Automotive vs Industrial Functional Safety

Automotive vs Industrial Functional Safety A key concept in IEC 61508 is that of a safety function. A safety function in industrial consists typically of a sensor, logic and actuator designed to achieve or maintain a safe state. Its closest equivalent in ISO 26262 is the safety mechanism. This article shows how different is automotive [...]
