Chinese technology giant Huawei has received the highest level of Automotive Electrical Process Certification (ISO 26262 ASIL D) from certification service provider SGS, making it the first company in China to receive the certificate.
The ISO 26262:2018 standard is a globally recognized automotive functional safety standard that includes specifications for automotive hardware development, semiconductor chips, and in-vehicle electrical and electronic devices, as well as digital and analog components, programmable logic devices (PLDs), multi-core processors, and sensors.
Huawei was the first to receive functional safety certification (ISO 26262 ASIL-D) in May 2020 for its Autonomous Driving Operating System (including virtualization mechanisms), which is based on the Harmony system as the core.
The system has received the highest level of information security certification (CC EAL 5+) in the Security domain in September 2019, marking Huawei's self-driving OS kernel as the industry's first commercial OS kernel with dual high certifications in Security and Safety.
Recently, Huawei's patents related to autonomous driving have also been approved. This means that Huawei's research and development in the field of autonomous driving has shown good results and is expected to announce its own autonomous driving solution in the future.
