ELISA Mini-Summit @ Open Source Summit Japan (Yokohama, Japan)

December 7, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm


If you’re attending Open Source Summit Japan, we invite you to join us for the ELISA Mini-Summit on Wednesday, December 7 at 9 am – 12:30 pm. The Mini-Summit is open to all in-person attendees. Pre-registration is required and there is a $10 registration fee. To register for the ELISA Mini Summit, add it to your Open Source Summit Japan registration.

Enabling Linux in Safety Applications (ELISA) aims to create a shared set of tools and processes to help companies build and certify Linux-based safety-critical applications and systems whose failure could result in the loss of human life, significant property or environmental damage. Attend the meeting to learn more about the project, get involved and ask questions to members of the ELISA Technical Steering Committee (TSC) including:

  • Philipp Ahmann, Chair of the ELISA TSC and a Project Manager at Robert Bosch GmbH
  • Kate Stewart, Vice President of Dependable Embedded Systems at the Linux Foundation

9:00 – 10:00 am – ELISA Project Overview
Join the ELISA mini summit for an overview of the ELISA project, the activities of the various working groups (WGs) and how the WGs interact and work together to tackle the challenges in advancing open source in safety-critical systems and bridge the gap between functional safety and Linux kernel development velocity.

10:00 – 10:15 am – Break (refreshments will be served)

10:15 – 11:00 am – Systems Working Group deep-dive
Take a deeper look into the Systems WG launched this year. Many products across various industries share the same architectural elements, including container technologies, RTOS requirements, or virtualization. This demands safety analysis at the system level. Understand why and how this WG is exploring the implications of using Linux in those mixed criticality systems by creating a reference system for further analysis. Learn also about collaboration with other open source communities such as AGL, Xen, and SPDX.

11:00 – 11:45 am – Automotive Working Group
Usage of Linux is common sense in many Automotive use cases such as infotainment, display clusters, or gateways. This session will describe elements needed to enable Linux in safety critical automotive use cases starting with warning signs of instrument clusters, also known as tell tales, and going forward the evolutionary path towards more complex use cases such as driver assistance. By framing use cases in a wider system context of a centralized vehicle computer architecture, it allows adopters a step-by-step approach to enable Linux in safety critical applications and to increase the responsibility of Linux in smaller chunks.

11:45am – 12:00 pm Open Discussions
Stick around for open discussions and Q&As with the speakers. The speakers will provide pointers to onboard those who are interested in collaborating to further the work of the ELISA project.

How to Register: Pre-registration is required, open to in-person attendees, and there is a $10 registration fee. To register for the ELISA Mini Summit, add it to your Open Source Summit Japan registration.
