SafeAI Autonomous Framework (SAF), An Operating System Specially Designed for Heavy Industry, Achieves Highest Safety Level ASIL D Certification
Santa Clara, CA – July 31, 2023 – SafeAI, a global leader in autonomous solutions for heavy equipment, today announced a significant achievement for its SafeAI Autonomous Framework (SAF), the first operating system purpose-built for heavy industry. SAF has been awarded the ASIL D certification, the highest safety integrity level in the industry.
SAF is a highly portable and reliable operating system for heavy industry, designed to simplify and accelerate the development and deployment of autonomous applications in embedded and real-time environments. SAF gives mining and construction companies access to SafeAI’s certified and production-ready infrastructure to help them fast track their autonomous deployments and reap the benefits of self-driving equipment faster.
Today’s certification further reinforces SafeAI’s rigorous commitment to safety. ASIL, or Automotive Safety Integrity Level, is a risk classification scheme defined by the ISO 26262 standard for the functional safety of automotive equipment. ASIL D is the highest level of this classification, indicating the most stringent safety measures to mitigate risks.
SAF supports all safety-critical applications, ensuring the highest level of safety and reliability in SafeAI’s operations and those of its customers. The software API was developed in compliance with ISO 26262, IEC 61508, ISO 13849, and ISO 19014-4 as a software component and a Safety Element out of Context.
The ASIL D certification of SAF is further testament to SafeAI’s unwavering commitment to safety. This goes hand in hand with the company’s “Safety Above All” value, and validates SafeAI’s efforts to create a highly reliable and safe operating system for heavy industry applications.
This certification is not just an achievement for SafeAI, but a significant milestone for the entire heavy industry sector. It sets a new standard for safety and reliability, paving the way for broader adoption of autonomous technologies in heavy industry.
We are incredibly proud of this achievement, but we're not stopping here. We will continue to push the boundaries of what's possible, driving efficiency, safety, and productivity in heavy industry operations. I want to extend my personal gratitude to our dedicated team, our partners, and our customers for their unwavering support and trust in SafeAI. This milestone is a testament to our collective efforts, and I’m excited about the transformative impact SAF will have on the heavy industry sector.Bibhrajit Halder Founder and CEO, SafeAI
