Hear industry expert and Barr Group CTO Michael Barr discuss the latest startling statistics concerning embedded systems safety from Barr Group’s newly released 2018 Embedded Systems Safety & Security Survey. Based on responses from over 1,700 qualified professional designers of embedded systems, it has been determined that only 1 in 4 safety-critical device developers are following all industry-recommended software development best practices for increasing safety. The survey also indicates that overall, there has also been little progress in the last three years in tightening design processes to improve the safety of devices that can kill or injure. With nearly 30 percent of embedded systems designers creating devices that can potentially harm end users in the event of malfunction, this lack of improvement is a major concern for the industry.
