Safety control unit with AUTOSAR

Development of a safety control unit with AUTOSAR

We have developed an ASIL-C Safety control unit with AUTOSAR for a leading hydraulics manufacturer. The control unit is intended for use in vehicles according to ISO 26262.

The system controls x-by-wire systems and is intended as a platform for control systems in conjunction with expedient safety requirements.

Sontheim Indusrtrie Elektronik GmbH developed a Safety ECU family, which is highly scalable and has an approval as a generic control unit. In addition, Sontheim supplies software according to AUTOSAR-compliant specifications. The software platform allows an application software to be developed quickly and in conformity with functional safety aspects. The control unit achieves a safety level according to ISO 26262 ASIL-C and is certified accordingly. Further approvals are also planned to enable the Safety ECU family to be used in different markets.
