On the Road to Functional Safety
ISO 26262 is an international standard that represents the “state of the art” in the development of automotive safety-related systems. Safety is one of the key issues in the development of automotive products and developing them according to ISO 26262 ensures they are designed with the appropriate level of rigor to achieve functional safety in their intended application.
LeddarTech is committed to safety: its products are developed to meet the requirements of ISO 26262 and are assessed by third parties to ensure compliance. Our LCA2 LeddarCore® is currently undergoing this rigorous third-party functional safety assessment and it is close to being certified in compliance with ISO 26262:2018.
The entire LeddarEngine platform will follow soon, with the same objective of passing the third-party assessment and obtaining its certification.
Getting our products ready for certification ISO 26262:2018 Road Vehicles – ASIL B functional safety
Complying with the ISO 26262 standard is required for developers of automotive hardware and software. Automotive Safety Integrity Level (ASIL) is defined by the ISO 26262 – Functional Safety for Road Vehicles standard. There are four ASIL levels identified by the standard: ASIL A, B, C, and D. ASIL D dictates the highest integrity requirements on the product and ASIL A the lowest.
ASIL B, an abbreviation of Automotive Safety Integrity Level B, refers to the classification of initial hazard (injury risk) defined within ISO 26262. LeddarTech’s LCA2 LeddarEngineTM has been designed to meet ASIL B functional safety requirements, applying the strict development process methodologies prescribed by ISO 26262.
The LeddarCore LCA2 SoC is currently undergoing this rigorous third-party functional safety assessment and is close to being certified. Once its development is completed and the product is tested with positive results, official product certification will be reached.
The LeddarEngine Platform currently under development is also targeting to be certified ISO 26262.
