ISO/PAS 21448 Advanced Training, Technical aspects to achieve the safety of the intended functionality (SOTIF)

Adding value with our service portfolio

Course Description

Based on our long-standing practical experience in the field of Functional Safety we supply you with the necessary expertise for the new ISO/PAS 21448 dealing with “Safety of the Intended Functionality” (SOTIF). For driver assistant systems and automated driving, the safety of the intended functionality (SOTIF) is a very important complement to functional safety. While functional safety addresses the integrity of electrical and/or electronic (E/E) systems within road vehicles, SOTIF deals with the minimization of risk from insufficiencies of functional performance and robustness. The various aspects of safety are key issues in the development. Our training is based on the latest concepts developed in industry, including TÜV SÜD, used to implement the public available specification ISO/PAS 21448.

Course Benefits

  • This SOTIF training provides insight into the implementation of the of safety of the intended functionality (SOTIF) according to the public available specification
  • ISO/PAS 21448, and the relation to the ISO 26262 standard.
  • The SOTIF training includes examples and short exercises with focus to the field of highly automated driving.
  • We can also offer this training course as in-house training on site in your company.

Who Will Benefit?

Safety managers, system developers, sensor and component developers, test engineers and all who are concerned with developing innovative advanced driving assist systems (ADAS) and highly automated driving (HAD) functions aiming to implement their developments on the basis of the recognized international specification ISO/PAS 21448.

Course Agenda

Amongst others the training covers the following topics:

  • Analysis and evaluation of risk imposed by the intended functionality
  • Identification and provisions regarding triggering events during system development
  • Ways to evaluate misuse and adequate precautions
  • Specification of the intended function and evaluation of functional architectures
  • Validation strategies to support the argumentation towards SOTIF
  • Discussion of issues regarding derivation of validations targets
  • Approaches to argue the achievement of overall risk targets
  • Relation and combination of the SOTIF (ISO/PAS 21448) and functional safety (ISO 26262)
