Many accidents and even fatalities are caused by earth-moving machinery, crawler cranes,tractors, Special Foundation Equipment, and farm machinery,. Especially if users/drivers do not behave as intended, or if safety is not properly guaranteed.
At the same time electronic control systems are responsible of the core functionality in the vehicles, e.g., engine control, braking, and steering; and the functions performed by the vehicles, e.g., buckets, telescopic handlers, or drills. Authorities currently increase the pressure on vehicle manufacturers to comply with safety standards for their electronic systems. The market will increase expectations on products to be certified according to e.g. ISO 13849, 25119, 15998, 12100, IEC 61508, 62061 and Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC and it will be a competitive advantage to do so.
