Functional Safety for Road Vehicles – ISO 26262:2018 Overview

The international standard ISO 26262 is used for ensuring functional safety of electric/electronic (E/E) systems used for implementing safety-related functionality in road vehicles.

The course will provide an overview of the application of the ISO 26262 standard for functional safety of E/E systems in the automotive domain.

The participants will get a basic understanding of the mindset of the standard, including how to identify and estimate the need for risk reduction in the E/E systems. Furthermore, the participant should get a general understanding of how to achieve and assess risk reduction, and the implications on supplier/customer relations.

Goal and purpose

The goal is to get an overview of the contents of the 12 parts of ISO 26262:2018, and an understanding of how to work with the standard and the reference lifecycle.

Target audience

The course is primarily suited for project leaders and engineers involved in the development of automotive E/E systems.


No previous detailed knowledge needed.
