Training Aims to Improve Safety-Critical Embedded Systems Design

GERMANTOWN, Maryland --- Barr Group announces a new one-day training course to help embedded software development teams build safer products. The new course, “Top 10 Ways to Design Safer Embedded Software,” focuses exclusively on valuable techniques that engineers should use to create more reliable product designs.

The growing integration of embedded systems into traditionally non-programmable devices has created an environment where the potential for human injury and property damage resulting from software malfunctions and device hacks is rapidly expanding. Yet, according to the results of the 2016 Embedded Systems Safety & Security Survey, far too few engineers working on safety-critical embedded device designs are acting responsibly.

“The opportunity for embedded software to kill or injure is growing as software control becomes the norm in safety-critical devices such as automobiles, pacemakers, trains, and many others,” said Andrew Girson, Barr Group CEO. “Our new ‘Top 10 Ways to Design Safer Embedded Software’ course teaches cost-effective techniques that can be applied to repeatedly develop safer, more reliable embedded software. To ensure that as many embedded software engineers as possible are exposed to these critically important design techniques, we have decided to price this course at just $99 and will be teaching it multiple times this year in North America and Europe.

Barr Group’s one-day “Top 10 Ways to Design Safer Embedded Software” course will be taught in four locations this Fall:

September 20 – Tysons Corner, Virginia
September 22 – San Francisco, California
October 10 – Chicago, Illinois
November 9 – Munich, Germany
