If you haven’t already, check out Part I of our ASPICE 101 blog series to learn about what the standard is and why it’s important to automotive development. In this post, we take a look at ISO 26262 vs. ASPICE and examine the similarities and differences between these two important automotive standards. ISO 26262 vs. […]
When personal computers first came into common use in the 1980s, the closest a microchip came to an automobile was during transit to its final destination. Few consumers could have predicted there would come a time when their automobiles would be controlled by computer chips, much less have integrated technologies to manage everything from cell […]
This post on functional safety for autonomous driving is Part III in our three-part series with automotive expert Patrick Freytag. If you haven’t already, please go back and read Part I, which talks about how the automotive sector is changing – and Part II, which discusses ways to address functional safety. Since functional safety has […]
In the rapidly evolving automotive sector, driven by electrification and advanced driver assistance systems, ETAS NI Systems helps customers by designing, building, and servicing pre-integrated Hardware-in-the-Loop (HIL) systems. Started in 2019 when National Instruments and ETAS GmbH joined forces to create a new venture, ETAS NI Systems now employs around 50 people and serves the […]
My last blog post covered why and how the automotive sector is changing fast over the last few years – you can find that post here. A common expectation is that our future cars will be connected, automated, shared, and electric. In a current Motional Consumer Mobility report, Americans were asked what is their most […]
What is FMEA (Failure Mode and Effects Analysis)? Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) is a structured process for determining potential risks and failures of a product or process during the development phase. FMEA teams examine failure modes—those potential points of failure in a product or process — and what the failure effects (risks, harm, […]
Editor’s Note: This posts on autonomous vehicle development was originally published here by EE Times and written by Junko Yoshida. While this post was published in 2020, the content is still relevant to AV development in 2021. How many safety standards does it take to screw in the lightbulb in a highly automated vehicle? A few years ago, […]
With over 100 years of history, cars may be considered ‘legacy technology.’ They are everywhere, so everyone in the automotive industry should know how to develop them…right? History and Future of the Automotive Industry Cars have come a long way in the last 100 years. The first patented gas-fueled motor wagon of Carl Benz dates […]
In this post, we applaud Volkswagon and Argo AI for their plan to launch a self-driving electric taxi by 2025.
Experts discuss actions engineers can take to stay nimble, innovative, and reduce safety-critical mistakes throughout the development process.
