ISO 26262 Road Vehicles Functional Safety – For Leaders

Course Code: AUT 101


Course Description:

Electronic systems carry out many functions in modern automobiles, including driver assistance functions, vehicle dynamics control, and active/passive safety systems. The complexity of electronically-driven operations, especially safety functions, makes predicting safety performance extremely difficult. More action will be required, furthermore, to reduce the risks of systematic and random hardware failures as system complexity continues to increase.

ISO 26262 is a functional safety standard intended to be applied to the development of software for electrical and/or electronic (E/E) systems in automobiles. ISO 26262 is an adaptation of the broader IEC 61508 safety standard, which has been used to derive safety standards for the nuclear power, machinery, railway, and other industries. It is aimed at reducing risks associated with software for safety functions to a tolerable level by providing feasible requirements and processes.

Avoiding the very detailed execution activities recommended in ISO 26262, this course offers senior automotive leadership team members a practical and accessible overview of the concepts and activities required to successfully deploy, achieve and maintain ISO 26262. 

With lots of opportunity for questions and worked examples, this course examines:

  • typical approaches to ISO 26262
  • roadblocks and conceptual challenges often faced by engineering teams
  • how to achieve ISO 26262 in a massively scaled organization
  • techniques for dealing with fast paced new product development

Target Audience

  • Automotive Engineering Manager, Director, Executive
