Abstract

The importance of software in machinery continues to grow as hardware functions are replaced with software and the number of safety functions increases. This has crucial consequences for machine safety. Software failure in safety-critical areas, such as driveby-wire systems, automated stability control and control of automated guided vehicles (AGVs), can result in accidents, fatalities and costly material losses.
