ISO 26262 Functional Safety In the Automotive Industry

Date: 1/6/2014

ISO 26262 Road Vehicles Functional Safety Standard

ISO/DIS 26262 Functional Safety Standards to Manage Functional Safety and Regulate Product Development on a System, Hardware, and Software Level

ISO/DIS 26262 Road Vehicles Functional Safety Standard

ISO 26262 Road Vehicles Functional Safety Design StandardISO/DIS 26262 is the adaptation of IEC 61508 to comply with needs specific to the application sector of E/E systems within road vehicles. Functional safety features form an integral part of each product development phase, ranging from the specification, to design, implementation, integration, verification, validation, and production release. The standard provides guidance on automotive safety lifecycle activities by specifying the following requirements:

  • Functional Safety Management For Automotive Applications
  • The Concept Phase For Automotive Applications
  • Product Development At The System/Hardware/Software Level
  • Production, Operation, Service And Decommissioning
  • Supporting Processes
    • Safety Management Requirements
    • Change And Configuration Management,
    • Verification,
    • Documentation,
    • Use Of Software Tools,
    • Qualification Of Software Components,
    • Qualification of Hardware Components, And Proven-In-Use Argument.
  • Automotive Safety Integrity Level (ASIL)-Oriented And Safety-Oriented Analysis

Hardware, Software and System Development and Qualification in ISO 26262

  • Initialization Of Product Development
  • Specification Of Hardware And Software Safety Requirements
  • Hardware And Software Architectural Design
  • Unit Design,  Implementation And  Testing
  • System Integration And Testing
  • Verification Of System Safety Requirements


HMI Safety Products Meet Standards and Performance

Intelligent Embedded Video and Vision Systems Engineering and ServicesIncreasing complexity in the HMI hardware, electronic, and software systems used throughout automotive technologies has increased the complexity of achieving safety compliance for automotive manufacturers. New automotive standards like ISO 26262, released in November of 2011, aim to provide a common standard to measure how safe an automotive system will be in service.

AIS promotes standardization of material, facilities, and engineering practices for the purpose of improving Marine, Military, Oil and Gas, Railway, Machinery, Heavy-Duty and Specialty Vehicles safety standards, regulations, operational readiness, reduce total cost of ownership and acquisition cycle time. Industry standards state requirements in performance terms in order to make maximum use of technologies, products, and practices. AIS engineers manage design tools and methods; deliver intelligence, techniques and data; to drive innovation, collaboration and efficiency in product design. Learn More >
