Developing a safe system is a challenging and difficult task, one where design decisions can literally have life or death consequences. Often, there is uncertainty on how to best achieve safety. Standards are helpful, but can put unintentional blinders on developers when they concentrate on the hoops they need to jump through instead of the end goal of an appropriate level of safety and dependability. It’s important to keep the big picture in mind so that engineers and product managers can find a cost-effective way to provide safety while employing critical best practices, managing development cost, and minimizing risk.
Edge Case Research has developed a program that can help keep you on track by providing a base of knowledge that your development teams can use to make better design decisions. Our team has worked on everything from autonomous vehicles to industrial power systems to consumer smart thermostats; we can offer you the ability to implement safety properly and deploy with confidence.
