Post-conference Workshop Day | 28 March
7:30 am - 8:00 am Welcome coffee and registration for workshop 6, 7 and 8
8:00 am - 10:30 am WORKSHOP 6 - Combining ASPICE and ISO 26262 to produce a compliant in-wheel motor
Focus: model-based safety
Ø Using Model Based Systems Engineering to model processes compliant with ISO 26262 and ASPICE
Ø Interactive investigation into the commonality between ISO 26262 and ASPICE
Ø Interactive discussion to address the challenges of implementing multiple processes across multiple standards
Gareth Price, Functional Safety Manager, Protean Electric Ltd., UK.
8:00 am - 10:30 am WORKSHOP 7 - Towards a driving license for self-driving cars – A Dutch case study
Focus: legislative perspective
Cars will get gradually smarter and in the future, cars will become more and more automated. Automated cars are a new technology for which no assessment criteria or implementation legislation is yet available. Gaining practical experience with these new systems, will allow our legislators to keep pace with these technological advancements. In this workshop we invite project leaders to guide working groups in the following:
Ø Reviewing testing methodologies
Ø Explore the current testing landscape, with legislative considerations
Ø Mapping out future strategies and lessons learned

Edwin Nas, Smart Mobility – Connected and automated vehicles, Netherlands Directorate for Roads and Traffic Safety, Netherlands
8:00 am - 10:30 am WORKSHOP 8 - Case Study on how to apply SOTIF and FuSa for highly automated vehicles – Safety on Machine Learning
Focus: Safe Machine Learning
Extending the automation of a vehicle from level 2 to level 3/4/5, safety discussion urgently needs to incorporate Machine Learning. While no-one is able to predict the AI learning process, safety needs to be fully assured. Get insights into an approach for safe Machine Learning.
Ø Discover successful ways for applying SOTIF in a global way
Ø Acquire a good understanding on the real world implications SOTIF will have on your business
Ø Understand the challenges and take-away the lessons learnt on rendering Machine Learning safe

10:30 am - 11:00 am Coffee break and registration for workshop 9, 10 and 11
11:00 am - 1:30 pm WORKSHOP 9 - DeFeAt your Dependent Failures: Experience From The Application
Focus: DFA methodology
A good understanding of best-practices on DFA in automotive industry if very important, especially for upcoming automation. Industry consensus on this topic has been reflected in the new version of ISO 26262. Workshop will cover the main steps of DFA analysis according to the new ISO 26262 Rev 2. We will discuss the relevant use-cases of DFA to allow participants to get a sense of an efficient methodology that could be shared across the industry.
Participants will be able to gain experience on application the methodology.
Result will be reviewed in the workshop.
Dr. Tomislav Lovric, Safety Assesor, ZF, German
11:00 am - 1:30 pm WORKSHOP 10 - From virtual simulator to test track: Strategies for testing the next generation of vehicle automation
In this workshop we invite testing specialists to share best practices and strategies for testing vehicles with an increasing number of automated driving functions and explore considerations for even further levels of automation. Participants will be invited to join working groups and brainstorm approaches for combining virtual and track testing for increasingly automated vehicles.
Ø Research findings and what that means for future testing
Ø Comprehensive testing strategies that combine various methods
Ø Addressing challenges ahead
11:00 am - 1:30 pm WORKSHOP 11 - SOTIF evaluation by analysis - how to define the ‘right’ function
Focus: Evaluation by analysis
Different to ISO 26262, looking into functional safety, SOTIF aims for safe functionality. In this respect, safety needs to be looked at on a vehicle-level.
Ø Learn about the information needed to start the SOTIF process
Ø Discover how to caryy out a SOTIF risk evaluation and understand how it differs from a functional safety HARA
Ø Be able to identify and evaluate SOTIF triggering events
Ø Explore the approaches to risk reduction and consider how to justify the risk that remains

1:30 pm - 3:30 pm Networking luncheon and registration for workshop 12, 13 and 14
3:30 pm - 6:00 pm WORKSHOP 12 - Level 3 automation system safety requirements: Implications for IC-level definition and implementation
Focus: semiconductor perspective
This workshop session aims to give a semiconductor supplier perspective on the system safety requirements of the Level-3 automation and impact to IC definition and implementation, IC random failure definitions and failure mode analysis.
Samir Camdzic, Systems Engineer, Automotive & Safety Power Product Line, Texas Instruments, Germany.
3:30 pm - 6:00 pm WORKSHOP 13 - Approaches for verification & validation of highly automated driving
The workshop explores various approaches of verification and validation, within the context of a Tier 1 perspective, for setting up the domain controller that provides highly automated driving features.
We invite 2 experienced verification and validation professionals provide an overview of the latest developments in the domain. Participants will be put into working groups where they can will be asked to address a challenge in the current verification processes.
Ø Approaches for defining test requirements & criteria’s
Ø Approach for scenario-based testing of HAD from a Tier 1 perspective
Ø Overview of safety specific testing
Ø Vehicle testing feature level - approaches & acceptance criteria
Ø How much testing is enough for HAD ?

3:30 pm - 6:00 pm WORKSHOP 14 - Integrating Functional Safety activities with Product Safety strategy
Focus: Product Safety
Most recalls are done because of safety critical E/E systems. We will try to look at safety from the whole-vehicle perspective, integrating mechanical and electric/electronic safety together. It is a necessary step in automotive to have complete and correct requirements. This approach also helps to consider safety together with quality requirements. Will Functional Safety have more dominant role in overall product safety strategy?
