3 Reasons Functional Safety is Important in Electric Vehicle Development


The HORIBA Functional Safety Team helps battery and fuel cell manufacturers, as well as OEMs, integrate electrified technologies into their vehicles and address hazards that can result from the malfunctioning behavior of electrical/electronic systems. Adding fuel cell or battery systems, and their substantial software and electronics content, to a vehicle’s architecture not only adds to the complexity of vehicle communications — it significantly increases safety risks.

We are a leading independent provider of functional safety and SOTIF expertise with over 100 years of combined experience within the team. We are very active in the committee development groups for key standards like ISO 26262 and ISO PAS 21448 amongst others.
