The use of microprocessors performing safety tasks such as Automatic Train Protection systems made more difficult their safety-worthiness assesment. In this paper we will first examine how the microprocessors have been used in safety applications in land transport field and we will proceed to a comparative examination of different basic architectures and present according to significant criteria a qualitative analysis.
