What if a car crash is caused by a bug in the software?
The instrument cluster in the vehicle cockpit has undergone a major digitalization shift. As a byproduct, safety-critical information is no longer signaled to the driver via electric LED lamps but instead with graphical symbols on the digital screen: for example, the electronic parking brake tell-tale and the gear lever indicator (P/R/N/D) are such safety-critical information.
ISO 26262 Functional Safety Standard
How to foster safe user interfaces for cars?
- Kanzi Studio plugin allows the designing and workflow management of safety-critical UIs in the same tool with the rest of the non-safety-critical UIs
- Kanzi Safety Runtime component is used in the actual operational vehicle environment. Under the definitions given in ISO 26262 it is an ASIL-B compliant Safety Element out of Context (SEooC)
Proven software development processes to automotive industry
“Establishing ISO 26262 compliant software development is laborious, but now that the work is done, we are powered to scale and help automotive industry companies in their software engineering challenges,” points out Project Manager Petteri Kolppo from Tieto Automotive business.
