“Lunch with APRA Europe: ISO 26262 - Functional safety - how remanufacturers are affected (members-only)”

Speaker: Lorenzo Gaspari (CPI/BORG Automotive) 

The ISO 26262 covers functional safety for electric and/or electronic (E/E) systems that are installed in series production road vehicles, excluding mopeds. Functional safety is a general approach to make car electronics safe and to provide guidelines to protect users from injuries caused by faults in electronics and electric systems.

ISO 26262 series of standards includes guidance to mitigate these risks by providing appropriate requirements and processes. The standard therefore addresses the complete system and its safety architecture, e.g. the redundancy of sensor signals.

Functional safety of automotive systems including E/E is and will be a very relevant topic for the years to come. Indeed, current automotive trends such as emission reduction, powertrain electrification, connected vehicles and Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) increase the number and the complexity of E/E systems found in passenger cars. 

Also, software is now commonly used in safety-critical components of automobiles; such software needs to be safe, secured and reliable.

The starting point of the standard is the Hazard Analysis and Risk Assessment (HARA), which is carried for the subject of the development. From this analysis, the Safety goals are determined, and an Automotive Safety Integrity Level (ASIL) is more:
