The autonomous vehicle revolution promises many benefits. To name a few: eliminating virtually all accidents; drastically reducing traffic congestion; and providing an economical and environmentally friendly mode of transportation. However, if AVs are to achieve their full potential, interconnectivity is the key. AVs will need to communicate with each other, the surrounding infrastructure, and with a host of platforms.

Making legacy code fully compliant with MISRA C 2012[2] coding guidelines is a rather daunting task. The original MISRA principles were created to be applied as code being developed. Even the document itself has a warning "...a project that checks for MISRA C compliance late in its cycle is likely to spend a considerable amount of time re-coding, re-reviewing and re-testing. It's therefore expected that the software development process will require the early application of MISRA C principles.".[2] Full Article »
