Verification of Safety Designs – Freedom from Interference with Steffen Keul | #QtWS23

Abstract: Safe operation of any embedded device is enabled by a rigorous architectural design. In ISO26262 mixed-ASIL systems, the architecture needs to ensure freedom from interference among the safety-related partitions and between safety-related and QM partitions. After a safety architecture has been defined and verified, static analysis can (and should) be used to demonstrate compliance between implemented source code and this architecture. This presentation highlights one way to apply an architecture check for the aspect of freedom from interference.

About the Speaker: Steffen Keul studied Software Engineering at the University of Stuttgart and gained experience with static analysis during his post-graduate research on static analysis of concurrent systems. For four years, he worked in product management and pre-development of automotive basic software with a focus on functional safety according to ISO26262. In 2017, he joined Axivion's Solution Engineering team. In this role, he strives to find the perfect static code analysis solution for every customer project. Litteraatti
