QtWS17 - Functional safety with Qt and Qt Safe Renderer, Tuukka Turunen, The Qt Company

Tuuka Turunen goes into detail of functional safety and the Qt Safe Renderer in his talk at Qt World Summit 2017. Qt is used in an extremely wide variety of use cases across multiple industries, including various safety critical systems. When a system, be it a medical device, a railway control system, or a car, can potentially cause harm to humans, functional safety helps in assessing the risk and taking the necessary measures to steer the risk to an acceptable level. This presentation briefly introduces the key concepts of functional safety and explains how to use Qt and the upcoming Qt Safe Renderer in a system certified for functional safety according to IEC 61508 and ISO 26262.
