Abstract

The popularity of Open Source Software (OSS) has
increased the interest in using it in safety critical applications.
The aim of this study is to review research carried out on usage
of open source code in development of safety-critical software
and systems. We conducted a systematic mapping study through
searches in library databases and manual identification of articles
from open source conferences.We have identified 22 studies about
using open source software, mainly in automotive, aerospace,
medical and nuclear domains. Moreover, only a few studies
present complete safety systems that are released as OSS in
full. The most commonly used OSS functionalities are operating
systems, imaging, control and data management. Finally most of
the integrated OSS have mature code bases and a commit history
of more than five years.
