Static Analysis, Railway Safety Critical Software, and EN 50128

Transportation systems (railway systems in particular) are a growing market that increasingly relies on software for command, communication, and control. Due to the impact of errors and accidents in this environment, software is developed to strict standards, including EN 50128. This standard is very specific on the use of good programming practices, tools, and techniques.

This paper discusses safety-critical software affordability and how static analysis tools like GrammaTech’s CodeSonar increase developer productivity and satisfy various EN 50128 requirements.
