Funktionale Sicherheit ISO 26262 Einführungskrus
Introduction Functional Safety


Introductory course

The ISO standard 26262 provides an internationally recognized reference for the development of electronic components and systems with a bearing on automotive safety. OEMs and suppliers must be able to prove to customers and regulatory authorities that electronic systems are safe and reliable – and that they fulfill the functions as required, despite growing complexity and the specialized nature of software.  

This course provides a systematic introduction to ISO 26262 and its practical application. If you were previously only partially knowledgeable about functional safety, ISO 26262, or maturity level models, this course will give you the complete overview you need to carry out your work in keeping with standard requirements and industry practice.
