March 2022 – SOTIF & AI Robustness

Thursday March 10 @15:00-17:00 CET via Zoom.

The 26262 Club “Open House” is a digital meeting series designed to tackle specific aspects of functional safety. For March’s edition we are doing a deep dive in SOTIF and robustness in automotive AI for functional safety managers.

The meeting is free and open for all. We welcome diverse opinions and look forward to fruitful discussions. Don’t forget to book your ticket below!

Discussion topics

PART 1: Overview of the new version of the SOTIF standard in regards to AD and AI/ML. Automated driving is not a matter of “if” but a matter of “when”. The automotive industry is currently working on a lot of new standards with the topic “safety of automated driving”. These new upcoming standards are planned too be released within the next years.

SOTIF (Safety Of The Intended Functionality) is a standard with complements the term “Functional Safety” together with the ISO 26262 and it provides also some basic aspects for Automated Driving and AI/ML based functions.

PART 2: Algorithmic verification methods for ensuring the safety and robustness of the Automotive AI Systems.

During the second part of the webinar we will deep dive into methods for identifying failure scenarios for complex prediction and decision making systems such as autonomous driving and battery management systems as well as to how to automatically improve safety and robustness of these systems based on failure analysis.
