On Using Blockchains for Safety-Critical Systems


Today’s industries in various domains are becoming more and more driven by software as innovator. They range from web applications powering our increasingly digitalized daily lives to deeply embedded systems driving complex and safety-critical cyber-physical systems (CPS) as in, for example, self-driving vehicles. Companies need to continuously rejuvenate their product portfolio for adopting new ideas to remain competitive. A recent idea that is permeating from its original application domain of financial use cases are blockchains, where researchers and companies try to apply key ideas behind them to other domains.
