Lessons Learned Developing ISO 26262 Supervisory Controllers for EV/HEV

Available On-Demand Until: May 24, 2019

This 30-minute Webinar shares lessons learned during the development of several EV/HEV controllers including the M560 OpenECU – from prototyping through production – while satisfying ISO 26262 ASIL D safety goals. An overview of the development experience shows specific areas where satisfying ISO 26262 is not as technically difficult as it is culturally challenging. It also discusses the importance of balancing prototyping activities to support aggressive automotive project schedules with the diligence required for functional safety.

This will be followed by a technical discussion focused on specific examples demonstrating that the benefit of understanding full system requirements (both safety and non-safety) cannot be underestimated. For instance, considering the entire system, rather than just functionality of the VCU in isolation, results in simpler, more cost-effective controller architecture.

The webinar ends with an audience Q&A.
