Sensor System Validation

IABG assists its customers right from the early design stage with analytical methods (safety assessment). The chosen safety architecture is examined using modelling, simulation and subsequent validation in compliance with the relevant standards.

Test facilities, simulators and hardware-in-theloop (HiL) tests provide support from the prototype phase through to product qualification.


Customer Benefits
• Integrated, systematic approach for assessing safety and reliability (functional safety according to ISO 26262)
