Traditionally, the automotive industry has a safety process for developing safe systems in compliance with automotive standard ISO 26262. However, this process is involved to address only unreasonable risks due to the E/E system failures. However, the safety of these systems is not only related to malfunction behaviours due to the E/E failures. It is also related to the foreseeable misuse of the function by the driver or to the performance limitations of sensors or systems or to unexpected changes in the road environment. A new topic called “Safety of Intended functionality” (SOTIF) become today a hot topic in the automotive industry to address the other unreasonable risks in the absence of the malfunctions of the E/E system in vehicles. Recently, a safety standard “ISO PAS 21448” is newly developed to provide a guidance on how to address these issues in complementary with ISO 26262 functional safety.
