In this domain we focus on the part the driver plays in driving the vehicle. Multiple systems are already being developed to support the driver. Brace can assist in improving the integrity of these systems before being released. ​Major aspect in this domain is functional safety. ​

Functional Safety

Modern vehicles are highly dependent on well functioning on-board computers, sensors, actuators and networks. With the automotive industry rapidly moving towards a future of autonomous vehicles and intelligent mobility systems, it is in the vehicle’s electric and electronic system that most of the innovations will take place.

This complex area leads to an exposure of risk with regards to functional safety. Brace has a specialist team of functional safety engineers that can assist you from functional safety assessments and gap analysis up to process and technology improvements. This dedicated team works according to the state-of-the-art industry standard ISO 26262 and certifications.



Ensuring cybersecurity in the automotive sector requires a deep understanding of both automotive technology and digital security. This is where the importance of expert and independent advice comes into play. Specialized cybersecurity experts like BRACE, can conduct a thorough risk assessment, identify vulnerabilities and suggest appropriate measures to neutralize potential threats.
