Auriga Participates in a Smart Factory Automation Project

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to revolutionize the way the world works. Just think of intelligent homes, connected vehicles, smart traffic control, and telemedicine! Many IoT applications are still years of technology improvements away, but the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) implemented in today’s factories is something early adopters can benefit from right now. The IIoT in manufacturing has the potential to generate so much business value that it will eventually lead to the fourth industrial revolution, already named Industry 4.0.

Embedded Software Testing: Is Your Organization a Leader or a Laggard?

It has never been as easy to get lost in the rapidly advancing tech environment as it is today, when the is penetrating nearly every aspect of our lives and new technologies are constantly emerging, producing disruptive avalanches of change. The world is evolving faster than ever, and those who cannot embrace the new reality and do not take the time to learn new skills will be left behind.

This simple truth is especially relevant in connection with embedded software testing, which has significantly changed in the last decade. Software testing has always been one of the most important phases in embedded systems development, requiring a heightened code coverage and security level. However, since the traditional waterfall model made way for continuous delivery, it has become the biggest challenge for many embedded developers.

The Future is Almost Here: Auriga Develops Computer Vision for Autonomous Driving

In many ways, 2016 was an important year for driverless vehicles full of historic moments. In that year, major automakers—from Daimler to BMW, Audi, and Hyundai—invested billions of dollars in autonomous vehicle development and worked in partnership with tech players to become leaders in the race for self-driving cars. It was the year driverless and semi-autonomous cars were made available to the public for the first time, at least in trial mode, and the year that sparked a hot debate on the challenges of self-driving mobility and car automation.

Not a Waterfall but a Whirlpool: Embedded Software Testing and Compliance Tracking in the Agile Era

Compliance with industry standards is not something you can skip or build in later—it is an integral part of the entire embedded software development process. It has always been crucial, considering that many industries—avionics, automotive, and healthcare, just to name a few—require highly sophisticated, safety- or life-critical embedded systems. In recent years, however, the role compliance tracking and embedded software testing play in the development cycle has greatly evolved, overturning the whole game’s rules. And when the rules of the game change, you have to change with them to win.

Why it Pays to be a Leader in Embedded Software Testing

Traditionally, or say 10 years ago, most organizations were functionally separated, and there was rarely cross-departmental integration between software engineers, test teams, and IT operations specialists. Departments usually had contradicting goals: developers sought new features, operations strived to ensure organizational stability, and testers wanted to minimize risks. However, the changing technology environment necessitates a change in the approach to the whole software development process.

Pros and Cons of Open Source Software in Healthcare

Over the past decade, health IT has evolved from an administrative mechanism to a clinical tool for improving the quality and efficiency of healthcare. Such cutting-edge technologies as the Internet of Things (IoT), cloud, big data, and artificial intelligence have made their way into the healthcare industry, and the rapidly growing scope of information shared has generated the need for accessible, affordable, and widely supported software development tools and technologies.

Developers Dissatisfied with Embedded Software Testing Approach

Embedded software testing has been a crucial component of software development since the first embedded systems and devices appeared. In the past, embedded applications operated in isolation, with no need to communicate with each other. However, today’s embedded devices and systems—from smartphones and fitness trackers to smart cars and sophisticated medical equipment—constantly communicate with each other, share information, and store loads of data. Due to the broad spread of IoT and other cutting-edge technologies, embedded software development and testing has shifted from a straightforward, predictable process to a complicated and challenging task.

Auriga Releases Open-Source HL7 Library

The amount of patient data generated by various medical devices, wearables, and healthcare apps grows every day. However, hospitals can make use of all this information only in case when their devices and software systems communicate via a common protocol. One of such protocols that allow healthcare apps to securely exchange sensitive patient clinical data with each other is Health Level 7 (HL7), – a globally accepted, widely accredited, and one of the most commonly used set of interoperability standards in the world.

Auriga has strived to become part of the HL7 expert community and enhance its expertise in health data interoperability. A year ago, Auriga launched a new in-house initiative on the development of an open-source library to provide interoperability for medical devices based on the HL7 protocol. In December 2016, our engineers finally released the solution.

Health InfoSec: The Wellbeing of the Healthcare Industry in the Era of Cyber-Attacks

The healthcare industry is going through a digital revolution. Hospitals pay more attention to technology than ever before. Both patients and professionals realize the benefits of telemedicine, mHealth, wearables, and smart devices and systems. Patient electronic medical records are entered online, letting patients access their own health data from home, helping doctors collaborate with each other remotely, and giving medical researchers access to millions of healthcare records.

But this transformation comes at the cost of security. Digital patient records have become a prime target for hackers due to the huge amount of sensitive information they contain. According to the newly released Study on Privacy and Security of Healthcare Data by the Ponemon Institute, nearly 90% of healthcare organizations experienced at least one data breach in the past two years, and 45% of them had more than five.

Five Signs That You Need to Reengineer Your Software

Taking advantage of the latest technologies has become the key to business competitiveness and the main challenge for manufacturers in all industries. In today’s fast-changing IT world, new software development technologies, methods, tools, and paradigms are constantly being developed: the benefits for first-movers are huge (in turnover, efficiency, and reputation alike), and the consequences for laggards devastating. Software reengineering, porting, and code refactoring may be a cost-effective way to keep your product up to date with the cutting-edge developments and thus competitive in the market. However, many businesses find it tricky to determine when their software needs to be enhanced. Here are five canaries in the coalmine that clearly show it is time to reengineer your software. Do you recognize any of them in your own company?
