Let’s Get Smarter about Functional Safety Implementation

Any time a process-heavy requirement is mandated in any industry, you’ll usually see the following progression of events:

The following thought progression usually ensues:


  1. Oh no! - The process is mandated
  2. This is good enough! - Companies scramble to implement as well as they can to meet the minimum requirements
  3. Oops, this is expensive! - Over time, they determine they’ve implemented it in a very inefficient way and it’s costing way too much
  4. Let’s offshore it! – So they try to determine lower cost ways of achieving the same goal, like offshoring
  5. Well that didn’t work! – Cost is reduced but schedules are blown
  6. Let’s get smarter! – Efforts to optimize and automate are finally considered


ISO26262 functional safety is no different than other process-heavy mandates.


Here's a thought: What if everyone bypassed steps 2-5 and went straight to 6?

COLUMBUS, INDIANA ---Last November, LHP introduced the Functional Safety Expressway as a response to the new safety-critical regulations (ISO 26262) that are impacting the design and development of all on-highway vehicles, including trucks, buses, trailers, semitrailers, and motorcycles this year.

LHPTS knows that engineers and researchers working to optimize propulsion system performance need a comprehensive and flexible platform designed to evolve with today’s rapidly changing technology. With LHPTS’ ECS and ECS+, engineers and researchers have full authority over all the I/O going into the engine. There are no black boxes and nothing that is a mystery. Additionally, the ECS and ECS+ are inherently open-source platforms, which means users can easily tweak their tests and do whatever they need to do to improve performance.

Today, automotive researchers and engineers are constantly evolving their research to optimize propulsion system control technologies for the vehicles of tomorrow. At labs around the globe, R&D teams are heavily focused on improving fuel efficiency and reducing emissions through technology such as more efficient, user-friendly stop-start systems and mild hybrid powertrains.
