KUKA to Showplace VxWin Technology at Wind River User Conference

5/18/2005 - KUKA Controls, a leading developer of real-time operating system software, announced that as a Wind River Platform Partner, it will be an exhibitor and session presenter at the Wind River 2005 Worldwide User Conference, May 22-25 in Orlando, Fla.

KUKA Controls will participate in the Partner Pavilion in the Networking Lounge. The KUKA Controls' Session will demonstrate how 50,000 robots can't be wrong. The audience will learn how Germany's #1 robot manufacturer, KUKA Roboter, is using VxWorks with Windows(r) XP to build powerful, safe, and reliable industrial robot controls with hard real-time performance and high-end graphical interface.

VxWin(r) enables the coexistence of two operating systems on one processor in part by dividing the PC memory so that VxWorks(r) and Windows(r) XP Embedded each operate in their own, separate memory area.

The 2005 Wind River Partner Pavilion and Networking Lounge will afford customers an interactive venue to meet with the KUKA Controls' team and go through a product demo. This three-day event will include thought-provoking general session keynote addresses and panel discussions, over 60 technical and business track sessions and workshops, a Partner Pavilion Showcase area, an Internet Alley, and many other educational opportunities.

The VxWorks Technology tracks at the Conference explore best practices, tips and tricks when developing devices using VxWorks, as well as how VxWorks empowers you to develop devices that interface with other operating systems and technologies.
