How Following Vital Industry Standards Makes Autonomous Vehicles Safer

July 6, 2021

Radical changes are propelling the automotive industry forward as electrification transforms vehicles from mechanical systems into electronic wonders. Massive advances in sophisticated electronics and computer systems are making self-driving cars a reality. In response, automotive manufacturers and suppliers have rallied around the concept of “functional safety” detailed in the evolving ISO26262 standard, which is set to transform the automotive design process for safety-focused electrical (E/E) systems. As vehicles become more autonomous and drivers increasingly reliant on electronics, the ISO26262 standard will ensure and enhance the safety of vehicles, individual systems, and their underlying components.
