First Conference Day | Tuesday, 31 March 2020

8:00 am - 9:00 am Registration and welcome coffee

9:00 am - 9:10 am Opening remarks by chairman Anders Sandberg

9:10 am - 9:50 am Opening Keynote Presentation: From PAS to CD – the newest updated on ISO 21448 SOTIF

End of 2019, the ISO 21448 PAS turns into a CD, and by this, is climbing the next level on its way to a full ISO standard. In his speech, Nicolas Becker, SOTIF WG leader, will highlight the updates that have been included into the CD document, one of them being that the SOTIF scope got extended to higher levels of automation.

9:50 am - 10:30 am Match and Win

Identify your group while at the same time getting to know many of your peers in
a short amount of time.

10:30 am - 11:00 am Coffee Break and Networking

11:00 am - 11:30 am Keynote presentation | Current Status and Recent Updates to the SOTIF Definitions

This presentation summarizes the current status Clause 3: Definitions of the SOTIF standard ISO 21448. It provides the major definitions updates that were introduced in the Committee Draft (CD) version.

11:30 am - 12:00 pm Risk identification & evaluation

Once the functional and system specification is done, SOTIF activities move to identifying and evaluating hazards that are caused by the intended functionality. Based on the hazard identification and analysis, the risk of the intended functionality can be evaluated, as well as the validation target set.
• High-quality overview on ISO 21448:2019 chapter 6
• Hazard identification
• Risk target

12:00 pm - 12:30 pm Identifying and evaluating triggering events

If a plausible risk of harm is achieved, you turn towards the triggering events as a next step within the SOTIF activities. Triggering events will be analysed and their acceptability is evaluated.
• Triggering events related to algorithms
• Triggering events related to sensors and actuators
• Acceptability of SOTIF risk 

12:30 pm - 1:00 pm Speaker Corner

Discuss your questions in smaller groups with each of the two presenters above

1:00 pm - 2:30 pm Network luncheon

2:30 pm - 3:00 pm Keynote | SOTIF verification & validation strategy

Before going ahead with verification and validation, ISO 21448:2019 recommends to define a verification and validation strategy including planning and specification of integration and testing. Then only, sensor, decision algorithm, actuation and integrated system are verified, and validation test parameters set.
• V&v strategy
• Verification of known unsafe scenarios
• Validation of unknown unsafe scenarios

3:00 pm - 3:30 pm Relevance of SOTIF on driving policy for autonomous vehicles

The relevance of SOTIF concepts for the design of an effective and safe driving policy for an autonomous vehicle. How a formalized model can help this design and implementation
- What driving policy is
- The role of SOTIF in the design of driving policy, Annex D.1 SOTIF 
- Formalized model: the Responsibility Sensitivity Safety example

3:30 pm - 4:00 pm Refreshment coffee and networking

4:00 pm - 4:30 pm Functional Safety: technical option versus tegal realities – Challenge for solutions

ISO 26262 provides processes for safety of road vehicles on item level, ISO 21448 provides ideas to realize safety of the intended functionality. Both are selling the future pretending to deliver safer products based on knowledge and production realities of today.
• Legal processes are similar to technical processes
• The comparison of assumptions and processes of decision making (is the product really safe?) requires that future perspectives and promises must survive reality checks under the laws, in particular under European product safety legislations and the new Type approval requirements under Regulation 2018/858.
• The focus of technical and legal challenges: How to meet the mandatory requirements of Burden of proof?

4:30 pm - 5:00 pm Speaker Corner

Discuss your questions in smaller groups with each of the two presenters above

5:00 pm - 5:10 pm Closing remarks by the chairman

6:00 pm - 7:00 pm Porsche Hot Laps

7:00 pm - 10:00 pm Evening Event

Join us for an informal evening get-together! This is an excellent opportunity for you to meet the other attendees and make new business contacts. Joint session with audience from three co-located conferences.
