Automotive Functional Safety: No Hiding Place

A modern vehicle has over 100 million lines of code, that’s more than a Space Shuttle and the Large Hadron Collider. To make the necessary driving decisions, autonomous vehicles use sophisticated software running on the most powerful CPUs ever seen in the automotive industry. Since these processors are pushing the edge of performance and are prone to occasional failures, reliability has become a concern. In addition, the role that software is being asked to take can lead to problems caused by subtle software interactions. The occurrence of such hardware and software errors in an autonomous driving system can impact the system’s safety. So how can we mitigate the impact of these errors? Download the whitepaper
