Inria has started a joint project ‘CertiViBE’ with Mensia Technologies to make the core foundation of OpenViBE medically certifiable. The project aims at an OpenViBE kernel and a set of core signal processing modules that have been subjected to strict ISO quality procedures and testing. Rigorous documentation of these components is another strong focus point of the project. The resulting OpenViBE is expected to be more reliable, easier to understand, and streamlined in its source code. Finally, third parties will be able to obtain a separate dual license of the certifiable core for implementing full medical applications. For the community, OpenViBE – including its certifiable core – will remain open source.
