ISO/PAS 21448 Basic Training, Essentials to achieve the safety of the intended functionality (SOTIF)

Initial introduction to the public available specification ISO/PAS 21448

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 basic SOTIF training provides an initial introduction to the public available specification ISO/PAS 21448, and the therein featured topic of safety of the intended functionality (SOTIF).

We can also offer this training course as in-house training on site in your company.

Who Will Benefit?

Managers, safety managers, system developers, sensor and component developers, quality representatives, 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:

  • Safety of the intended functionality (SOTIF) as an integral part to a concept of holistic safety for automated vehicles
  • Basic understanding and terminology in the field of the safety of the intended functionality (SOTIF)
  • SOTIF and its relation to performance limitations of sensors and algorithms, perception of environment and situation awareness
  • Essential building blocks to achieve the SOTIF (according to ISO/PAS 21448)
  • Relevance of validation targets for the achievement of overall risk targets
  • Outline to strategies supporting the argumentation towards SOTIF
  • Support for appraisal of technical arguments towards the SOTIF and recommendations towards product release
