Vector Consulting Services is the preferred supplier on functional safety for many companies


Your Situation

What are the motivations behind the release of the new SOTIF (Safety of the Intended Functionality) standard? Which key aspects of PAS 21448 should be highlighted in a complex development project involving modern assistance system for autonomous driving (ADAS)? How do you identify measures to reduce SOTIF related risk and align with Functional Safety according ISO 26262 when needed? Are you looking for practical guidance for the efficient application of SOTIF?

The new standard PAS 21448 focuses on driver assistance features with automation levels 1 and 2. Its purpose 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. SOTIF defines goals for the applied engineering processes and a methodology for the assessment of the target functions and provides examples for a suitable improvement measure.
