ISO 26262 Training and Exam

What is Functional Safety in the Automotive Industry - ISO 26262?


The ISO 26262 Functional Safety Standard is an international safety standard of electric and/or electronic systems in production automobiles defined by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). 


As defined by TÜV-NORD, Producers of safety-relevant technical systems in the automotive industry are obliged to develop their systems according to all technical and scientific aspects of functional safety.


ISO 26262 defines the requirements of functional safety for electrical and electronic systems. Application of the mentioned standard lead to a correlating documented safety evidence of conformity.

  • In-depth interaction of safety-oriented hardware development processes

  • Under the FMEDA methodology, the following are presented:

    • Required safety demonstration methods

    • Calculation of Single-point fault metric & Latent fault metric

Day 4

Software Level Implementation of ISO 26262

ISO 26262 establishes further software-related requirements focused on Functional Safety. The workshop presents the additional demands including the relevant techniques and measures corresponding to the relevant ASIL made on software development and their practical implementation in an illustrative manner.

  • Briefing for all Software oriented personnel

  • Validation tools and applying COTS

  • Examples of architecture related to project and compiler considerations
