Training Functional Safety with SOTIF (ISO 21448)

The ISO 26262 standard for the functional safety of road vehicles has quickly taken on a pioneering role, but leaves much room for interpretation. In addition, the new SOTIF standard (Safety Of The Intended Functionality) ISO/PAS 21448 now goes beyond the handling of potential hazards due to incorrect behavior of E/E systems. It covers dangerous behavior in the event of faults caused by technological restrictions and includes the assessment of foreseeable misuse.

What are the reasons for publishing the new SOTIF standard? Which focal points of PAS 21448 must be considered in a modern assistance system for autonomous driving (ADAS)? If necessary, how do you orient yourself towards functional safety according to ISO 26262?

This one-day training introduces the principles and basic techniques for the specification, analysis, verification and validation of functional safety and SOTIF. Find out what requirements apply to your projects. Benefit from frequently asked questions we come across in our worldwide consulting projects.
