Automotive Functional Safety ISO 26262 Training Bootcamp by Tonex

Automotive Functional Safety ISO 26262 exists because automotive technology has surged over the past 25 years.

This has predictably led to compliances. In 2011, the Automotive Functional Safety ISO 26262 standard was published, designed for the specific risk picture of the automotive industry and road vehicles. Its intent is to ensure the design and construction of functionally safe vehicles and efficient safety management through the supply chain.

ISO 26262 has become increasingly important because electronic Systems support the human driver or can even take over critical tasks to control the vehicle. This leads to increased risks from systematic failures and random hardware failures of these systems. ISO 26262 provides guidance for the automotive industry to mitigate these risks.

The ISO 26262 standard is a weighty series of documents that many believe has all the force of law or regulation; however, it is not a dictate. It is an agreement on best practices for participants in the vehicle value chain to follow to ensure safety as far as the industry understands it today.

ISO 26262 requires that hardware and software safety concerns be addressed and documented throughout the product lifecycle. Though safety design was considered part of general requirements activity in the past, hardware and software teams working in isolation in automotive development does not guarantee the kind of functional safety coverage required by ISO 26262.

Using ISO 26262 to evaluate the safety of your vehicle’s electrical and electronic components provides multiple benefits to automotive original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and suppliers, such as:

  • Demonstrate due diligence and ensure overall safety of the respective vehicle and/or the corresponding systems in compliance with ISO 26262
  • Maintain your competitive advantage in interpreting and implementing the ISO 26262 requirements correctly
  • Minimize the risk of harm to people and non-acceptance of your products by the market
  • Avoid costly product recalls and reputational damage due to safety hazards because insufficient safety assurance
  • Simplified access to global markets by ensuring compliance with relevant international regulations

The entire area of functional safety is important because the systems covered under functional safety are designed to automatically prevent dangerous failures or to control them when they occur. It helps us to design a system that can execute specific functions correctly, even under non-intended use (or sometimes even misuse).

Automotive Functional Safety ISO 26262 Training Bootcamp Course by Tonex

Automotive functional safety ISO 26262 training covers the background of ISO 26262 standard, its scope, the main differences from IEC 61508 (the general safety standard), and how the scope varies with adding new systems.

Automotive functional safety ISO 26262 training provides an overview of all sections of ISO 26262 and its impact. Automotive functional safety ISO 26262 training helps you prepare for ISO 26262 by presenting the details of ISO 26262 in a practical way. This hands-on seminar will give you the all the information you need to implement ISO 26262.

What is ISO 26262?

ISO 26262 is a Functional Safety standard that is a modification of the general safety standard IEC 61508 for the specifics of Automotive Electric/Electronic Systems.

ISO 26262 is applied to safety related systems that contain one or more EE systems installed in passenger cars with a maximum gross vehicle mass up to 3,500 kg.
