A good step by step breakdown of the process while not getting bogged down in technical details. The approach seems workable but the hard parts are the actual implementation. Thanks for a well written article!

This is interesting, and the example of hazardous failure of the power seat points out the large number of hazards provided by the convenience functions added to the vehicle. Even more important is the linking of the concerns to the fact that the primary parameter is profit, with all others, including safety, a distant second in importance. This is an eye-opening article, indeed.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
