The operating system is non-differentiating in these systems and it is intended to be used multiple times over the whole product portfolio for a long time span. These conditions make it appealing to use Linux as a robust open-source operating system. Based on the results of the SIL2LinuxMP project, the Linux Foundation has initiated the ELISA (Enabling Linux In Safety Applications) Project in the beginning of 2019. The talk shall sketch goals of this collaboration, the first identified challenges of addressing safety aspects in the Linux kernel and the plan how to tackle them. Now, one and half years in movement, we can report our first steps and discussion results, go much more into the detailed problems we face and share our insights based on our recent retrospective.
