 Ansys selected by Panasonic Automotive to Facilitate Functional Safety Analysis for Future Mobility Technologies

With the model-based engineering and simulation solutions from Ansys, Panasonic Automotive received the ISO 26262 ASIL-D process certification. Panasonic Automotive and Ansys worked on a systematic, model-based approach throughout the safety lifecycle to optimize the implementation of a standards-based functional safety analysis throughout the development process.

Innovations in the automotive industry in the driver’s cabs increase the complexity and functionality of embedded systems, many of which are safety-related and an integral part of their safety lifecycle. Security risk. As a result, manufacturers are paying more and more attention to safety standards and compliance to ensure product safety. While these evolving industry standards help engineers identify and remediate risk, obtaining certification through legacy processes is error-prone and time-consuming.

Panasonic Automotive has facilitated the functional safety analysis in the development of the next generation eCockpit by using the Ansys median analysis to ensure compliance with the industry-standard ISO 26262. The Medini analysis offers a model-based approach for efficient, repeatable, and consistent analysis tasks during the entire development process. i.e. industry certification is considered in the earliest stages of design, reducing development time and costs.

We believe mobility innovations will continuously evolve in a system- and the software-defined world, and it is essential to have an overriding process dedicated to functional safety,” said Andrew Poliak, chief technology officer at Panasonic Automotive. “Implementing Ansys medini analyze as a foundational tool for functional safety analysis helped us define that process while saving time. Our collaboration with Ansys allows us to confidently deliver next-generation automotive systems that meet and exceed customer expectations for safety.”

As part of its new systemic approach to safety analysis, Panasonic Automotive worked directly with Ansys technical teams to establish formal training and best practices to support future process certification initiatives.

Model-based engineering and simulation are more important than ever as next-generation vehicle systems grow in complexity,” said Shane Emswiler, senior vice president of products at Ansys. “The recent achievement of Panasonic Automotive is proof that, with the right solutions, meet critical industry requirements does not have to slow the pace of innovation. We look forward to continuing to support the Panasonic Automotive team in developing safe and secure eCockpit automotive systems.”
