New safety standards ISO 26262 present a challenge for companies producing safety-relevant embedded systems. Safety verification today is often ad-hoc and manual; it is done differently for digital and analogue, hardware and software.
The VeTeSS project has developed standardized tools and methods for verification of the robustness of safety-relevant systems, particularly against transient common-cause faults. In total, 24 companies and institutions across Europe have collaborated, where Idneo has played an industrial role applying the proposed methods and tools on a selected number of use cases.
The project has contributed in establishing Safety process, spreading the Functional Safety across the organization, and increasing robustness and competitiveness on safety-relevant product development.
