CSL Founder

Jeffrey Joyce

With clients in North America, Europe and Asia, Dr. Joyce is recognized internationally for his insights about managing safety risk in complex operational environments. He is registered as a Professional Engineer in the province of British Columbia.

In client projects, Jeff has focused on the development and analysis of high hazard software-intensive systems and system and safety engineering methodologies across industry sectors including automotive, aerospace, energy, rail, marine and high energy physics. Dr Joyce participated in the development of international safety standards RTCA DO 178C and its supplement RTCA DO-333 Formal Methods. He also was a member of the international working group that developed ISO 26262 which has been adopted by the automotive industry for the functional safety of electronic control systems in road vehicles. Jeff also has extensive experience with the practical application of a broad range of safety related standards such as ISO 26262 (automotive), RTCA DO-178B/C (aerospace), MIL STD 882 (system safety), CENELEC EN 50128 (rail), IEC 61508 (functional safety).

J. Joyce is one of the inventors named in the following US Patents:
US8618922B2 - "Method and system for ensuring operation of limited-ability autonomous driving vehicles"
US9244460B2 - "Methods and apparatus for isolating safety functions in a motion control system for a vehicle"
