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... (More)

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. (Less)
