Safety-critical software in machinery

Introduction | Team | Publications |

Introduction

Programmable electronics is more economical and versatile to use comparing to hardwired electronics. Therefore machine manufacturers implement also safety related functions using software components. Software errors are a risk for the safe use of machines, but error-free software code has not been reached in spite of the improvement in product development measures. The goal of the project is to create a safety-conscious method for software development and criteria for the selection of suitable measures to the different phases of software life cycle.

The project duration is March 2009 - December 2011.

Partners

The project is implemented by VTT and TUT, Department of Automation Science and Engineering and Department of Software Systems.

The project is funded by TEKES and the following companies: John Deere Forestry, Bronto Skylift , ABB, Sandvik Mining and Construction, Metso, EPEC, Konecranes, Sundcon, and Safety Advisor.
