With more than one billion vehicles on the road and nearly 22 million vehicles recalled in 2013 alone, development teams are increasingly being held accountable to deliver safe, secure software. Unfortunately, automotive functional safety and ISO 26262 certification can be a difficult and lengthy landscape for development teams to navigate. To help with increasing scrutiny and more complex systems, verification and validation by analysis is veering away from dynamic methods towards static analysis tools. In fact, ISO 26262 recommends static code analysis for ASILs B to D.
Join us on Thursday, July 17th for “Static Analysis’ Role in Automotive Functional Safety”, our joint webinar with QNX Software Systems that will explore how static code analysis can be used as a real contributor to functional safety, rather than just deployed as a means of ticking another box during an audit. We’ll also look at how using a certified RTOS can simplify the overall certification process.
During this webinar, you’ll learn:
• What functional safety and ISO 26262 are
• The balance between dynamic and static analysis
• How purpose-built tools can simply the qualification process
