10:30 - 11:00 Refreshments break and Networking

11:00 - 12:00 SOTIF validation targets

Krzysztof Czarnecki - Professor, University of Waterloo
The big challenge around SOTIF is how to validate target rates. What are acceptale failure rates for object recognition, for example traffic lights. What target is is necessary but still manageable to assure functionality but also ensure critical safety. Which procedures are needed, what tools useful to go about this will be discussed critically and worked on in this workshop.

12:00 - 13:00 SOTIF and sensor or lidar challenges – verification standards in spirit of ISO26262

Dr. David A. LaRue - Electrical Functional Safety Specialist, FEV
Autonomous driving is the future of modern transport. It takes a whole new approach to FuSa as well as loads expertise in environmental recognition. This goes beyond the current scope of expertise of most FuSa professionals. However, these functions, whether on a system or item level do have critical safety implications. This workshop will give great insight into V&V best practices with combining ISO and SOTIF.
