Automotive functional safety and security testing, certification and regulatory framework

With the PACE (personalized, autonomous, connected and electric) trend taking the automotive sector to greater heights, 360° digitization of this industry is a turning point. Traditionally, this industry has been driven by quality-based practices. With the electronics and software content increasing in today’s cars, design and manufacturing practices are also evolving to address the safety and security challenges. In recent times, global standards bodies have come up with new risk-based standards (ISO 26262, ISO/SAE 21434, SOTIF, etc) and a global automotive regulatory framework. The speaker will discuss the current progress in functional safety and security standards and regulatory progress.
