Safety Standards

The vehicular safety systems have indeed come a long way from the Pedestrian Detection systems that was used by Mercedes-Benz and with the new advent of electronics and programmable on dash CPUs, vehicular systems are getting safer. But I wish there was a system to deploy air bags effectively, without compromising the air pressure as well as passenger safety. If there?s a sensor monitoring passenger positioning inside the car, air bags can deploy without breaking the hands and cheek bones of the driver. A friend of mine hit a truck standing on a red light at 50 miles an hour. Her hands were not on the steering wheel, and when the airbags deployed, they twisted her hands around the elbow, and she suffered a broken hand, and nothing else.

Re: ISO 26262 compiance is great, but will anyone pay for it?

@Olaf, agreed. I don't think automakers have any choice but to have their cars -- and all the components in the entire food chain-- ISO26262 standard-compliant. How much more each in the food chain needs to spend for the compliancy is a good question...

Have a look at the car prices then you have got the answer. On the other hand I see still potential for OEMs and suppliers to cut their production costs by a higher degree of automation with better engergy efficiency. But I think, there is no choice because of legal reasons and product liability. And I fear that some OEMs and suppliers will disappear.

Implementing ISO 26262-aware processes mean higher cost for everyone in the supply chain, from the Tier 1 OEM down to the SoC IP block provider. Will the automakers and ultimately the end consumers pay extra for this, or is enhanced safety something that simply eats away at every supplier's margins?
