To ensure that nobody is harmed by malfunctions, the ISO 26262 safety standard defines a methodology for the proper development of safety-critical systems in the car. The standard requires a comprehensive safety management system over the vehicle’s life cycle, from the concept phase to the junkyard. The ISO 26262:2018 also defines necessary activities and outcomes as well as appropriate methods in development and production.
