Embedded software for automotive application has increased in complexity, there is a need to revisit and upgrade the conventional design approach to fulfilling the functional safety objectives.
Automotive electronics are becoming more sophisticated and technologically advanced every day. Because of this, it is increasingly complex to analyze failures and create a failsafe system which complies with functional safety standards such as ISO 26262. Automotive companies are most concerned with malfunctions of electrical and electronic systems that could result in human fatality, significant warranty cost and/or recalls. Understanding product development lifecycle and aligning it with the safety implementation is key to the successful release of any automotive safety related product.
LHP and Jama Software have partnered to ensure our visionary clients comply with all relevant functional safety and cybersecurity standards — like ISO 26262 and SAE J3061 — by seamlessly integrating compliance into the product development process.
When using an advanced driver-assistance system (ADAS) in a vehicle, automotive manufactures and researchers don’t just need to know if the system meets all specified requirements; they also need to know if the system really does what it was intended to do, even in changing environmental conditions. One of today’s most common automotive testing standards, ISO 26262, which is the common standard for defining functional safety for electronic and electrical systems throughout their lifecycles, falls short in this area.
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.
COLUMBUS-INDIANA- MAY 14, 2018 - LHP Engineering Solutions, an engineering services provider and technology integrator has brought together Instruments, PTC, and AASA’s LiFi subsidiary, 01LightComm, to create a framework for an NI-Based Functional Safety and Cyber Security Validation Platform. The demonstration addresses the universal automotive principles of Functional Safety violations resulting from Cyber Security compromises. The impactful automotive demonstration leverages the existing technology available in today’s market, introduces LiFi as a viable V2X communication option, and addresses the specific automotive Functional Safety risks in a Cyber Security realm.
Just as in Aerospace, the International Standards Organization has created the functional safety standard, ISO 26262, for the automotive industry. Questions remain surrounding ISO 26262 implementation and how it is used. Functional safety experts weigh in on tips and facts surrounding the standard.
LHP Engineering Solutions has announced the creation of the Functional Safety Expressway (FSXpressway) 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 in 2018.
LHP Engineering Solutions, a U.S. based engineering services provider, and Model Engineering Solutions (MES), a German based vendor of quality tools for model-based development, are pleased to announce an exclusive partnership. This partnership will allow LHP to present MES’s unique training materials in the U.S.
