Wind River Labs Unveiled to Drive Developer Innovation at the Intelligent Edge

-Developer-focused site provides access to software projects, proofs-of-concept, open source integrations, experimental software, and first-ever freely available VxWorks® SDK. -ROS 2 for VxWorks and Wind River® Linux, OpenCV for VxWorks, and TensorFlow for Wind River Linux headline the available projects. -Wind River Labs complements company’s comprehensive software portfolio that supports a diverse range of developer journeys, from prototype to design and development to deployment.

-Wind River®, a leader in delivering software for the intelligent edge, today introduced Wind River Labs, a new developer-focused site where technologists can gain access to software projects, proofs-of-concept, open source integrations, experimental software, and new technologies. The site includes the first-ever freely available VxWorks® real-time operating system (RTOS) software developer kit (SDK) for the developer community.


Wind River Labs is an environment where developers, both Wind River customers and non-customers, can collaborate to innovate at the edge, enabling capabilities such as machine learning and computer vision. This includes interacting with the software engineers who created the projects, other software engineers tackling similar challenges, and Wind River ecosystem members exploring new markets and forward-looking designs.

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, and immediately start prototyping and designing applications on the company's industry-leading operating systems.

Other featured Wind River Labs projects include the following:

TensorFlow for Wind River Linux
OpenCV for VxWorks
Microsoft Azure IoT SDK for VxWorks
AWS IoT Device SDK for VxWorks
Google Cloud IoT Core SDK for VxWorks
Google Test support for VxWorks
OpenAMP for VxWorks Remote Compute
"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 complements the company's comprehensive software portfolio that supports a diverse range of developer journeys, from prototype to design and development to deployment, whether teams want to start with open source and need Linux or an RTOS or both. The portfolio flexibility allows companies to deliver highly competitive products that leverage the latest community-driven innovations while meeting safety, security, and reliability requirements for mission-critical applications.

Waypoint Robotics/Productive Robotics Easy to Use, Omnidirectional 7 DoF Mobile Manipulator

Waypoint Robotics/Productive Robotics omnidirectional 7 DoF mobile manipulator combines the easiest to use, most capable omnidirectional autonomous mobile robot with the simplest and most flexible 7 axis collaborative robot arm. The Vector AMR's omnidirectional mobility enables fast, precise docking in any direction or orientation so the OB7 can perform accurate and precise grasping or picking tasks, taking full advantage of the cobots' 7 degrees of freedom (7 DoF) and superior dexterity. It can be powered using Waypoint's EnZone wireless charger that provides on-demand energy and opportunity charging for longer run times. Workers can use this mobile platform to perform repetitive tasks such as machine tending, quality assurance sampling, material replenishment, packaging, and many others, so they can focus on the high skilled jobs for which they are uniquely qualified. It has never been easier or more cost effective to deploy a mobile manipulator for manufacturing and logistics applications.
