Our ambition is your safe and secure products and processes

New technologies such as industry 4.0, autonomous vehicles or next-generation robotics revolutionize mobility, manufacturing and industrial automation. They have enormous potential, but they also create substantial new risks.

As automation increasingly takes its place in industry, especially high-risk industry, it is often blamed for causing harm and increasing the chance of human error when failures occur. I propose that the problem is not the presence of automation, but rather its inappropriate design….

“The ISO26262 is a key topic for Kalray, pioneer of processors for intelligent systems, such as autonomous vehicles.
The CertX experts, led by Mr. Amin Amini, worked closely with the Kalray team to rapidly build a consistent framework meeting the requirements of ISO 26262.
