Open Source Summit Europe schedule announced REGISTER TODAY to attend in Vienna September 16-18 including Critical Software Summit >>

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 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. Learn more >>
