Company to demonstrate solution used by leading automotive suppliers at HMi Transport & Systems Europe 2012
Burlington, Mass — Jun 25, 2012 — Klocwork Inc, the global leader in automated source code analysis (SCA) solutions for developing more secure and reliable software, today announced it will highlight its automotive capabilities at the HMi Transport & Systems Europe 2012 event, June 25-26 in Berlin, Germany.
From air bag deployment to navigation to infotainment systems, software is playing a more substantial role in the development of functionality and features in today’s vehicles. According to VDC Research Group’s 2011 Embedded System Engineering Survey Data, Vertical Markets report, 44.1 percent of automotive sector respondents expected the total lines of software code to increase for their next project, driving a total average expected increase of 15.2 percent.
"Our data demonstrates not only a growing reliance on software to drive innovation in the automotive sector, but also increasing software complexity," said Chris Rommel, Vice President, Embedded Practices, VDC Research. "Managing the risk inherent in large and complex code bases is a serious challenge for these software development teams. It requires appropriate strategies, tools and industry standards compliance to mitigate that risk."
Automotive manufacturers and suppliers are turning to source code analysis technology to help address these software development challenges. Klocwork offers a comprehensive static analysis solution that is used by four of the top five global automotive suppliers. It provides:
- sophisticated detection of critical defects and security vulnerabilities in C, C++, Java and C# code
- automatic reporting of MISRA-C and MISRA-C++ coding standard violations at the developer desktop, integration build and within its code review tool to help ensure compliance with the Motor Industry Software Reliability Association (MISRA) coding standards
- support for approximately 20 requirements outlined in Part 6 of the International Organization for Standardization’s (ISO) functional safety standard for road vehicle safety, ISO-26262
"Ensuring the software that drives our diagnostics and onboard systems for the automotive industry is MISRA compliant is an important milestone in our development process," said Christian Desmoulins, CEO, ACTIA. "The unique combination of critical defect detection and MISRA support offered by Klocwork is one of the key reasons we choose their static analysis solution."
"Seeing the innovation being developed in the automotive sector through the use of software is very exciting," said Alen Zukich, director of product management, Klocwork. "But with tens of millions of lines of code in the average vehicle, the importance of ensuring the safety and reliability of that software cannot be underestimated. At Klocwork, we’re focused on creating tools that give software developers confidence in the code they produce."
For OEMs and suppliers in the automotive space, the HMI Transport & Systems Europe 2012 event focuses on strategic approaches as well as new technologies and ideas in improving developments, concepts and systems in automotive human machine interfaces (HMi).
