Solutions for Developing Safety-critical Automotive Systems

Helping Solve Product Development Challenges at Leading Automotive Companies

With embedded software developed independent of the hardware it will eventually run on, automotive product designers and developers face unique challenges. Managing this dual track development of complex systems requires strong integration between development teams and across tools to ensure product quality and regulatory compliance.

3 Ways Software Could Put the Brakes on the Driverless Car

Driverless cars are coming. First, Google started testing them, and now Ford, MIT, and Stanford have teamed up to develop the technology. But in a recent Harris poll commissioned by Seapine Software, 88 percent said they would be worried about riding in a driverless car. Some were concerned about who would be liable in an accident, but most concerns related to software. Here's three ways in which survey respondents indicated that software could put the brakes on their getting into a driverless car.

Use the Windshield, Not the Mirror: Predictive Metrics that Drive Successful Product Releases

If your development team only looks at reactive data like testing results and bug counts, they're not predicting problems that will impact product quality or delay release. Find out how the right combination of predictive and reactive metrics can help build a measurement portfolio that improves product quality and release consistency.

5 Keys to Improving Visibility into Risk

Conducting risk analysis and implementing mitigation strategies is hard work that often goes to waste. Too many times, much of the risk management work ends up locked away in spreadsheets, hidden from the team as product development progresses. Join us for this 45-minute webinar and learn about the five keys to improving the visibility of risk analysis and mitigation measures throughout the development cycle.
