Working Groups

Automotive WG

Learn More

The automotive workgroup discusses the conditions and prerequisites the automotive sector needs to integrate Linux into a safety critical system. We focus on actual use cases from the Automotive domain to derive the technical requirements to the kernel as a basis for investigation within the Architecture Workgroup and to serve as a blueprint for actual projects in the future. Our output (safety concepts and other material) is stored and maintained in the workgroup repository under https://github.com/elisa-tech/wg-automotive. Our close collaboration with AGL results in a meta-elisa layer enhancing the instrument cluster demo for safety relevant parts, which can be found at https://github.com/elisa-tech/meta-elisa

Linux Features for Safety-Critical Systems WG

Learn More

The goal of the Linux Features for Safety-Critical Systems Working Group is to identify existing Linux Kernel features which may be leveraged for use in safety critical systems. We aim to bring together kernel developers and producers of safety critical systems to demonstrate use of such features in real systems, and to learn from these experiences together as a community.

Get Involved

Medical Devices WG

Learn More

In the context of medical device safety standards, develop best practices to analyze systems and identify the components of linux that will be participating in safety analysis.

Get Involved 

Open-Source Engineering Process WG

Learn More

The Open-Source Engineering Process WG examines how software engineering processes can be used to facilitate the certification of safety-critical systems incorporating Linux and other FOSS. We aim to consider the roles that a Linux-based OS might have in such systems, and identify how FOSS developers, system integrators and product creators can specify these, and provide evidence to support associated safety arguments.

Get Involved 

Safety Architecture WG

Learn More

According to technical safety requirements produced by domain specific WGs the focus of the Safety Architecture WG is to determine critical Linux subsystems and components in supporting safety functions, define associated safety requirements and scalable architectural assumptions, deliver corresponding safety analyses for their individual qualification and their integration into the safety critical system.

Get Involved

Tool Investigation and Code Improvement WG

Learn More

The Tool Investigation and Code Improvement WG focuses on application of tools, handling the tool results, and improving the kernel based on the tools’ feedback
