Functional safety has been standardized as ISO-26262 for safety and functional parts in the integration, verification, and validation process of the embedded automotive software development. This standardization is used to achieve safety goals and safety requirements of the product to prevent system malfunction from predictable errors, problems, and hazards by risk analysis. The software components and units are classified into 5 main levels of risk Quality Managed (QM) and Automotive Safety Integrity Level (ASIL A to D).
Increasing demand for an immense number of complex functionalities is directly affecting the code quality in safety-critical embedded software in the automotive industry. To be able to keep up with state-of-the-art technology and maintain fail-safe software that protects the user from any foreseeable harm requires detailed fail-safe design & implementation.
The expertise area of NISO is securing software development in this context and management of safety anomalies to deliver turn-key software solutions.
