Addressing Functional Safety Needs

Traditionally the human driver is fully responsible for situational awareness in all driving scenarios. Functional Safety is concerned with mitigating risk due to system failure only.

With the advent of assisted and automated driving a lot more computerized intelligence is needed for automobiles to safely maneuver in all environments under all conditions. Vehicles communicate with each other and the infrastructure. More and more sensors are embedded in cars and AI techniques are applied for object recognition and path planning. Consequently, safety hazards may occur without internal malfunctioning of components or the entire system simply due to improper self-driving behavior.

Today, vehicles with L3 features like an Automated Lane Keeping System (ALKS) are about to be commercially available. The next step will be L4 automated vehicles. They will be equipped with an autopilot to drive safely in a defined operational design domain (ODD).

There is a broad consensus among leading experts and decision makers in the automotive domain that standards are needed, not only to build trust but to validate that autonomous vehicles are safe. Existing standards like ISO 26262 have to be evolved and complemented by new standards.

Webinar Overview

This webinar covers some of the key standardization efforts to address industrial safety challenges to help L4 cars become a reality on public roads for all of us:
  • Standards for IP vendors and SoC providers to execute safety analyses and safety verification activities and for EDA vendors to automate those activities (IEEE P2851)
  • Safety of the Intended Functionality to solve safety problems arising from the interaction between the scenario objects and the vehicle (ISO SOTIF)
  • Safety assurance of AI-based autonomous systems
  • An integrated approach combining different, partly standardized building blocks into a method to gain confidence in the safety of highly automated vehicles
Why Join
Key industry leaders from Europe, the United States and Asia will share their views and be available for Q&A. Attendees will have opportunities to interact with speakers and comment on tech, business and regulatory challenges. Researchers are encouraged to share latest research results, and innovators to come up with disruptive concepts.
