How to achieve complete vehicle safety in the context of
rising automation and system complexity
As the number, the complexity and functionality of control systems in vehicles continue to rise, the challenges involved in designing and manufacturing safe vehicles also increase. With the transition from Level 2 to Level 3 of vehicle automation, the focus is on countering safety engineering challenges on the component and system level as well as their interrelation.

PROGRAM AT A GLANCE
PRE-CONFERENCE WORKSHOPS – 28.11.16
Three successive modules of 150 minutes each focus on ways to generate reliable software/systems solutions despite rising software complexities, encryption as the solution for preventing cyber crime in automotive industry, and a model-based design approach for automotive applications
SAFETY ENGINEERING IN THE NEW AUTOMOTIVE WORLD – 29.11.16 Morning
The conference will kick off with the keynote address on the current trends and challenges in automotive safety engineering by Researcher Rolf Johansson from SP Technical Research Institute of Sweden, followed by a presentation by Volvo on building resilience in autonomous vehicles.
ISO 26262 AND BEYOND: ENSURING FUNCTIONAL SAFETY OF HIGHLY COMPLEX SYSTEMS – 29.11.16 Noon
Qamcom Research & Technology, University of Hull, ZF TRW, and JCB Design Center will present on safety of the intended function vs. ADAS complexity, the need to push evolution in ISO 26262, driving platform standardization and cost reduction of E/E architecture, and why it’s hard to thoroughly optimize industrial size architecture applications.
RISK MANAGEMENT AND HARA – 29.11.16 Afternoon
The last module of opening day starts off with a lecture on managing complexity with a component-centered analysis approach by Dr.Ing. Kai Hofig from Siemens, followed up with presentations on safety analyses and lessons learned by Continental, ZF TRW, and Humboldt University Berlin.
SAFE DESIGN OF COMPLEX EMBEDDED SOFTWARE – 30.11.16 Morning
The second conference day begins on systems engineering based on the correctness by construction methodology and mixed criticality for multicore/manycore systems with presentations by Dr. Robert Hilbrich of the German Aerospace Center, Dr. Bert Boddeker of DENSO Automotive, and Werner Weber of Infineon Technologies.
VALIDATION & VERIFICATION STRATEGIES: TESTING & SIMULATION OF HIGHLY COMPLEX SAFETY-CRITICAL SYSTEMS – 30.11.16 Noon
After the refreshment break and midmorning networking session, participants will hear about the benefits of model-based design in development and testing, multi-scale multi-domain simulations, and validation of level 2 automation systems from the talks given by Hyundai MOBIS, RWTH Aachen University, and General Motors/Adam Opel.
SYSTEM MAINTENANCE: PROTECTION OF VEHICLE SYSTEM – 30.11.16 Afternoon
The last module will feature presentations by Continental, Mando Corporation, and Robert Bosch on delivering safer cars faster, lessons learned on the risks of connected embedded systems, and an examination on the role of the driver within system safety, closing off with an interactive session on the legal aspects and safety requirements for developing autonomous vehicles in Europe.
POST-CONFERENCE INTERACTIVE WORKSHOP DAY – 01.12.16
Benefit from the co-located conferences with three concurring workshops in the morning on 48V standardization, the latest strategies for effective sensor fusion, and steering improvements and vehicle redundancies for automated driving.
Three concurring afternoon workshops will cover the topics on protection concepts for 48V automotive power supply systems, fault detection of sensor technologies, and confirmation measures for reviewing safety of complex systems.
