8:40 am - 9:10 am Keynote opening | Panel Discussion Between ISO 26262:2018 and ISO 21448:2019 Experts

Helen Monkhouse - Chief Engineer - Functional Safety, HORIBA MIRA
While ISO 26262 in now in its second edition, SOTIF just reached the CD status in October. Having originated from ISO 26262, SOTIF is supposed to complement this standard and the key question for those within the safety community is how to deal with performance requirements for both standards at once. Key areas to be discussed:
  • How to integrate both standards to optimize safety
  • How to adapt existing development processes to SOTIF

9:10 am - 9:40 am SOTIF Background

Originally started as part 14 of ISO 262626, SOTIF became a standard on its own in 2018. ISO 21448:2019 safety of the intended functionality (SOTIF) is meant to complete ISO 26262’s view on E/E system malfunctioning by a look into hazards due to the environment or unintentional misuse.
  • Background: how ISO 21448 was born
  • Difference between the two standards and why they are important
  • Why both standards are needed parallel to each other

9:40 am - 10:10 am A Systems Approach to Autonomous Vehicle Safety using STPA

John Thomas - Executive Director - Safety and Security Group, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
  • New systems-based safety techniques like System Theoretic Process Analysis (STPA) are being used for today‘s increasingly complex and automated safety-critical systems
  • As a top-down analysis, STPA emphasizes the system‘s dynamic behavior including automation interactions and human behavior
  • This talk will demonstrate STPA applied to autonomous vehicles to identify potential design flaws, missing requirements, human interactions, and unsafe software behaviors

10:10 am - 10:40 am Smart Testing of an Autonomous System

Michael Schlenkrich - Senior Director Product Management, MSC Software GmbH
Simulating environments and subsystems for the development and validation of ADAS and AD
systems is a challenging task which scales exponentially with the realism and fidelity of the
individual simulated components. This presentation will highlight the means to start on a massive scale with a scanning of the event space by minimizing the risks and maximizing the autonomous vehicle development efficiency. It will point out how to narrow in on „interesting“ edge cases that justify the use of highly realistic and detailed models that consume considerable time and computational resources. In the virtual world, the edge case detection is done by analyzing the millions of scenarios with thousands of parallel processes for billions of miles, faster than real-time simulation enabling the increased speed to deployable systems.

10:35 am - 11:10 am Morning Coffee Break and Networking

11:10 am - 11:50 am AD, CD and SOTIF – What Does it Mean in Combination with ISO 26262?

The upcoming SOTIF standard, ISO 21448, has as an aim to be complementary to ISO26262. The autonomous driving (AD) development is a revolution in the automotive domain in several ways, where the continuous deployment (CD) may imply that the cars on the road are getting a little more capable every few weeks. What is then a good way to compile a valid complete safety argumentation for each CD release, and what role do the safety standards play there?

11:50 am - 12:30 pm Co-ordination of Safe and Secure System Development

Helen Monkhouse - Chief Engineer - Functional Safety, HORIBA MIRA
This presentation will compare and contrast approaches to functional safety (in the established standard ISO 26262) and cybersecurity (in the emerging standard ISO/SAE 21434) including:
  • Alignment of lifecycles and activities
  • Approaches to risk management
  • Assurance activities – Extending safety cases/safety arguments to security

12:30 pm - 1:10 pm Key Challenges to the Safety Assurance of Autonomous Driving

Richard Hawkins - Senior Research Fellow, Assuring Autonomy International Programme (AAIP), University of York
It is not just in the automotive industry that autonomy is a big issue. The level of autonomy in
safety-related systems is rapidly increasing in many different domains such as healthcare,
manufacturing, agriculture, shipping and rail. All of these domains face t heir own unique
assurance challenges, but there are also many common themes that emerge across domains. In this presentation I will identify some of the key cross-domain challenges and lessons in assuring autonomy, and discuss the relevance of these to autonomous driving.

3:10 pm - 3:40 pm Safe Design Constraint in Context of Automated Driving

Mohamed Abbaz - Functional Safety – Cyber Security Metier Manager, Valeo Schalter und Sensoren GmbH
  • In the context of automated based on sensing environment based on sensors fusion, V2X connected car, GNSS localization/HD Maps, machine learning, artificial intelligence show the limitation of functional safety standard 26262 focus on electrical, electronic malfunction and also on current SOTIF PAS standard related to nominal performance even for automation level 1 and 2 functions.
  • The presentation will present challenge risk, new technical counter measure approach and vehicle safety architecture impact considering fault tolerance new metrics approach to ensure balance between safety and availability for safe and robust vehicle automated driving
