Fundamentals of Automotive Functional Safety Control Systems Training

What to Expect from the Course?

At the start of every course, we take some time to welcome our participants into our training facilities. In addition to orientation items, we tour around the workplace and do introductions with staff that they will work with throughout their time in our courses.

Our training facilities are in the same buildings that our LHP engineers work, so you are truly immersed in the corporate world and culture of LHP.

What Students Learn from this Course:

The controls course, based on the ISO26262 standard for Automotive Functional Safety, gives trainees a foundation for implementing embedded control systems and automotive and industrial applications.

Participants learn and practice soft skills throughout the course for success on an engineering project team.

  • Trainees learn CAN and the SAE J1939 protocol.
  • Use simulator-based automatic code generation software.
  • Implement an electronic throttle controller.
  • Design engine minimum speed and maximum speed governors.
  • Implement and calibrate an engine controller with engine speed control and CAN communications.

At the end of the course, participants are able to explain ISO 26262 automotive functional safety concepts using examples from the course.

This course also gives individuals the skills, confidence, and experience to contribute as an engineering professional from the first day on the job.
