ISO 26262 Functional Safety

Automotive Market

The Problem

With the advent of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and Autonomous Driving (AD), an automobile today can contain up to 200M lines of code (+500M by 2025) with interactions between over 150 control units. This considerable number of interactions combined with the complexity of the functionality being implemented significantly raises safety concerns. To address these concerns ISO 26262 Functional Safety was developed for the automotive industry, and it defines a framework of development through the specification of safety requirements.

This standard defines new ways of developing, validating, and verifying software systems within the automotive industry, and systems and subsystem makers will require external support in order to embark efficiently and very rapidly into these new platforms.
