LG is the first company in Korea to be certified to test software safety in electric vehicles

On this way LG became the first company in Korea certified to test functional security software for electric vehicles

The LG Electronics Software Testing Center (LG) is officially recognized as a laboratory that has ISO 26262 certification for functional safety testing of software designed for autonomous vehicles. As the first holder of this certificate in South Korea, the results to be issued in the future by the LG Software Testing Center will have international credibility in more than 70 countries and regions, including the United States, Europe and Japan. *

The ISO 26262 certificate is an international standard for the functional safety of electrical and electronic systems in vehicles, as defined by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). One measurement according to ISO 26262 determines the probability of accidents caused by errors in automotive software or development processes, which is a key factor in the mass use of autonomous vehicles. The certification allows LG to, in addition to testing the functional safety of autonomous vehicle software, test all automotive software systems as well as the AUTomotive Open System ARCHitecture (AUTOSAR) that fall under the ISO 26262 standard without the involvement of external agencies.

The accreditation was issued by the Korean Laboratory Licensing Agency (KOLAS), an internationally recognized body in charge of establishing national and industry standards for safety and quality. KOLAS has already recognized the LG Software Testing Center as an internationally accredited institution in determining software quality (ISO / IEC 25023) and industrial functional safety (IED 61508-3) of electronic products and technologies, including smart devices, televisions, robots, artificial intelligence, cloud technology and energy.

“LG is extremely proud to be able to test the functional safety of automotive software to the highest world standards,” said Dr. IP Park, President and Chief Technical Officer of LG Electronics. “This is a big part that will enable LG to offer even better products and services with the most reliable software that consumers will trust.”
