Ever-growing demand for functional safety implementations
Functional Safety is the part of the overall safety of a system that depends on that system operating correctly in response to its inputs, including the safe management of likely operator errors, hardware failures and environmental changes. Objective of Functional Safety is freedom from unacceptable risk of physical injury or of damage to the health of people either directly or indirectly through damage to property or to the environment.
Complexity in hardware and software of electric and electronic systems in modern vehicles increased due to year on year adding of functionality. The automotive industry needs to develop products using state-of-the-art technology to enhance quality and safety (ISO 26262). This growing demand for functional safety implementations includes all activities in the V-model, including bi-directional traceability of requirements and formal verification & validation of the developments across the V-model.
