Top 10 Ways to Design Safer Embedded Software

Thursday January 26th, 2017 at 9:00 a.m. the IEEE Computer Society Toronto Chapter will be holding a Training Course: Top 10 Ways to Design Safer Embedded Software.

We are sorry to inform you that this event has been cancelled. We will attempt to reschedule the event later this year.

Abstract: Embedded systems are everywhere these days: from implantable medical devices to self-driving cars. The risks of human injury are also multiplying as more embedded systems connect to the Internet and become open to hacking as well as malfunction.

There are design techniques that can be applied to develop safer and more reliable embedded systems. As we consult with companies in a range of industries, we are continually surprised that such techniques–including the 10 techniques you will be exposed to in this course–are not more widely known and practiced.

Register today to join us at this important 1-day course where the focus is on minimizing the risk of injury or loss by firmware malfunction though a combination of lightweight, demonstrably-valuable design techniques.

RSVP is required. Visit https://events.vtools.ieee.org/meeting_registration/register/42587
