Functional Safety - Part 2 of 2
(Session Code: CV707)

Room 45  1:30 p.m.

Functional Safety involves the overall safety of a system or piece of equipment that depends on the system or equipment operating correctly in response to inputs, including safe handling of likely operator errors, hardware failures, and environmental changes. This is critical for drive-by-wire, brake-by-wire and other major systems that need to be fail-safe. Learn how companies approach the design, testing, and manufacture of systems that must not fail.
