Linux in Basic Safety Applications

By July 21, 2021August 6th, 2021Blog, Workshop

In May, the ELISA Project hosted its 7th Workshop with 239 participants from 37 different countries. For a complete recap of the workshop, click here. Today, we’ll take a look at one of the sessions led by Jason Smith, Principal Engineer at UL LLC, about the “Linux in Basic Safety Applications.”

Linux is more often being used in applications with safety relevance:

  • Complex safety-related functions necessitating the advantages of an OS, or
  • Complex end application necessitating the advantages of an OS, now being asked to perform one or more basic safety-related functions (for example: voltage, current, temperature monitoring)

In both cases, software used to implement the safety-related functions may be required to conform/comply with applicable functional safety standards.

In this presentation, Jason will discuss linux in basic safety applications, the goals and progress of the white paper the ELISA Project is working on and details about how to get involved.
