Editor’s Notes – Event Introduction
Tom Phillips, Digital Editor, Automotive IQ

Session One – Keynote speaker: Where are we at right now?
14:00 - 14:45 CEST
The ever-evolving status of ISO 26262, SOTIF and beyond can cause confusion. But this opening keynote is designed to address exactly that, setting out the current forms of these safety standards, highlighting any key recent adjustments, and introducing some of the likely changes as these standards are altered to take into account new technologies.

In this opening session, we will answer:
    • How close are we to industry-wide standardization of regulations?
    • Is the ISO 26262 standard modern enough for Level 4 and Level 5 vehicles?
    • What is the current status of SOTIF transition to CD and any other relevant standards?
Riccardo Mariani, VP Industry Safety, NVIDIA

15:00 - 15:45 CEST
The ISO 26262 functional safety standard covers electrical and electronic automotive systems and their development process, including verification and validation. Part 6 of the standard specifically addresses product development at the software level, and the multiple testing methods required by the standard.

Testing technologies like static analysis, unit testing, structural code coverage, and requirements traceability identify any gaps in testing to requirements. 

Specific testing methods depend on the Automotive Safety Integrity Level (ASIL) classification of the system. To address safety and security from the get-go, MISRA C 2012, AUTOSAR C++14, CERT, or a custom hybrid are known to be used in achieving code quality across suppliers and primes.

The cost of achieving ISO 26262 compliance in software testing can be expensive. Learn how to reduce costs through automating the multiple testing methods required by the standard to produce safe, secure, and reliable software.

Join Parasoft for a presentation on software testing in compliance with ISO 26262 to learn:
    • How to apply static analysis for software safety and security
    • How to expedite your unit testing with test automation
    • The various structural code coverage options
    • How to identify requirement traceability gaps in testing

In the journey to autonomous vehicle creation, there is a need to prove that the vehicle’s automated functionalities behave as intended. If a test vehicle is used for an autonomous functionality demonstration or measurement activities, whether on a private test track or on the public roads, the vehicle must operate inside of the defined acceptable risk conditions.

In this session, we will discuss::
    • The main activities for proving a vehicle’s operational safety
    • How risk management can be applied to the operational safety of an autonomous test vehicle
    • What are the risk mitigation actions
Catalin-Stefan Ionescu, System Safety Engineer, Continental Automotive

17:00 - 17:45 CEST

The changing regulatory landscape is driving the need to assess interactions between functional safety with contiguous domains, such as real time and security, for automotive, industrial and avionics safety critical systems. This is also must be done in the scope of the current IEEE P2851 standard.

In this session, you will gain:
  • An overview of how to assess interactions between functional safety with contiguous domains
  • Insights into the requirements and certification challenges for these complex systems
  • How to consider for mitigating conflicts at the intersection of these technologies
