As a leading supplier of safe and secure real-time operating systems, Green Hills is the first to receive the certificate, issued by the globally-recognized certification company exida. The certificate reaffirms Green Hills Software’s leadership in supporting global vehicle manufacturers’ (OEM) efforts to meet the requirements of the UNECE WP.29 R155 regulation and incorporate security measures across their development, production, and post-production processes.
