Autonomous Vehicles

At the forefront of safety for autonomous transportation systems

Autonomous transportation systems, combined with electrification and increased connectivity, are revolutionising the future of mobility. But these systems also require new safety standards.

To ensure the safe, large-scale deployment of autonomous vehicles, there are many technical, environmental and human challenges that must still be overcome.

Leading the way

At Airbus Protect, we support key transportation stakeholders by addressing dependability and integrated logistics support challenges – based on over three decades of risk management experience.

We invest continually in R&D, creating state-of-the-art validation frameworks for autonomous transportation systems, as well as developing modelling and integration capabilities to create a scalable system of systems. This enables us to position our clients at the forefront of the safety revolution – paving the way for the social acceptance and adoption of autonomous vehicles.

Why Airbus Protect?

Our methodology focuses on understanding the unique needs of each client, and tailoring a safety solution accordingly. This means:

  • Adopting a multidisciplinary approach
  • Enhancing the robustness and performance of AI and data management systems
  • Modelling and simulating challenges specific to autonomous vehicles Model Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) to Model Based Systems Assessment (MBSA)
  • Working closely with international institutions to guarantee the highest possible level of compliance with current (ISO26262, SOTIF ISO 21448, ISO 50126 to ISO 50129) and future regulations
