TOYOTA InfoTechnology Center Japan has selected the SPARK language and SPARK Pro toolset for a high-reliability software research project. The goal of the project is to show that software requirements can be transformed into an implementation that can be proven to be free of run-time errors. This will have the key advantage of providing ultra-low-defect software for higher reliability in a vehicle component.

There recently have been some questions about how often the pages here are updated. We try to verify the information on the pages at least twice per year, and of course we add information as it becomes available. For instance, today we added a couple of free libraries (OpenGLAda and Yami4) that we had previously unintentionally left out. If you find any stale information on our site, please use the contact page to tell us about it.

AdaCore today announced the availability of its GNAT Pro Safety-Critical product for ARM Cortex micro-controllers. This bareboard GNAT Pro Safety-Critical product provides a complete Ada development environment, oriented towards systems that are safety-critical or have stringent memory constraints. Developers of such systems can now exploit the software engineering benefits of the Ada language, including reliability, maintainability, and portability.
