MISRA - coding standards and how embedded software should be developed

In the early 1990s it became obvious that electronics were becoming increasingly important in cars, and that software was becoming increasingly important in electronics. Today that challenge is even greater as the amount of software within a car can now extend to as much as 100 million lines of code. This white paper takes a look at the challenges posed by the increasing use of software in motor vehicles and provide guidance on how embedded software should be developed.
