The Art of Safe Updates: Strategies for Edge Device Maintenance

The escalating desire for feature-rich vehicles has transformed contemporary automobiles into a vast landscape of high-performance computing systems, cutting-edge devices, intricate sensors and actuators. As a consequence, the significance of functional safety has reached unprecedented levels. 


What is functional safety?


Automotive functional safety involves putting in place protective measures to eliminate or reduce the severity of hazards that may arise due to failures of a vehicle. This is critical to ensuring the safety and reliability of automotive systems, protecting both the occupants of the vehicle and others on the road.


About the ISO 26262


Introduced in 2011 and revised in 2018, ISO 26262 outlines the criteria necessary to attain functional safety across the entire lifecycle of a product. This standard offers a specialized, risk-driven methodology for determining Automotive Safety Integrity Levels (ASILs), spanning from ASIL-A (demanding minimal risk reduction) to ASIL-D (mandating significant risk reduction) in the automotive domain. It covers various aspects including risk assessment, safety goals, risk reduction measures, validation and verification processes.
