Is Linux ready for safety critical applications? Highly regulated fields, such as automotive, rail, and aerospace, are beholden to industry standards which are intended to ensure these systems are up to the task of protecting the human lives they are entrusted with. As they were written with much simpler systems and far less complex software in mind, they present a significant challenge to certifying modern CPUs and software stacks required for the next gerneration of safety critical applications.

The SIL2LinuxMP project strives to define and prove a path to Safety Integrity Level 2 certification for a minimal real-time Linux OS running on various multi-processor systems by mapping industry standards requirements to open-source development methodologies. Open-source provides for an unprecedented capability to audit not only the source, but the processes as well.
