A Comparative Analysis of Aviation and Ground Vehicle Software Development Standards

A Comparative Analysis of Aviation and Ground Vehicle Software Development Standards

The integration of software into transportation systems requires the adoption of safety standards and software development systems. There are several different safety standards that could be applied based on the specific category of use.

This paper evaluates two different safety development standards and provides a high level comparison between a well-used standard for aviation and a more recent standard for automotive that can be applied to other transportation systems with no available standards.

Topics covered in this paper:

  • Adoption of aviation function safety SW to automotive processes
  • Software architecture, design, and implementation
  • Real life software process integration
  • Support tools
  • And more…
