Functional Safety Engineering

Protecting humans from system malfunction

Everyone in the automotive industry has the responsibility of considering human safety in the development of their products. Indeed, the reduction of unacceptable risk must be designed into all products from the concept stage. Functional safety must be a design decision.

At AVL, this consideration is built into all of our products and services. The ultimate goal is to improve functional safety in vehicles.
 

Liability, Compliance, Care and Responsibility


AVL provides a wide range of solutions within the whole functional safety lifecycle of processes and technical solutions, from concept right through to series production. As well as our engineering services and product portfolio, this offering also includes training and coaching relating to functional safety. This is all carried out in compliance with:

  • ISO26262 – Road Vehicles – Functional Safety
  • ISO25119 – Tractors and machinery for agriculture and forestry
  • ISOPAS21448:2019 – Road Vehicles – Safety of intended functionality


Our functional safety engineering competence is based upon many years of experience in this area. We not only support the establishment of complete safety architectures for conventional, hybrid and electric powertrains, but we are ready for future autonomous vehicles, too.

This means that when you use our products and services in your development projects, you can feel confident that you are in compliance with the required safety regulations. Throughout the development process, we ensure that safety standards are supported with thorough risk assessments, as defined by the FMEA, FTA and FMEDA.
 

A Compliant Safety Process


Our safety processes are well integrated into all of our system, hardware and software solutions. We take great care and responsibility to ensure that this is done in a way that does not impact the budget restrictions of your project.

Supported by our global network of Competence Centers for Functional Safety, we can ensure that functional safety is considered throughout your development along the v-cycle. Already proven in a wide range of applications with customers throughout the world, we are proud to be the industry’s partner in creating a bright, safe automotive future.
