LHP’s role in the autonomous vehicle space is working with companies to help implement technology that enables autonomous controls, leading to safer highways and greater mobility. According to the U.S. National Highway Safety Administration, a reported 94 percent of all auto accidents can be attributed to human error. Autonomous vehicles have the ability to process much more information than a human driver. This results in AVs making faster decisions that will make roads safer for all travelers and increase mobility for the elderly.
LHP has rapidly become a player in the autonomous vehicle space, specifically focusing on training needed to meet safety-critical industry standards for the self-driving car.
“The automotive industry’s transformation is essentially asking the public to trust their lives to a computer and a machine. Functional safety in practical terms is defined as the steps engineers and organizations take to avoid failures that harm the public.”
- David Glass, LHP CEO
LHP and TÜV NORD partnered to provide the Functional Safety Certification exam. Certifications are needed for safety-critical products and engineering capability. LHP provides the training needed to pass the certification exam. Throughout the LHP training program, participants are introduced to the ISO 26262 standard that will be expanded to include all road and passenger vehicles by the year 2018.
This program offers a unique three-stage approach to acquiring different levels of qualification based on different criteria. The training is provided in a 4-day format, with an option to take a TÜV NORD Certification exam on the fifth day.
LHP is proud to contribute to the future of the automotive industry. The Functional Safety Certification course is only the beginning for LHP.
