Podcast: Testing Does Not Equal Safety

Guest: Phil Koopman, associate professor at Carnegie Mellon University

We asked Phil: How do you prove safety for computer-based vehicles that depend on software?
Phil responds: Testing doesn't make you safe, it never has, and it never will. Not for software…The way you get safe is not by testing. You get there with safety engineering, doing the hazard analysis, making sure you mitigate hazards. [In short] testing doesn't prove you safe. The testing proves that all the work [you’ve done] for safety didn't let anything slip through.
