Figuring out the Fundamentals of Functional Safety
As systems and the software that controls them become more complex, ensuring that these systems perform safely and as-designed is of the utmost importance. Hundreds of connected systems enable safety-critical functions like braking, acceleration, steering, navigation and communication. The systems covered under functional safety are designed to automatically prevent dangerous failures or to control them when they occur. Functional safety analysis helps design a system that can execute correctly, even under a failure or non-intended use.
