LHP Advances in the Autonomous Vehicle Space Announcing New Training Opportunities

Below is the press release announcing upcoming ISO 26262 training and FSCAE qualification exam dates. 


Columbus, IN., Jun,6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --LHP Engineering Solutions has been in the autonomous vehicle space for more than a year. LHP strives to deliver technological solutions that make the world a safer, smarter, and a more connected place. Passion surrounding the autonomous industry spurred when LHP’s CEO, David Glass, visited Columbus, IN basketball star Josh Speidel following an auto accident where he suffered a traumatic brain injury and other bodily injuries after his own car was struck by an SUV.

LHP’s role in the autonomous vehicle space is working with companies to help implement technology that enables autonomous controls leading to safer highways and greater mobility.  According to the US National Highway Safety Administration, a reported 94 percent of all auto accidents can be attributed to human error. Autonomous vehicles have the ability to process much more information than a human driver and make faster decisions that will make roads safer for all travelers and increase mobility for the elderly.

LHP has rapidly become a player in the autonomous vehicle space, specifically focusing on training needed to meet safety- critical industry standards for the self-driving car. “The automotive industry’s transformation is essentially asking the public to trust their lives to a computer and a machine,” says Zach McClellan, LHPU Division President. “Functional Safety in practical terms is defined as the steps engineers and organizations take to avoid failures that harm the public.”

LHP and TÜV Nord partnered to provide the Functional Safety Certification exam. Certifications are needed for safety critical products and engineering capability. LHP provides the training needed to pass the certification exam. Throughout the LHPU training program, participants are introduced to the ISO 26262 standard that will be expanded to include all road and passenger vehicles by the year 2018.

This program offers a unique three-stage approach to acquiring different levels of qualification based on different criteria. The training is provided in a 4-day format, with an option to take a TÜV Nord certification exam on the 5th day.

Training Dates:

Location: 2800 CenterPoint Parkway, Pontiac, MI 48431
July 31 – August 4, 2017
November 6 – November 10, 2017


Location: 1888 Poshard Dr. Columbus, IN 47203
October 16 – October 20, 2017


LHP is proud to contribute to the future of the automotive industry. The Functional Safety Certification course is only the beginning for LHP.

Today’s job market looks more different than it ever has before. Industries that our grandparents and great-grandparents once knew are becoming obsolete due to the rising trend in autonomy. Remember when you heard someone say, “robots will take over the world one day?” Well, they weren’t wrong, but maybe it’s not such a bad thing. The automotive industry is being propelled forward by technology and autonomous features, and the next job to be taken over by a robot is “driver.”

Do you remember years ago a toy train set that could be connected by magnets? The magnetic pull would force each individual train to follow the one that came before it. With enough magnetic pull, there would be three or four trains connected, following each other in the same path on the wooden train tracks. Now, let’s expand our thinking and apply this to today’s modern technology. Imagine you are driving down the interstate when you see three or four trucks following, no more than 10 feet behind the other. Except this time, they are not connected by a magnetic pull, but by IoT technology. According to the Washington Post, A wave of new technology intended to make trucks safer — using radar, cameras and reflective light scanning — is sweeping the industry. This new wave of technology is defined as platooning, and it is becoming very real in the trucking industry.

As automobiles continue to become cleaner, higher performing, and more reliable, their designs evolve. One critical system undergoing dramatic change is the fuel system; according to US EPA predictions, DI fuel systems in light-duty vehicles have been growing and are expected to grow to over 90% of the share of vehicles sold by 2025. As researchers and developers continue to innovate and look for engine solutions, understanding how to control these fuel systems is of the utmost importance.
