Functional safety is the absence of unreasonable risk due to hazards caused by failures or unintended behaviors of electrical and electronic systems. The Automotive Safety Integrity level (ASIL) is measured by exposure, controllability and severity, where the corresponding ASIL level reflects the severity of harm vs. the probability of occurrence. ASIL-A is the least stringent and ASIL-D is the most stringent.
