“This lightweight and inexpensive tool is exactly what we want to use in my course, Automated Driving Systems Safety, which helps the students to be capable in conducting ISO26262 Functional Safety and SOTIF development activities in future career,” said Yuxin Zhang, Associate Professor from State Key Laboratory of Automotive Simulation and Control, Jilin University, China.

There is rising demand for system safety engineering especially for automobiles behind this launch. The automotive safety system market size was valued at USD 101.77 billion in 2020 and is projected to reach USD 198.96 billion by 2028, growing at a CAGR of 8.76% from 2021 to 2028.[*] One of the major factors driving this growth is government rules & regulations related to vehicle safety. In the age of radical change and rapid growth in the automotive industry, the needs for learning vehicle safety design are rising and now there are more safety design courses than ever.
