SEOUL, June 2, 2022 — LG Electronics’ (LG) Software Testing Center has officially been designated a TÜV Rheinland Appointed Laboratory, meaning the facility can now conduct functional safety tests on any automotive software solution that falls under the ISO 26262-6 standard.* World’s first of its kind to earn this status, LG’s Software Testing Center possesses the capabilities to independently assess and confirm the quality and functional safety of a wide range of automotive software products, from self-driving systems and in-vehicle networks to electric and electronic devices.

According to the ILAC Mutual Recognition Arrangement (ILAC MRA), reports issued by LG’s Software Testing Center will be recognized in 70 countries and territories, including the United States and Europe, and will carry the same credibility as those issued by a dedicated third-party testing agency.

In order to receive confirmation from TÜV Rheinland, one of the world’s leading global testing organizations, an institute or facility must meet a wide range of strict standards covering criteria such as test environment, equipment, capabilities and processes.

With its new status as a TÜV Rheinland Appointed Laboratory for automotive functional safety software, the lab is now able to meet growing auto industry demand by testing and providing TÜV Rheinland confirmation for companies’ vehicle software solutions. This latest accomplishment also provides LG with an opportunity to further strengthen its competitiveness in the rapidly expanding field of automotive software.

Last year, LG’s Software Testing Center received accreditation from the internationally respected Korea Laboratory Accreditation Scheme (KOLAS), becoming an ISO 26262-6 certified lab for evaluating autonomous vehicle software and measuring the quality of electric and electronic products (IEC 61508-3). LG is currently the only Korean manufacturer that can independently produce and issue a KOLAS-sanctioned report covering all these key areas.

“We’re deeply proud of the fact that our software lab has earned TÜV Rheinland confirmation and KOLAS accreditation in the span of less than one year,” said Kim Byoung-hoon, CTO of LG Electronics. “LG will continue to secure world-class automotive software capabilities to provide a differentiated customer experience based on a high level of safety.”

      My tv is acting strangely after there was a software update (sometime between April 10-15,2024)
      randomly turning off and on -- many times within a few minutes remote works some of the time or only certain buttons goes to a colored screen i.e. purple, yellow, light blue with no image just color sudden annoying continuous, high pitch sound like an alarm Checked and reset the cable box and called cable company. 
      Unplugged and plugged tv back in.
      Change the HDMI input
      It is becoming very frustrating.

      Up until a few days ago my TV and AVR have been working perfectly since I bought it.
      Zero hassles with HDMI and connectivity.
      Then I was prompted to update to the latest software version which I did and now often when I switch HDMI (running on 1) it picks up the device name, CEC works but I get “No Signal”… and then nothing.
      Just stays on “No Signal”. It is almost as if some HDMI handshake breaks and now the driver is in a broken state.
      I’ve found that if I hard power off and power on the device sometimes works but I don’t want to do that every time especially since it’s hard to get to the power.
      This really strikes me as a software issue with the latest update as absolutely nothing else has changed in my setup.
      I’ve tried:
      Different HDMI cables (high quality) Deep colour settings Reset the TV to factory default Different HDMI ports TV
      Model: OLED65G26LA / OLED65G26LA.HFBQLWK WebOS TV Version: 8.3.0.2301 Software Version: 13.30.56 AVR & Devices
      Marantz SR5015 Nvidia Shield Pro PS5
        The setup is the conventional AVR installation as shown in the attached file

       
      Has anyone else experienced this? 
      Is it possible to revert the software update?

With its diverse portfolio of interrelated and complementary solutions, LG aims to play a significant role in driving the future of mobility.
      Visitors to LG’s booth at EVS37 will have the opportunity to see the company’s premium in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) system. Employing plastic-OLED (P-OLED) display technology, LG’s system seamlessly unites three displays – an instrument panel, center information display (CID) and co-driver display (CDD) – to create a futuristic and elegantly curved panoramic screen. The much-in-demand system, which also incorporates LG’s exclusive curved glass molding, surface treatment and display bonding technologies, can already be found in a premium EV model from one of world’s top automakers.
      LG is also introducing its Automotive Content Platform (ACP) powered by webOS. Designed to elevate the in-vehicle experience, the new platform enables front and backseat passengers to enjoy high-quality video, game and music content while travelling to their destination. Based on the acclaimed webOS platform for LG Smart TV and tailored for in-vehicle use, the ACP powered by webOS offers easy access to a variety of popular OTT apps as well as convenient control and personalized content recommendations. Launched at the end of last year, the LG ACP was initially integrated into Hyundai Motor and Kia’s new Genesis GV80 and GV80 Coupe.
      LG Magna e-Powertrain, a joint venture between LG and Magna, is showcasing its innovative products to the public for the first time at EVS37. Among its offerings are an 800V high-speed hairpin motor capable of producing a 250kW output, an 800V SiC inverter that controls motor with electric energy from the battery and an 800V IPGM drive system integrating a motor, inverter and gearbox.
      As part of the lecture and discussion series taking place at EVS37, LG will present its insights into the challenges of realizing the software-defined vehicle (SDV) – and introduce its technological solutions for overcoming them. Among the scheduled speakers are research fellows from the R&D laboratory at the LG Vehicle component Solutions Company Hong Hyun-taek, Park Young-kyung and software business leader Lee Jun-nyung. Additionally, LG’s R&D experts will demonstrate how the company is developing vehicle-interior sensing technology that will enhance the overall SDV user experience.
