Track: ESC - Embedded Software Design & Verification

Format: Technical Session

Civil engineers have learned how to avoid failure from their rich history of bridge collapses, tunnel flooding, and building disintegrations. The firmware world is quite different; it seems we all make the same mistakes, repeatedly, yet most problems have similar root causes. In this session, we'll examine a number of embedded disasters, large and small, and extract lessons to improve our code.
