The Hercules safety microcontroller platform consists of three ARM® Cortex™-based microcontroller families: TMS470M, TMS570 and RM4x. Designed specifically for IEC 61508 and ISO 262622 safety critical applications, the Hercules platform provides advanced integrated safety features while delivering scalable performance, connectivity, and memory options.
My company is part of the team developing a revolutionary active suspension system for multi-track vehicles (3/4/6-wheel). We are very close to a design-in for one of the Hercules family chips for our controller. I honestly think this might be something TI would like to showcase as a very high cool-factor application for Hercules. If you can give me a name on the product family marketing team or have them contact me directly I'd appreciate it. With large companies like TI it is very hard to figure out who to talk to sometimes.
Here is a taste of the tech in an early form (it is much cooler now). http://www.wesllcorp.com/

Thanks for reaching out. This sounds interesting. If you could please re-post your feedback here in our Hercules feedback thread here:
Awesome support (not!) to a request for a marketing person's name.
have contacted the semiconductor technical support department for Texas
Instruments. Unfortunately, we do not provide design services for end
applications. We do however have several design houses that specialize
in using TI devices that we recommend. I have included a link below to
assist you with the search of a design house that may work for you in
your application. If you have any other questions please feel free to
Texas Instruments Semiconductor Technical Support
I will send you a friend request via the forum so that we can correspond directly on this. It looks like you used a generic technical support link that may not have a real person behind it. Sorry.
