Embracing ISO 26262: Efficient Verification Of Safety-Critical Hardware

How automotive suppliers can continue to advance their technology without sacrificing safety.

Automotive technology has come a long way since the days of the Ford Model T. Today’s smart vehicles not only assist their drivers with tasks such as parking, lane management, and braking, but also function as a home away from home, with WiFi hotspots and sophisticated entertainment systems. All of these features have been made possible by increasingly complex electronic systems. Welcome though these advances are, it is critical to note that the electronic systems enabling these features also present countless new opportunities for things to go wrong if they are not adequately verified. A defective headrest video screen may be an irritation to a young passenger in the back seat, but a malfunctioning corrective steering system could cost the occupants of the vehicle their lives.

This white paper examines the ISO 26262 automotive standard and its tenets, makes a case for its indispensability, and discusses how OneSpin’s formal verification solutions can help automotive suppliers continue to advance their technology while keeping drivers and passengers safe.
