The Software Testing Center at LG was officially recognized as ISO 26262 certified laboratory to conduct functional safety tests on software designed for i self-driving vehicles. As South Korea’s first facility certified to test such software, results released by LG’s Software Testing Center will have international credibility in over 70 countries and regions, including the United States, Europe and Japan.
LG has been recognized as an international accreditation body for software testing of self-driving vehicles
ISO 26262 is the international standard for functional safety of electrical and electronic systems present in road vehicles. The standard is defined by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). One of the ISO 26262 measurements determines the likelihood of accidents caused by software errors or in development processes. This is a critical factor in the commercialization of self-driving vehicles. The certification allows LG to test all automotive and AUTomotive Open System Architecture (AUTOSAR) software systems that fall under the ISO 26262 standard without the involvement of external agencies. functional safety of software designed for self-driving vehicles.
The recognition was issued by Korea Laboratory Accreditation Scheme (KOLAS), an internationally recognized agency. LG’s Software Testing Center was previously recognized by KOLAS as an internationally accredited testing institute for software quality measurement (ISO / IEC 25023); and for industrial functional safety of electronic products and technologies (IED 61508-3), including smart appliances, TVs, robots, artificial intelligence, cloud and energy.
“We are very proud to have received this recognition for the ability to verify the functional safety of automotive software.” he has declared Dr. I.P. Park, president and CTO of LG Electronics. “With this recognition, LG will be able to offer even more efficient products and services. Services that people can trust, in order to provide the most reliable software possible ”.
