Advancing Open Source Safety-Critical Systems

The Enabling Linux In Safety Applications (ELISA) project aims to make it easier for companies to build and certify Linux-based safety-critical applications – systems whose failure could result in loss of human life, significant property damage or environmental damage. ELISA members are working together to define and maintain a common set of tools and processes that can help companies demonstrate that a specific Linux-based system meets the necessary safety requirements for certification.

ELISA Workshop – Munich

The ELISA Project hosts in-person workshops on a regular basis to gather the project community to further collaboration, accelerate working group progress, and plan for future goals. The next workshop...


ELISA members are defining and maintaining a common set of elements, processes and tools that can be incorporated into specific Linux-based, safety-critical systems amenable to safety certification. ELISA is also working with certification authorities and standardization bodies in multiple industries to establish how Linux can be used as a component in safety-critical systems.

Join us to expand the use of Linux across new industries including healthcare, energy, transportation, and manufacturing. Learn more today to participate and support ELISA.
