When Software Goes Wrong - A City Metro System
Show Notes

In this fifth podcast about the impact of software failures on railway asset safety, I talk with Dr Emma Taylor about the causes behind an accident that happened during testing on a city metro system. In this episode we highlight some of the failures as they relate to the stages in the V-model that is, or should be, applied to the software development lifecycle. A set of processes that is particularly important for verification and validation during the development, testing and implementation of complex software-based systems.
