About QT5.9 RTOS and safety. Some Unsolved question.
I plan to try qt5.9 on rtos linux system.
- witch type of rtos? there are many different kind of realtime systemo on Linux. RTLinux, Rtai, RTpreempt ....
- realtime features on qt5.9 is valid in Linux SO
- safety (SIL3) for machinery ... is possible to develop QT5.9 linux rtos certified for IEC61508 and IEC 62061 (excluding programming for motion control ... only GUI and safety information or push button for example .... send with safety bus a safety signal to a security PLC, or certified for safety custom made safety board, for example.....).
With Qt and the Qt Safe Renderer it is possible to create many different kinds of certified systems. While our initial focus is on automotive digital cockpits this solution is also applicable to medical and industrial automation systems. ISO 26262, IEC 61508 or IEC 62304 are some of the applicable standards that we are working to certify the new Qt Safe Renderer for.
Qt Safe Renderer works with Qt 5.9 and Creator 4.3, or later versions. For the target RTOS we are supporting INTEGRITY and QNX. On the silicon side we are supporting the NXP iMX6 and NVIDIA Tegra X1 with plans to to add support for Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 and Renesas H3. We can support alternative RTOS and processors on an as needed basis.
The Qt Safe Renderer and related tooling will become available as an add-on to the commercially licensed Qt.
