Pre-Conference Focus Day

10:00 - 10:30 Focus Day Registration and Welcome Tea or Coffee

10:30 - 11:00 Opening Remarks and Overview on Existing and Upcoming Safety Standards

The increased complexity of our automotive systems in safety critical areas demands a thoughtful consideration of functional safety, as well as safety of the intended functionality. Consequently, we see a great number of safety standards on the market.
The UL 4600 standard defines safety principles, tools, techniques and processes that allow creating a safety argument for SAE automation level 4 vehicles. It is one of the only standards in the market discussing vehicle safety at such a high level of automation. This presentation will cover what the UL 4600 standard envisions as a valid safety case, and how to get there.

12:00 - 13:00 IEEE P2851 – Interoperability for Safety Analysis and Verification of IP, SoC and Mixed Signal ICs

Brand new and already highly discussed is the IEEE P2851 standard. It covers languages,
data fields and parameters that allow functional safety analysis and verification results for IP,
SoC and IC’s to be exchanged and made available to system integrators. Get your first im
pression on the new standard draft during this session.

13:00 - 14:00 Networking Lunch

14:00 - 15:00 Overview of ISO 21448: Safety of the Intended Functionality

Krzysztof Pennar - System Safety Engineer, Autonomous Vehicle, GM
This interactive workshop will provide a general overview of the aim, scope, and focus areas
of the ISO 21448. We will also spend time in dialogue on the complementary aspects of
ISO 26262 and 21448. The goal of the workshop is to provide a high level understand of
ISO 21448 and how future safety assessments can integrate both standards.

15:00 - 16:00 Safety Standards for Avionics and Transportation: Overview of Requirements

Jyotika Athavale - Senior Staff Reliability Architect, Intel
This presentation will describe the safety requirements for safety critical avionics and railway
signaling systems, including DO-254, DO-178, CAST-32A and CENELEC standards. The talk
will also cover the mapping of avionics (DO-254) and automotive (ISO26262) standards, in
the context of multicore SOC based systems. A comparison of safety integrity requirements
between standards/domains and artifacts needed to ensure compliance to requirements for
these safety critical systems will be discussed.
