Embedded software is increasingly used in the Automotive industry to differentiate vehicles and improve safety. New vehicles average over 10 million of lines of code in connected Engine Control Units and infotainment systems. The costs of software failure in recalls, brand reputation and even loss of life; together with increasing adoption of international standards are driving industry leaders to improve safety-critical software quality.
