Improvements in the automotive industry are introducing challenges related to management, software development, and safety requirements. The safety requirements involve both products and processes, the latter requirements stemming from regulations and standards such as ISO 26262. The OpenCert toolkit helps engineers define safety cases, manage evidence, and comply with ISO 26262. The development of a Safety Element out of Context (SEooC) based on a Hall-effect sensor illustrates this tool's use. SEooCs are reusable and are particularly demanding regarding process requirements and the associated information. This article is part of a theme issue on Automotive Software.
