Ricardo has been contracted by Geely Automotive Research Institute, the R&D organisation of the Chinese automaker, to provide functional safety support relating to a range of vehicle functions. Each of these functions is associated with key chassis and high voltage system operations.
Ricardo’s functional safety support to Geely will be provided by a team at the Ricardo Shanghai Technical Centre, with additional assistance provided by its expert functional safety assessors based in the UK.
“The delivery of functional safety of complex high voltage and chassis systems to ISO26262 [Road vehicles – Functional safety] requires a robust and systemic approach to ensure the required level of operational performance, fault tolerance and safety,” commented Ricardo Asia president, Gary Tan. “This is an area in which Ricardo excels, and it is a service it is able to deliver to Chinese customers using our Shanghai-based team, backed up with the support of the entire global Ricardo organisation.”
