COMMENT - The console for gaming and skills for using the software, are not very different from the consoles used for military drone operators. Neither is the software.
Green Hills is selling, selling, selling, into markets which, if they are running true to their past performance. When I was married to their Senior Vice-President in charge of Advanced Products, Craig Franklin, he explained in detail how this worked, as he chuckled and boasted about reselling products already paid for by the customer as packaged products for wider sales. He said these were essentially the same products. It is still true for military applications?
Could the products being retailed to companies have been developed specifically for the military and then repackaged for commercial use, with some modifications? What kind of canny hacker would be able to buy these are do a little reverse engineering, accessing the system? Inquiring minds want to know.
Dan (Drone Boy) O'Dowd, is a thrifty little sucker, who would not do more than necessary. And who would be able to check?
NEWS RELEASE: Green Hills Software
SANTA BARBARA, CA, May 28, 2013 (Marketwired via COMTEX) -- Green Hills Software, the largest independent vendor of embedded and mobile virtualization software solutions, will demonstrate its latest automotive software solutions at Telematics Detroit, Novi, MI, June 5 - 6, 2013, in booth # 39/40.
-- Safe, Reliable Android-based Infotainment Head Unit and Real-time Cluster Consolidation on Texas Instruments OMAP(TM) 5 Applications Processor
Green Hills Software will demonstrate the latest update to its infotainment reference solution which is adding the capability to safely isolate and run a real-time graphical cluster in combination with the Android-based infotainment capabilities -- all on a single OMAP 5 applications processor. Green Hills Automotive solutions leverage a decade of proven cross-industry capabilities for combining mixed-criticality functions by showing Android running as a secure guest on the INTERGITY Multivisor(TM) virtualization technology on one display while executing the more critical Altia-based graphics cluster as a native INTEGRITY application on a second display. This demonstration highlights the successful, guaranteed separation and isolation between the head unit and cluster when utilizing Green Hills Software's safe and secure INTEGRITY(R) real time operating system.
-- Secure HTML5-based Head Unit and Cluster Communications on Freescale's i.MX 6 Applications Processors
Based on Obigo's innovative HTML5-based Automotive Web Solutions, Green Hills will demonstrate secure, reliable communication of driver information and multimedia information between an HTML5-based media-enabled instrument cluster running Green Hills INTERGITY real-time operating system and a HTML5-based Head Unit with HMI and multimedia applications running Linux, both running natively on separate i.MX 6 automotive reference platforms. This demonstration showcases the optimum way to deliver secure, scalable communications between different HTML5-based functions in the vehicle.
