Nuremberg, Germany – On Monday, March 1st, 12:00 – 12:30PM CET, Altran’s Andreas Weber and University of Applied Sciences Darmstadt’s Johannes Schmidt, will be presenting “SIL and ASIL – is that Really the Principal Difference Between Safety for Plants and Safety for Cars?” at the first all-digital embedded world exhibition and conference.

During this segment, the two will discuss the differences between the basic safety publication IEC 61508 and ISO 26262, the standard for the automotive business.

The talk of these two standards includes a comparison of fundamentals in scope definition, safety lifecycle, and concepts. This is in addition to an evaluation of the airbag system, possibly the most well-known safety system within the automotive industry.

The segment is finished off with further discussion with regard to the differences in hazard analysis, risk assessment, and architectural design.
