Embedded Experts to Discuss "What We Can Learn from Past Safety-Critical Firmware Failures"

GAITHERSBURG, Md., Aug. 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Barr Group, a global leader in the safety and security of embedded systems, announced today that CTO Michael Barr and Principal Engineer Dan Smith will host an upcoming free embedded software webinar entitled Safety-Critical Firmware – What Can We Learn from Past Failures?

The 60-minute webinar on September 9th, 2014 at 1PM EDT will provide examples of past high-profile software failures in safety-critical embedded devices. The goal is to gain a better understanding of what happened and how better embedded software development techniques can be applied to reduce the likelihood of future failures.

"Safety-critical firmware failures happen all too often, despite many well-known techniques for reducing the likelihood of these incidents," said Barr, a noted industry expert and former adjunct professor at the University of Maryland. "Barr Group's webinar will examine prior failures with an eye towards what could have been done to avoid these failures."

"As embedded devices play a larger role in everyday life, the importance of high-quality safety-critical firmware is soaring," said Smith. "All of us as professional embedded firmware developers should be humbled by this fact and learn all we can from past failures, so we can create more reliable devices in the future."

More details on all Barr Group training courses and information on registering for the "Safety-Critical Firmware – What Can We Learn from Past Failures?" webinar is available at
