Innovations represent the next evolution of a rapidly shifting and highly competitive market. They also represent a much larger surface area for defects that impact the safety, security and reliability of the software.
Software coding standards like MISRA are longstanding. However, with the growth of advanced technologies like autonomous driving, it’s time to automate coding standards. Automotive technology innovations represent a rapidly changing, competitive market, but they also represent a bigger surface area for software defects with the potential to impact safety, security and reliability.
The industry’s distributed, multi-tiered production model complicates matters, with many vendors and suppliers contributing to software simultaneously. Quality control in a complex system is difficult, but necessary to prevent the introduction of additional risk. Businesses must act now to enact defect prevention.
