Overview

OPENCOSS is an European large scale integrating FP7 project. The project aims to produce the first European-wide open safety certification platform: an Open Platform for EvolutioNary Certification OSafety-critical Systems. The purpose of the platform is to reduce time and cost for (re)certification of safety-critical embedded systems, in particular for the railway, avionics and automotive markets. 

 

Abstract

Safety assurance and certification are amongst the most expensive and time-consuming tasks in the development of safety-critical embedded systems. ...

 

Objectives

OPENCOSS will devise a common certification framework that spans different vertical markets for railway, avionics and automotive industries...

 

Impact

The evolutionary and compositional approach of OPENCOSS are expected to dramatically reduce costs and time for re-certification...
