Command and Control for the Internet of Things

Wind River® operating systems are the software foundation for building devices, machines, and systems for the Internet of Things.



Industrial automation is the use of control systems, such as computers or robots, and information technologies for handling different processes and machineries in an industry to replace a human being. It is the second step beyond mechanization in the scope of industrialization.

Device makers in the industrial automation market are faced with demands of the performance, reliability, safety, and security capabilities to meet the highest standards, like IEC 61508 and derived standards.


Wind River operating systems are part of the Wind River Helix portfolio of technologies. Our products include the industry’s most popular real-time operating system and the leading open source embedded environment. They bring unmatched performance and dependability to highly dynamic and intelligent devices, systems, and networks.

VxWorks - Real-time Operating System (RTOS)

VxWorks® is the world's most widely deployed real-time operating system (RTOS). It delivers unrivaled deterministic performance and sets the standard for a scalable, future-proof, safe, and secure operating environment for connected devices in the Internet of Things (IoT).


The Foundation for Embedded Innovation in More Than 2 Billion Devices.

VxWorks has been the industry-leading real-time operating systems (RTOS) for building embedded devices and systems for nearly 40 years. Its rich functionality, high performance, determinism, and low latency help our customers deploy innovative products while lowering costs and shortening production cycles.


As a deterministic, priority-based preemptive RTOS with low latency and minimal jitter, VxWorks is ideal for hard real-time embedded applications.

VxWorks includes many advanced security features to address the evolving security threats connected devices face at all stages, from boot-up to operation to data transmission to powered off.


Safety features such as time and space partitioning have been leveraged in the certification of VxWorks to DO-178C, IEC 61508, and ISO 26262 safety standards.

Built on an upgradeable, future-proof architecture, VxWorks helps you rapidly respond to changing market requirements, customer needs, and technology advancements, preserving your investment.


VxWorks contains a broad suite of advanced features and protocols that help address a host of specialized needs unique to specific industries.
