Hesai Obtains ISO/SAE 21434 Cybersecurity Mgmt. Certification

Hesai is the first lidar company to achieve this certification.

Hesai Technology announced it obtained the ISO/SAE 21434 automotive cybersecurity management certification from TÜV Rheinland, an international authoritative third-party testing and certification institution in Germany, becoming the first lidar company to receive this certification.

ISO/SAE 21434, an automotive cybersecurity management standard formulated by ISO and SAE, covers the full product life cycle, including concept, development, production, operation, and scrapping. It helps OEMs and suppliers assess and manage cybersecurity risks of road vehicles to meet global regulatory requirements, Hesai says.

Information security has presented a significant challenge for the transformation of automotive industry, Hesai says. The development of intelligent driving has made the internal systems of vehicles more complex, handling more interactions with human, road, vehicle, and cloud-based information. As vehicles become where data is stored and exchanged, there is an increasing risk for cyberattacks, which could cause personal information leaks and property loss, making the cybersecurity of automotive components highly important, according to Hesai.

Hesai says it will continue to improve its security management systems, deliver high-quality and reliable products for global customers, and promote cybersecurity awareness to empower the future development of intelligent driving.

Connected Vehicles Need the Right to Repair

A fleet of connected vehicles delivers many benefits to society and the motoring public, but critical technical decisions need to be made.


A modern vehicle is a powerful computer on wheels with dozens of interconnected modules, sensors and controllers. The technology works together to deliver the cleanest, safest and most fuel-efficient form of transportation ever. Automotive engineers have long dreamed of connecting these advanced vehicles to one another (V2V) and to roadside infrastructure (V2I). When vehicles can sense and communicate with one another, accidents can be avoided, traffic flow and speed can be smoothed, emergency vehicle response times can be improved and more. With these same vehicles connected to other devices such as traffic signals, pedestrians with mobile phones and other infrastructure (V2X – vehicle to everything), safety goes up and fuel consumption goes down. A fleet of connected vehicles delivers many benefits to society and the motoring public. Early examples of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) are deployed in the US and around the world. Billions of dollars have been allocated in the United States to deploy ITS on hundreds of miles of roadways and in municipal pilot sites in Tampa, Arizona, Utah and Michigan.
