Embedded Automotive Systems Using ISO 26262

Embedded Automotive Systems Using ISO 26262 (ISO 26262 Engineer Course)

 “Learn about this important standard from the world’s  leading international functional safety experts who were  directly involved in preparing the standard.” This course is newly updated for Edition 2 and provides the latest insights and updates on the standard from the world’s leading international functional safety experts who are directly involved in preparing the standard. Since the publication of ISO 26262 in 2011, it has been rapidly accepted as the “state of the art” in developing safety-related electrical and electronic systems in road vehicles. Edition 2 of the standard is now close to publication with scope extensions to the majority of road vehicles (trucks, buses and motorcycles are now all in scope) as well as additional guidance on application of the standard to the design of semiconductor devices.
