Season 3 - Episode #4 - The ISO26262 Digital Conference
With the ever growing importance of functional safety in automotive silicon, the ISO26262 standard has never been more important. However, it still doesn’t have the cross industry understanding it should have to keep automotive compute moving forward.
On the 24th and 25th March, The ISO26262 Digital Conference was hosted by a cross industry group called the 26262 club. The event unpacked and expanded the knowledge of ISO26262 and how it can be applied to the benefit of everyone’s safety. We speak to David Higham, the Senior Principal Functional Safety Engineer at Imagination Technologies, and member of The 26262 Club. He is also on the organising committee for the conference.
The conference is run as a not for profit endeavour, donating any funds received to STEM programmes aimed at encouraging young people of all races, genders and backgrounds to get involved in STEM and specifically computer science. We find out what The 26262 Club’s goals are, the topics that were discussed at the event and why ISO26262 is a fundamental next step across the industry for automotive compute.
