There is a current industry trend to build fully autonomous systems. To reach this goal, industry must manage complex software systems with high performance, safety and security requirements.
The operating system is non-differentiating in these systems and it is intended to be used multiple times over the whole product portfolio for a long time span. These conditions make it appealing to use Linux as robust open-source operating system. Based on the results of the SIL2LinuxMP project, the Linux Foundation has recently initiated the ELISA (Enabling Linux In Safety Applications) Project.

The talk shall sketch goals of this collaboration, the first identified challenges of addressing safety aspects in the Linux kernel and the plan how to tackle them. Beyond the Linux kernel, these points can also apply to open-source software in general. The project calls interested companies to participate in this new collaborative project to provide an attractive solution to the overall industry.
