Practical application of formal methods to support ISO 26262

The reliability of low-level software in safety-critical applications is extremely important. Proving program correctness and ensuring deterministic behavior of the code in automotive systems, especially in the context of ADAS and autonomous vehicles where the safety and security of the embedded code and firmware are paramount, is very challenging. The complexity of today’s automotive software requires more than just identifying the presence of potential bugs in the code to ensure the foolproof safety and security of vehicle onboard software. This presentation will examine practical applications of formal methods to guarantee automotive software safety and security for ISO 26262 compliance.
