Highly automated and autonomous driving is giving rise to new requirements in the automotive sector, particularly with regard to safety-relevant functions. But which means do we need to use to meet these challenges? One possible answer to this question lies in the non-trivial implementation of the ISO 26262 standard, as Dräxlmaier Dräxlmaier describes by the example of on-board electrical systems development.
Expanding established standards
With the SAE level 3 “Conditional Automation”, the next milestone in the field of autonomous driving is getting closer: so-called highly automated driving. This development step is accompanied by a major change in situational awareness while driving: Instead of the driver, this task is now taken over by a wide variety of sensors.
