System Theoretic Process Analysis (STPA) Recommended Practices for Evaluations of Automotive Related Safety-Critical Systems
- Ground Vehicle Standard
Data Sets - Support Documents
The scope of the “SAE Automotive Functional Safety Committee” comprehends safety-critical embedded control systems capable of at least 1 ASIL A-D hazard. These control systems include, but are not limited to steering, braking, propulsion, active safety and rechargeable energy storage systems installed in series production passenger cars with a maximum gross vehicle mass up to 3 500 kg. The committee will not address unique E/E systems in special purpose vehicles such as vehicles designed for drivers with disabilities. It also will not address hazards related to electric shock, fire, smoke, heat, radiation, toxicity, flammability, reactivity, corrosion, release of energy, and similar hazards unless directly caused by malfunctioning behavior of E/E safety-related systems.
