kit (SDK) for developers. The available VxWorks SDK includes an open source board support package for Raspberry Pi and UP Squared hardware. Developers can now download the latest version of VxWorks, along with projects such as ROS (Robot Operating System) 2, so that they get to work on prototypes without licensing negotiations.
“With the amount of software content proliferating, and autonomous and intelligent systems significantly growing in relevance, driving collaborative innovation is more important than ever,” said Gareth Noyes, chief strategy officer at Wind River. “Wind River Labs gives developers early access to cutting edge software projects, and allows the sharing of ideas through working code, examples, and recipes for technologies and community projects.”
Wind River Labs projects available on the site include: TensorFlow for Wind River Linux, OpenCV for VxWorks; Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud IoT SDKs for VxWorks; and OpenAMP for VxWorks Remote Compute.
