The Rust language has been gaining popularity in recent years for its safety, performance and concurrency features. However, certified Rust toolchains have been missing for applications in safety-critical markets like automotive. This gap is being addressed by Ferrocene, a Rust compiler toolchain. Ferrocene promises to be ISO26262 functional safety standard compliant for the electronic systems in road vehicles; an effort to qualify the language and toolchain for use in such domains is already underway. We're excited by its progress and the availability of such safety-compliant tools will certainly speed up the adoption of Rust in the automotive industry.
