SYSGO and Kontron to Develop Integrated Secure Platform For Safety-Critical Railway Apps

May 6, 2019 Alix Paultre

Kontron and SYSGO have started the development of an integrated platform for safety-critical railway solutions based on Kontron's SAFe-VX hardware running under SYSGO's real-time operating system PikeOS. It is already used in EN 50128/SIL-4 certified systems, on both single and multi-core architectures. Additionally, PikeOS has a separation kernel certified to EAL 3+ Common Criteria security standard.

Kontron and SYSGO have already identified several opportunities for autonomous train driving and rail signalling applications. "Both Kontron and SYSGO have extensive experience with safety-critical and certifiable systems for the railway market," said Markus Jastroch, Director Marketing Communication at SYSGO. "With our common platform, we offer developers the basis that meets the most stringent functional safety and embedded security requirements."
