This icebreaker session will discuss a number of safety case topics for high levels of automated driving including:

- Requirements for life-cycle management of safety cases
- How to define and reason about
- safety for autonomous vehicles (what represents reasonable risk? minimal risk condition)?
- the Operational Design Domain (ODD) for automated driving systems?
- safety case coverage of risk reduction measures design-time and risk assessment and management run-time
