Autoware on eMCOS POSIX RTOS product

Most Autoware applications start with software development on Linux. However, for an application to be used in mass production in areas requiring functional safety, relevant functions must meet functional safety standards. This can be only realized with a safety-certified RTOS.

eSOL’s eMCOS SDK provides a high-performance, scalable POSIX Real-Time OS and Hypervisor platform. Compared to traditional RTOS technologies, eMCOS’ modern multi-kernel (aka distributed microkernels) architecture offers higher multi/manycore performance and the largest freedom from interference (FFI) for the highest functional safety. The core element of eMCOS was already pre-certified according to ISO 26262 ASIL D safety standard for automotive.

Our Autoware Engineering Services team is very familiar with eMCOS to reduce the time-to-market of your Linux Autoware port to a functionally safe, production-ready Autoware solution on eMCOS POSIX.
