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.

One of the most integral elements of the Hybrid Electrical Vehicle or HEV is the control technology. Due to these vehicles operating in a vast range of environments the motor will regularly switch through various loads. With that said, the most important issue is improving motor control efficiency while maintaining performance and avoiding damage. It’s wise to test control algorithms for motor control through simulation before applying power to any circuit. Especially when working with hundreds of volts and/or hundreds of amps of current. A simple mistake in your control algorithm can damage components or even worse cause collateral damage.

As driverless technologies rise to prominence, the safety and functionality of crucial automotive systems, is becoming an ever more pressing issue. Because of this, the embedded controls industry is on a lot of people’s minds. Even so, in some sectors, we are suffering from a lack of engineers with the right skill sets to drive the industry forward.
