Confidence in Numbers - What it Means to be ISO 26262 ASIL Compliant



As autonomous vehicles evolve from research to prototypes to real cars on the road, functional safety and ISO 26262 have become central topics in the automotive industry. Although the first edition of the standard was released seven years ago, there still are differences in opinions and actual practices on what it means to be ISO 26262 compliant. The level of diligence to which safety considerations are institutionalized, and designed into the product, could also differ for two products with the same ASIL claim. Join BlackBerry QNX, a leader in functional safety for embedded software, to explore this topic and learn:

  • The differences between compliant, certified and certifiable
  • How to determine if a product lives up to its ISO 26262 claim
  • How to mitigate risk of non-compliance and reduce development and certification costs
