(6) Virtual Development Cafe: Virtual development and release process of safety-relevant transportation system technologies

Autonomous driving will not totally avoid vehicle accidents. Challenges in functional testing: from sensors to sensor systems. Questions: How should we understand and simulate the vehicle safety architecture for automated driving? Future vehicle interior will require new restraint deployment strategies: How could a functional testing approach holistically cover the pre-crash phase and passive safety features?Read more

(4) Fail Operational Café: Fail operational E/E system concepts for future application in ADAS and autonomous driving

Can architectures following 1oo2D pattern be a way forward in design of fail-operational systems? Can traditional vehicle be converted into fail-operational vehicles via re-design / re-mapping of components? What are the common failures including different domains such as Communication domain, Hardware/Software, Signal fusion and Reliable Power supply? What are the shortcoming of ISO26262 to supportRead more

Case Study: Functional Safety from Driver Assistance to Automated Driving 

Development of advanced driver assistance systems Sensor Systems: From fail-safe to fail-operational Validation of sensor algorithms in regards of false-positives and falsenegatives The interface to Tier One – Solving the integration challenge between OEM and Tier One On the scope and structure of functional safety requirements in highly automated driving & challenges of safety inRead more

Case Study: System engineering, design and safety requirements for reliability of complex systems

Systems Engineering as defined in ISO 15288 and related standards is successfully applied in many industries traditionally providing and operating dependable, mostly (hard) real time and embedded systems. The past & today The automotive Industry has been dominated by mechanical solutions and systems within a vehicle which were fairly loosely coupled and each had moreRead more

Case Study: SOTIF and Automated Driving Trends – Current and Future

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 isRead more

(3) Functional Safety Cafe: Functional Safety of AI in the Development of Autonomous Vehicles

Can we certify AI? How? And which methods should be used for certification? Should autonomous vehicles, developed with AI techniques, be required to hold their own driving licences? What level of traceability is possible with neural networks? How much real-time data and decision logs can we access? Can we really implement end-to-end learning? How muchRead more

(2) Operational Safe Cafe: How can we demonstrate that an Autonomous Vehicle is Operational Safe?

Safety is fundamental for the deployment of autonomous vehicles. Operational safety means that the system will continue to operate for a determined length ot time despite some component failure or undexpected disturbances. It is different to the notion of fail-safe when a system once failure occurs. What could it be the strategy to develop OperationalRead more

Case Study: Safety in Cooperative Automated Systems

The talk motivates that merely considering functional safety is not sufficient for future cooperative automated systems. As additional dimensions, safety of the intended functionality as well as the engineering of a safe normal function must be considered. In addition, complex behaviors and the utilization of machine learning technology pose the need for novel safety measures.Read more

(6) Challenge Your Peers Session: Addressing the Challenges of Safety and Fail-operational AD system

Analysis of ISO 26262 shortcomings with respect to autonomous driving: is there a gap and if yes can we overcome it with the upcoming standard? Fail operational E/E system concepts for future application in ADAS and autonomous driving Product safety, functional safety, operational safety, SOTIFRead more
