Meeting The Challenges of Autonomous Driving
SGS is helping to meet these challenges by:
- Defining new methodologies for the assessment of automated and connected technologies
- Evaluating functional safety and cybersecurity in real environments, using holistic, cross-disciplinary procedures
- Assisting the application of artificial intelligence/machine learning
- Facilitating efficient homologation and approval of autonomous vehicles
Working with leading automotive manufacturers and suppliers worldwide, our experts are involved from the very beginning in the creation and implementation of normative requirements, e.g., ISO 26262 (functional safety), ISO/SAE 21434 (cybersecurity), as well as specific standards for highly automated and autonomous driving.
We have extensive experience with the evaluation and testing of modern driver-assistance systems and other complex electronics, including the system-side application of artificial intelligence. We evaluated and approved the first system according to SAE Level 3 for series production. We are also active in defining regulations with regard to legal framework conditions in the relevant international committees.
With our interdisciplinary and closely networked global team, we help makers of highly automated and autonomous vehicles to meet these new challenges with the following areas of expertise:
