What is Functional Safety in Automotive? What is the role of ISO26262 Standard?
- A number of components of a car are safety critical; like, Electronic Steering System, Anti-lock Braking System, Air-bags, electronic stability control, and more.
By safety critical, we mean that the failure of these components can risk the driver or the passengers’ life.
ISO26262 is a standard that defines a framework to implement safety practices during the design, development, and the testing of all the critical electrical and electronic components of a road vehicle. This standard has been derived from IEC61508.
ISO26262 standard comprises of a set of steps that regulate the product lifecycle at the software and the hardware level. ISO26262 provides an extensive set of recommendation for automotive product development, right from the conceptualization to the decommissioning stage.
What is ASIL in Automotive Functional Safety?
ASIL (Automotive Safety Integrity Level) is the notation for software or hardware component that signifies its safety-criticality.
ASIL has four categories- ASIL A, ASIL B, ASIL C, and ASIL D. ASIL A indicates least critical level and D indicates the most critical level. There are three factors that determine the ASIL of a software or hardware- probability of exposure, controllability by the driver, and the severity of the outcome if a fault occurs.ASIL A is almost equivalent to QM level, therefore, ASIL B is usually the minimum requirement, in order to make your product complaint with ISO 26262 Standard for Functional Safety.
Considering the example of an Air-Bag, the analysis will look into how likely it is for the air bag to get activated, what will be the effect on car and how can the driver control it. Considering all these factors, ASIL will be determined, which will most likely be ASIL-D for Air- Bags.
ASIL is determined at the beginning of the automotive software development with the help of HARA. However, it can be done post the development also, but is not recommended. Based on the ASIL rating, safety processes and testing regulations are followed- strictest for D and flexible for A.
