Enabling Linux in Safety Applications

In order to meet safety requirements for autonomous vehicles at all times, the industry needs to manage highly complex software systems with high performance, safety and security requirements. The operating system is non-differentiating in these systems and it is intended to be used multiple times over the whole product portfolio for a long time span. These conditions make it appealing to use Linux as robust open-source operating system.
