ISO26262 Functional Safety

 

The inflation of complexities and challenges in the automotive realm has paved way towards adherence of safety standards. ISO26262 is one such international standard used in the automotive domain to achieve functional safety.

 

ISO26262 mandates safety principles, processes and methodologies to steer the product development at a hardware, software and system level. The possible hazards that may evolve from the malfunctioning of Electrical and/or Electronic (E/E) systems are identified and aimed to mitigate using the risk assessment carried out under ISO26262 Concept Phase. The functional safety and technical safety requirements are then derived in correspondence to the safety goals.

 

The outcome of the risk assessment leads to the determination of Automotive Safety Integrity Level (ASIL), decided by the Severity, Exposure and Controllability of the vehicle operating scenario. The safety requirements vital for the development of software are recognized by the ASIL.

Software Development Lifecycle

Picus Tech follows the stringent safety mechanisms requisitioned by ISO26262 in each phase of software development spanning requirements specification, software architectural design, unit design, implementation, integration, and testing. The reference V-model followed for software development lifecycle is as shown in figure above.

We review the customer requirements from each perspective and provide suggestions to strengthen the system functionalities. Being proficient in designing full-proof architecture, we also analyze it prior with the help of UML diagrams and pseudo codes. The development and test code are written using standard coding guidelines to ensure its efficiency.
