Functional Safety and SOTIF - Principles and Practice

The ISO 26262 standard for functional safety for road vehicles has fast achieved a lead role but leaves plenty of room for interpretation. In addition, the new standard SOTIF (Safety Of The Intended Functionality) ISO/PAS 21448 now goes beyond dealing with potential hazards caused by malfunctioning behavior of E/E systems. It covers hazardous behaviors in absence of faults caused by technological limitations and includes evaluation of foreseeable misuse.

How much safety is necessary from a liability perspective? Which sections of ISO 26262 are relevant? Which adaptations are permitted to make? Which tool support is available? We will show with hands-on experiences how the standard is applied, and how processes and tools can support it.

What are the motivations behind the release of the new SOTIF standard? Which key aspects of PAS 21448 should be highlighted involving modern assistance system for autonomous driving (ADAS)? How do you align with functional safety according ISO 26262 when needed? This webinar introduces the principles and basic techniques for specification, analysis, verification and validation of functional safety and SOTIF. Learn which requirements apply to your projects. Benefit from frequently asked questions which we see in our worldwide consulting projects. Maintain your competitive edge and take advantage of our expert tips.
