Functional Safety for Train Control: How pre-certified products saved $2M and two years

Functional safety is a key requirement in industries where real-time performance goals and mission-critical reliability is imperative – like the railway transportation market. Achieving certification to functional safety standards brings a new dimension of challenges. Pre-certified products are emerging as part of the solution to address safety challenges.

In this webinar QNX and MEN will explain the unique architecture of the modular, open and SIL 4 pre-certified menTCS system for safe train control and how this solution addresses current railway transportation trends and safety challenges. Furthermore, we will show how the open architecture and separation of hardware from application software together with a safe BSP will save your development time and cost dramatically.
