Whether in traffic control, train protection or on-board systems – embedded systems are becoming more important everywhere. In rail transport in particular, software errors can cause immense costs – be it through product recalls that can damage the reputation – or, far worse, by harming people’s lives. Here in particular, software quality must become part of every company DNA, otherwise there is a risk of great damage.
The standards for rail technology:
The standards in the railway sector are among the toughest in the world. CENELEC (the European Committee for Electrotechnical Standardization) has created the main standard EN 50128. The international version of this is IEC 62279. The content of both standards – EN 50128 and IEC 62279 – are identical.
The EN 50128 standard outlines procedures and technical requirements for the development of programmable electronic systems for use in railway applications. It can also be used for all other cases where security is an issue.
The standard also requires the use of programming standards such as MISRA and CERT.
